Considering the catchment of the new population it is disappointing not to see BBQ facilities and limited picnic shelters, Council should seriously consider how parks can provide the best outcomes for a local community. If this park is going to provide recreation for the local community, it would be best to cater for multiple uses and provide facilities for this purpose. Council needs to lead the way and require developers to provide suitable facilities.
The Hilltop Park revegetation strategy should only focus on rehabilitating the remnant vegetation being critically endangered Cumberland Plains Wooland of the Sydney region. The remnant bushland should be shown as part of the heritage theme and maintained as such into the future. Planting non local endemic species and exotics to ‘provide additional colour and variety to the softscape palette’ is not acceptable practice for similar bio-banking and offset sites, therefore the planting of exotic plants should not be undertaken for the revegetation strategy.
