Waverley Bowling Club provides an affordable, healthy outdoor experience for local residents, including families with children. This much loved public space is under threat from the East’s Group’s latest development proposal.
The East’s Group is set to turn the Waverley Bowling Club site into residential towers. The proposed 4 x 3-7 storey towers will replace Waverley Bowling Club’s three championship greens with:
- 78 seniors units and facilities
- two basement levels for 178 car spaces
- much diminished registered clubhouse and two greens
Why we care
Waverley is running out of open green and recreational space.
What precious public space we have is rapidly disappearing; the tennis courts in Simpson Street, Bondi have been removed and now the Waverley Bowling Club is under threat.
Residents fear the East’s Group’s development will a result in the loss of precious community amenity as well as added congestion and traffic.
What we’re doing
For over 2 years, Waverley Action Group has supported lobbying efforts by community groups, including Save Waverley Bowlo, as well as the local precinct to stop this planning proposal.
In August 2019, Waverley Council and community representatives delivered submissions to the Land and Environment Court outlining their concerns and objections.
