Several months ago, the council agreed to start the process to assess whether the un-named park at Maunds and Pink Street could be rezoned to medium density residential, before trying to sell it off.

This decision was met with backlash from the community and residents who still utilise the park and a petition was made and gathered hundreds of signatures.

If the council successfully pushes ahead with the rezoning, there will be a public notification period which will allow residents to send in objections to the proposal.
