1400+ pins dropped on the map!

Thank you for your ideas and comments


Thank you very much to everyone who contributed ideas and comments to the online mapping exercise and completed the Off Road Cycling Survey.

Community feedback is currently being reviewed and targeted consultation is ongoing with some special interest groups.

Your feedback, ideas and stories will inform the development of a draft Open Space and Recreation Strategy that helps us plan for and manage our open spaces and outdoor recreational facilities. This includes parks, playgrounds, bushland areas, beaches, walking and cycling tracks.

Please feel free to contact Jessica Currie, Coordinator Recreation Planning by email or on 1300 434 434 at any time throughout the project.
