Public Exhibition - Liverpool Pioneers Memorial Park Preliminary Design Proposal

Liverpool City Council is currently responsible for the care and management of the former St Luke’s Anglican Cemetery, now known as Liverpool Pioneers’ Memorial Park. The cemetery was established in 1820 and remained in use until the 1950s, when the Crown gave care and control to Liverpool City Council.  In the early 1970s, Council transformed the cemetery with the creation of a rest park for the Liverpool community’s use.

In 2010, Liverpool City Council commenced the refurbishment and reinstatement of the cemetery by returning 300 original burial headstones and creating new pathways, lighting, fencing and formal contemplation areas.

As a former cemetery, the park and its archaeological deposits are considered to be of state significance and therefore warrants guidance and protection to ensure any further works undertaken within the park, including maintenance, restoration and the installation of new monuments, considers this significance and seeks to minimise the degree of impact.

Liverpool City Council is publicly exhibiting the Preliminary Design proposing a landscape upgrade of the northern end of Liverpool Pioneers’ Memorial Park. The park is bounded between Macquarie Street and Northumberland Street and on the north by the Hume Highway.

The Preliminary Design proposes a range of improvements including :

  • A children’s play space
  • Re-purposing the area of the large mound
  • Installation of park furniture including picnic shelters and seating
  • Landscape improvements including new garden beds and tree planting
  • Connection and improved pathway access through the  northern end of the cemetery
  • Additional interpretive signage

HAVE YOUR SAY

Council invites residents and interested members of the public to view the proposed preliminary design and provide feedback by completing the survey online by 30 November 2022.

Written submissions concerning the preliminary design are also invited and should be received by 30 November 2022 (quoting file no. 2021/4042) and addressed to:

Liverpool City Council is publicly exhibiting its Draft Community Engagement Strategy and Draft Community Participation Plan 2022 from 28 October – 25 November 2022.

The Community Engagement Strategy and accompanying Community Participation Plan detail Council's overarching engagement principles and notifications of planning functions for Council. The documents guide engagement practices with local community and stakeholders and deliver principles of community engagement in an inclusive, collaborative, transparent, authentic and timely manner to facilitate effective decision making.

Attached to the engagement strategy is Councils amended Community Participation plan. It involves minor administrative changes including the update of land use definitions to reflect the standard instrument, removal of requirement to notify applications in the local newspaper and a clause to allow discretion for additional notification requirements for applications considered to have significant community interest.

The Strategy is reviewed within three months of the local government elections to ensure it reflects both City and community sentiments in relation to community engagement practices and incorporates statutory requirements.

The Bridge on Kurrajong Road that connects Carnes Hill is proposed to be named “Harry Hunt Memorial Bridge” in commemoration of the late Harry Hunt OAM.

The location of the bridge is outlined in Figure 1 below:

Proposed Bridge Naming

Figure 1: Location of the Bridge

Harry Hunt OAM

Harry Hunt OAM, often known by the title “Mr Liverpool” provided an unmatched contribution to the Liverpool community over the past 50 years. Harry had a long term association with the Liverpool area and made vast contributions to the local community, through his work as a business person, volunteer, leader and mentor.

Harry's engagement with the Liverpool community began in 1960 when he commenced his work at Hunts Motel at the Crossroads, initially assisting his family in the operation and management of the Hunts Motel enterprise. Over time, Harry would develop the skills and knowledge to take over the management of Hunts, and by 1980, he was the sole owner of Hunts Motel and Function Centre, a position he held for 42 years, until his passing in February, 2022. During his time at Hunts, Harry became involved in community programs and generously donated his function centre to host an array of charity and community fundraisers and events for the disadvantaged.

Harry’s contributions extended far beyond Hunts Motel as a business and function centre and stretched deep into the Liverpool community. Harry was a part of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years and held the position of president of the Chamber of Commerce for 13 years. After 20 years’ service with the Chamber of Commerce, Harry was recognised as a patron and lifelong member. In 2022, upon his passing, Harry was inducted as the first member into the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Hall of fame in recognition for his work and support for the Chamber and businesses in Liverpool through his service and leadership. It was his knowledge, compassion and genuine love for the Liverpool community that allowed Harry to work well alongside other business owners and entrepreneurs, as he inspired and mentored many business people in the community today.

Harry was recognised as the Liverpool Business Person of the year in 1990, and in the same year he was Awarded Officer of the Order of Liverpool. In 2005, he was appointed Companion of the Order of Liverpool, also receiving the City of Liverpool Citizen Award that year. The Quota Club of Liverpool recognised Harry Hunt as the Citizen of the year in 1992 for his services to the community of Liverpool.

In 2007, Harry was awarded the prestigious Order of Australia Medal for service to the community as a supporter of fundraising events for charitable groups, and the City of Liverpool through a range of business, service and social welfare organisations. He was then further recognised in 2021 as the Liverpool Senior Citizen of the year.

While Harry was honored with such awards and titles, he always remained humble and his heart was always with his family and helping his community. Harry dedicated his life to giving back to his community and was driven by his passion to teach and share his knowledge, time and skills with others.

Submissions on the proposed Bridge name are invited and should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Liverpool City Council, via email: lcc@liverpool.nsw.gov.au quoting the reference number SPN-4/2022.

All submissions must be received by Tuesday 1st November 2022.

Council received a street naming request to rename Squillaciote Crescent in Austral. Squillaciote was the surname of an early resident of the area and current residents have advised that the name is difficult to pronounce.

The name Squillaciote is not in line with relevant sections of the NSW Address Policy User Manual as follows:

  • Section 6.7.1 Ensuring Public Safety and Service Delivery - Ensuring Public Safety and Service Delivery Road names shall not risk public and operational safety for emergency response, or cause confusion for transport, communication, and mail services.
  • Section 6.7.2 Language – Road names shall be easy to pronounce, spell and write, and preferably not exceed three words (including the road type) or 25 characters.

There are concerns that in an emergency, residents will not be able to pronounce or spell the street name which may cause confusion and delay an emergency response.

Proposed renaming to Driver Street, Austral

In consultation with Council’s Heritage Officer, a new street name has been proposed and assessed using Council’s Naming Convention Policy and the NSW Address Policy and User Manual. The Geographical Names Board have granted pre-approval for the street name, Driver Street.

The name “Driver” is in commemoration of John and Elizabeth Driver, with John being an early land grant holder. John along with his wife Elizabeth, were strong supporters of the Rum Rebellion. The rum rebellion of 1808 was Australia's first and only military coup, staged by the New South Wales Corps to depose Governor William Bligh for the illicit rum trade of early Sydney. The Drivers were one of 16 of the colony’s principal inhabitants who signed a letter in support of the Coup to disband Governor William Bligh, written by John Macarthur, and addressed to Major Johnston on 26 January 1808, the day of the coup.

Elizabeth subscribed £30 towards Macarthur’s expenses for his anticipated trial in England against Bligh. The Drivers received a 200-acre land grant at Cabramatta for their support of the rum rebellion also known as the anti-Bligh regime. John Driver died in 1810 and Elizabeth Driver in 1825.

Driver Street is consistent with the street naming theme of early residents for this section of Austral and has been assessed against the road naming principals detailed in the NSW Address Policy and User Manual and has been checked for any potential conflicts using the Geographical Names Board’s online road naming system. The name is easily pronounceable and does not contain unusual spelling.

Council considered this proposal at the 31 August 2022 Council meeting. A copy of the Council resolution is provided below:

Call for nominations – Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee

Nominations are open for the appointment of community members to the Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee.

Many State Significant projects in NSW have Community Consultative Committees. These committees provide a forum for dialogue between the proponent and representatives of the local community, stakeholder groups and local councils on issues directly relating to the project.

About the project

The Moorebank Logistics Park is a vital piece of infrastructure for NSW which will transform the way containerised freight moves through Port Botany through the delivery of a fully automated port-to-site rail link. Once complete, the Moorebank facility will move 1.5 million shipping containers annually by rail instead of road and create significant benefit by:

  • Taking 2,700 heavy truck movements off Sydney’s roads each day
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 110,000 tonnes every year
  • Delivering $11 billion in economic benefits through improved productivity
  • Creating an expected 6,800 jobs

Membership of the Community Consultative Committee

Established in 2019, the Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee has an active membership of people who live locally or are members of a stakeholder group.

  • have knowledge and awareness of the project and related issues of concern to the local community
  • be able to represent and communicate the interests of the affected local community
  • be willing to adhere to the committee’s code of conduct.

In addition, representatives of stakeholder groups must:

  • be a member of a stakeholder group with an interest in the project – including an industry, community, environmental or Aboriginal group
  • have knowledge and awareness of the project and related issues of concern
  • be able to represent and communicate the interests of the group or community
  • be willing to adhere to the committee’s code of conduct.

The role of a committee member is voluntary.

Figure 3: Location of proposed Regal Lane – Ariel View

FIGURE 3

Figure 4: Location of proposed Regal Lane – Street View

The name “Regal” originates from Liverpool’s first and only theatre which opened in 1911. The theatre was located at this site before it was demolished in 2014 for the construction of the Quest Hotel which currently stands adjacent to the laneway. The theatre was known as Liverpool Picture Palace, then rebuilt as the grand Butterfly Theatre in 1925 before being renamed the Regal Theatre in the 1940’s. It continued as Liverpool’s only theatre until it closed in the late 1970’s.

Naming the Laneway “Regal Lane” will re-connect residents and visitors to the local history of the site.

Submissions on the proposed names are invited and should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Liverpool City Council, via email: lcc@liverpool.nsw.gov.au quoting the above SPN reference number.

All submissions must be received by 12 June 2022.
