The use of part of Sunningdale Reserve, Sunningdale Road Fulham Gardens, has been requested for the duration of construction for a stormwater detention basin that will be located within Lot 1 in Deposited Plan 42246. The construction of the stormwater detention basin was approved as part of Development Application 252/2678/18 and serves to ensure stormwater evacuation for the development allotments of White Holdings Pty Ltd, thereby reducing stormwater inundation to Sunningdale Road, Henley Place and surrounding properties.

As the land parcels that form Sunningdale Reserve are classified as Community Land, Council is required to manage the land in accordance with the relevant Community Land Management Plan (CLMP). The current CLMP permits a portion of the reserve to be used for stormwater management purposes but it does not allow Council to be able to issue White Holdings Pty Ltd a licence agreement to exclusive occupy the works area.

Council is required to undertake community consultation (Sec 202(2) of the LG Act) with respect to consideration of the request by White Holding Pty Ltd to occupy a portion of Lot 1 in Deposited Plan 42246 for a period of approximately 20 weeks.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the provisions of Section 202 of the Local Government Act 1999, the City of Charles Sturt proposes to grant a licence to White Holdings Pty Ltd for occupation of a portion of land (Lot 1 in Deposited Plan 44246) within Sunningdale Reserve.
