A DA has been submitted to Bayside Council to move Kogarah Golf Course on the Cooks River opposite the airport to a new site on the playing fields south of the M5 in Banksia, and redevelop the existing golf course for housing.
This will affect the Cooks River to Brighton cycle route.
Several bicycle groups plus Bicycle NSW have submitted objections to the DA, as the bicycle route is an important one and not enough detail was given on temporary routes during construction, or possible long term rerouting via the Cooks River foreshore. A new foot bridge across Muddy Ck at Cooks River could provide a direct route to Botany Bay.
IWBC made a submission to Bayside Council.
