Council seeking feedback on possible Redhead BMX facility

Lake Macquarie City Council is asking residents in Redhead and surrounds whether they support a potential BMX/Pump track facility being built in the area.

A BMX facility in Charlestown or Redhead has been identified by Council in the Charlestown Contributions Plan and following a review of the Plan, an opportunity to accelerate a facility in the Redhead area has been raised.

Council’s Manager Assets Management Brendan Callander said Council wants to hear from residents about the proposal to get a better understanding of the community sentiment for a BMX/Pump track facility.

“Council has been planning over a number of years for future BMX facilities at three locations in the Charlestown catchment, including Croudace Bay, Hillsborough and Charlestown/Redhead,” Mr Callander said.

“We’ve identified three potential sites in Redhead where we may be able to accelerate a new facility, including Liles Oval, Webb Park and Molly O’Connor Park, which are appropriate and could accommodate a facility like this. We’re seeking the community’s feedback on whether there is a broader need for a facility and which location is right for all residents.”

A small permanent all-weather track made of asphalt is part of Council’s considerations, which would cater for a broad range of age groups and skill levels.

The community can provide feedback on the potential BMX/Pump track facility in Redhead at two community drop-in sessions or by visiting shape.lakemac.com.au/redhead-bmx-track and completing a short survey.

Community drop-in sessions

· Saturday 12 December – 10am to noon at Webb Park, Redhead

· Thursday 17 December – 3.30pm to 5pm at Webb Park, Redhead
