We’d like to again thank the community for your ongoing participation and passion for this project. It has been a collaborative journey, and one that Council officers have learned a lot from. The community’s voice has been listened to and Council’s team has worked very hard to respond to feedback at every stage. We believe that the final Masterplan better reflects the community’s vision while meeting Council’s objectives for open space planning and future proofing our public spaces for our growing population.
