A proposal to construct a zoo at Bungarribee in Western Sydney Parklands is now on exhibition for community feedback.
The Department of Planning and Environment has invited the community to share their views on the proposal which seeks to construct a new zoo over an area of around 16.5 hectares within the Western Sydney Parklands.
The proposal also involves the construction and operation of a zoological facility which will include animal exhibits, restaurants and cafes, a show arena, picnic areas, waterways and car-parking.
A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the community always has an opportunity to share their views.
“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive and this is taken into consideration when we develop our recommendations,” the spokesperson said.
“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
