In Speers Point NSW on “Community Facility (Multi...” at Speers Point Park 23 Park Road Speers Point NSW 2284:

Kiara Davis commented

My family and I frequently use this park and since the recent refurbishments it is a great place for gatherings, exercise, and general outdoor activities. I strongly feel that the proposed placement of the multi purpose arts centre would have a huge impact on the public use of the park. The extra wide walkway through the park is perfect for the farmers markets, and young families teaching their kids to ride bikes or scooters etc. Putting a building there would be a major hindrance.

As some others have stated, there is a performing arts centre less than 10km away at Warners Bay, and numerous other halls available for hire in the Lake Macquarie area. It seems like a waste of funds and resources to build one so close to another.
If the project was to go ahead, there has to be a much more practical placement for the building. there is ample space at the western end of the park near the boat ramp, the old off leash dog exercise area. This space is rarely used now due to the new fenced dog park.
Please take into consideration the current use of the area and the major effect placing a building into the middle of a popular family gathering park will have on the local community.
