The Balcombe Park bushland,
Balcombe Road, Beaumaris, opposite Sandringham College, is the only one of three sites for a 240 mē concrete skateboard ramp, promoted by a Bayside City Council staff report, that has a conservation Management Plan. Some 850 mē of its bushland would have been lost for a ramp and 10 metre buffer around it. Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc. strongly opposed that scheme.


Cr Derek Wilson
led the successful move in Council to save Balcombe Park. Clearing a
13 metre
bushland swathe to enlarge the soccer pitch has been a subsequent threat.
