Group Chief Executive Officer of the Easts Group | Sydney Roosters, Scott Bennetts, today announced that the Group’s Board has withdrawn the planning proposal it lodged with Waverley Council in September. It sought zoning changes for the site of Waverley Bowling Club to allow additional uses.
“Much of what has been said about our proposal is misinformed or simply false. However, such campaigns have raised community concerns. As a sports club within the community, we are cognisant of the views that have been expressed, thus the withdrawal of the proposal,” Mr. Bennetts said.
“I will repeat, however, that the Waverley Bowling Club, in its tenuous financial position, cannot be sustained as it is and the East Group Board will now take its time to re-evaluate what direction to take with the Club,” Mr Bennetts said.
