Equitable access to open space is a hot topic on Sydney’s lower north shore in the lead up to the local government elections on Saturday 4 December.

Tensions are running high in communities. So what can we do? Where are the opportunities? How can we engage communities so they ARE heard?

How can we manage the needs of people and our environment? How can we allow room for habitat, recreation and sport?

This event will feature urban planning experts, landscape architects, and local government councillors and candidates, about how we might find a better way to manage our access to open space - and plan for the future of the lower north shore.
