Peppermint Gums Reserve Upgrade - Round 1 Consultation

Project Overview

Consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

All feedback received will be collated and presented to Council for discussion at a Workshop during February 2022.

Peppermint Gums Reserve, located at the corner of Dean Street and Barker Road, Prospect, is scheduled for an upgrade as detailed in Council’s Open Space Strategy. A budget bid for the 2022/2023 financial year will be submitted for the construction of new facilities, and we are ready to start planning.

The purpose of this engagement is to inform our community of the proposed upgrade, and obtain feedback as part of the design process.

The facilities are currently outdated, have reached the end of their useful life and no longer meet the needs of our community. The expected outcome is a new space that responds to the community’s needs and incorporates up-to-date facilities. It is important for this upgrade to occur for our community who will benefit through increased use of the facilities, improving their health and wellbeing.

Round 1 of consultation closes Sunday 21 November 2021.

Have Your Say on what you would like to see included in the upgrade by completing the short survey or providing a written submission. The feedback will be used to prepare a draft concept plan that will go to community consultation again.
