Tourism and Economic Development Advisory Committee member Cr Sean Choat said the proposed car park next to Lions Park was an integral part of Council’s proposal to develop hiking trails on Mount Glen Rock.

“We listened to the concerns of the community, who raised the issue that with the growing popularity of Esk, parking was already at a premium,” he said.

“More off -street car parking close to trail access points and local businesses would assist with managing this demand.

“Public feedback would be sought as part of the formal development process”, Cr Choat said.

The Council resolved to seek funding for the Mount Glen Rock hiking trail project under the State Government’s Growing Future Tourism Program in early 2024 and the Australian Government’s Thriving Suburbs Program.
