The planning process, which included consultation with sporting clubs, community groups and local community members, has resulted in the production of 11 Master Plans. These Master Plans will guide the future development of community hubs across the City, ensuring that facilities remain relevant and adaptable over time. The Master Plans are supported by sound financial management and maintenance practices included in the Council’s Long Term Financial Plan.
The Master Planning Initiative was based on the following objectives:
- Identify current and future demand, and the best use for the reserve and facilities at each of the hubs
- Develop concept plans for each of the hubs with a sound rationale behind the various design elements
- Provide direction in the sustainable allocation of resources for the ongoing maintenance and development of reserves and co-located facilities
- Gather a sound evidence base for the future development of the hubs to assist in sourcing external funds.
An overview of the Master Planning Initiative and subsequent approach to decision making around individual elements and projects can be found in the Executive Summary. The full report is currently being finalised and will be available in the second half of 2017.
