  • Increase in car parking provision including hardstand areas, trafficable lawns and amenity landscaping

  • Council Decision

    Tuesday 26 July 2020

The Draft Master Plan was first developed a number of years ago in consultation with the community and key stakeholders, as Council sought to put in place an overarching strategic document to guide future improvements to this important sporting and recreational precinct. 

A number of the recreational elements of the Draft Master Plan have subsequently been delivered (such as the running track), or are currently being delivered (including improvements to the playground and dog park). With the croquet club no longer operating from the precinct, and increasing membership at the tennis and football clubs, it is timely to revisit and refresh the Draft Master Plan prior to Council endorsement.

Council is already delivering upgrades to the Rotary Centenary Playground and the adjacent dog park, both of which are located on the northern side of the Oval.

Whilst future improvements described in the Draft Master Plan are as yet unbudgeted, an overarching plan is required to ensure that there is a coordinated approach to where future development can occur without conflicting with other improvements. The Draft Master Plan can also be used to engage with government and sporting bodies when seeking funding for the improvements.
