Bob Campbell Oval Resurface

Councillor Andrew Zbik voted against the Bob Campbell Masterplan that included a synthetic grass playing surface. 

We have a delicate balance to support our local sporting clubs and to provide green-open space for social recreation.

"It was clear to me walking around Bob Campbell Oval. This was not just a sports field. It was green open space that the whole community enjoyed. Making this location synthetic would stop the broader community using this space"

I will support retaining Bob Campbell Oval as a natural turf field. 

There is a review underway by the State Government on synthetic sports fields. We should await the results of this review before proceeding with any plans for a synthetic field. 

The North Shore Regional Organisation of Councils has identified that we will face a shortage of sports fields in our region by 2036

We will need to look to new technologies to extend the life of our natural turf fields.
