The Park’s Facilities Strategy is intended to address the diverse community needs and expectations through the appropriate provision of space, form and infrastructure ensuring parks and facilities are planned and allocated accordingly, whoever the provider, manager or deliverer of the facility service might be.
This document provides an assessment framework to guide the provision of public open space and infrastructure by establishing a hierarchy of parks based on their size, functionand infrastructure, founded on existing City of Armadale provision and benchmarked externally.
The purpose of the Parks Facilities Strategy is not only to provide information to developers operating within the City of Armadale but to guide and positively influence the City to improve and develop the City’s parklands in terms of the following:
- The nature of POS sites desired by the City
- The size and possible layout of local and district recreation and sporting spaces
- The functionality of POS with respect to local context
- The link between state and local POS expectations
