Corowa Shire Council will work with the Mulwala community to prepare a Master Plan for Lonsdale Reserve, Mulwala.
As the principal recreation reserve in Mulwala, the need was identified to develop a plan that will guide the future development and management of the reserve and create a strong level of community ownership.
Council allocated budget this financial year to undertake the project which is expected to be completed early in 2013.
CPG Australia have been engaged to assist with the project and Principal Consultant Simon Eakin is looking forward to again working with the Mulwala community.
‘We really enjoyed working on the Mulwala Streetscape project and this has given us a good understanding of the community. Lonsdale Reserve is a great recreational space which has a lot of potential and we expect to see some really good outcomes as a result of this project' he said.
CPG Australia are experienced consultants that have been involved in a number of recreational master plans throughout the region. Their expertise in the fields of landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, urban design and civil engineering will ensure that favourable outcomes are achieved.
Corowa Shire Council Mayor, Fred Longmire recognised the importance of working with the community to develop the Lonsdale Reserve Master Plan.
‘Lonsdale Reserve is an important asset to the Mulwala community and we want to make sure we capture all the issues and identify any opportunities that might exist. It will be important that the plan considers the needs of the community and what capacity exists for its implementation' he said.
Key stakeholders and user groups have been invited to attend a ‘walk & talk' at the reserve on Thursday 11 October.
The wider community are also being given the opportunity to provide input into the development of the plan and are encouraged to complete the Lonsdale Reserve survey by Monday 29 October.
This survey can be completed online by following the link below or hardcopies are available at the Mulwala Civic Centre.
