SUBMISSION TO COUNCIL CLOSED! waiting to hear the outcome in regards to Cobbitty Pony Club facing a major upheaval in the future with Camden Council proposing to build a cricket facility next to our grounds.  

10th December 2018

Cobbitty Pony Club is facing a major upheaval in the future with Camden Council proposing to build a cricket facility next to our grounds.  See below links for plans so you can see the details.

In order for them to build this facility, they will need access, which will be temporarily be sought through the Equestrian Park with a road right in front of our clubhouse.  The Council is proposing to move our clubhouse to the area we currently park our floats.  As a committee, we are opposed to the access coming through the Equestrian Park as the amount of traffic is likely to impact on our riders and it is ridiculous to make such a disruption and spend enormous amounts of money to move our clubhouse and upgrade the causeway for a temporary road.

We are urging current and former members to please view the plan and put something in writing to council by Friday 25.1.19.  As a club we fought hard to gain our current position on the grounds, which entailed all our members going to the Council meeting and many hours of lobbying to gain our position.  This is all being usurped by the Council who could build their access to the new Cricket facility up front and avoid taking part of the Equestrian Park which will inconvenience all user groups.

The Council has given Cobbitty Pony Club no undertaking in writing about where our gear will be stored whilst the clubhouse is being moved, who will pay for storage, and how long there will be no access via the causeway.

Please have your say as this is the only opportunity will we get to voice our opinions.
