Ski Jump Proposal Gets Response From Residents


Last night, Monday April 3, 2017, close to 40 people attended the April Lennox Head Residents’ Association meeting. The first item on the agenda was the proposed development of the Olympic ski jump training facility at Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre.

Discussion took place for about an hour before the following motion was moved and passed.

‘In response to the pre-DA lodgement briefing on 26 March 2017 at the Lennox Head Community Centre, the Lennox Head Residents’ Association rejects in principle the Winter Olympic Training Facility proposed for Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre, in particular the imposing height and bulk.’

The association will respond in detail when the D. A. has been made accessible to the public.

    I wholeheartedly agree that the ski jump is an inappropriate development.
    The reason both tourists and locals LOVE this place is the natural beauty of the beach, heathlands and all things mother nature has provided. This industrial monster looks like a coal loader in old Newcastle or Port Kembla, to spend so much of our money on this thing is something only our childish inept Govt could dream up, what are they thinking!! Sport and rec centre could run some programmes for ALL kids to help with the obesity epidemic affecting this nation, not an elite few.
