The next steps on the plan for a new reserve development on Birchs Road are under way after public consultation on the proposed masterplan.

The Council ran public consultation on a draft design for the reserve late last year, which received positive feedback from community, Council Major Projects Manager John Reid says.

A revised plan is being drawn up to include the feedback we received and an application will be lodged to designate the land for recreational purposes in the next few months. As part of this process there will be an opportunity to make submissions on the revised proposal.

The Council would like to thank the community for their feedback on the concept masterplan, Mr Reid says. “We appreciate the time and effort that has been put in to providing many thoughtful and overwhelmingly supportive comments. They have helped form the revised proposal and more will be included over time as we work on a more detailed layout of the park. We look forward to keeping working with the community to create this exciting community space.”
