What Are We?
The Blackwattle Cove Coalition (BCC) has been established from the communities
of Glebe, Pyrmont and Ultimo to collaborate on matters of joint interest.
It is our primary intention to work in consultation with the Wentworth Park
Sporting Complex Trust, the City of Sydney and the various State Government
Departments involved in planning the future of Wentworth Park and the
Blackwattle Bay foreshores.
Are Our Objectives?
For many years much of the Blackwattle Bay hinterland has been a neglected
wasteland dividing Ultimo/Pyrmont and Glebe. The Blackwattle Cove Coalition
aims to pursue rejuvenation of this area and make it a significant asset
to the surrounding communities by improving public access and community
facilities in the Blackwattle Bay/Wentworth Park precinct. Our priorities
are to achieve:
of an integrated planning regime involving relevant State and local
access to the Blackwattle Bay foreshores
of the portions of Wentworth Park presently administered separately
by the City of Sydney and the Wentworth Sporting Park Complex Trust
access to Wentworth Park and the development of community recreation
facilities in the park
development of the Bank Street, Blackwattle Bay foreshores and Fish
