Led by Richard Simon of Simon Leisure, developing the draft Master Plan involved fourteen community groups and broader community consultation. Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explains the Master Plan will provide a clear direction for the future of the reserve.

“The Plan aims to find a balance between considering and respecting the reserve’s rich sporting history, and providing facilities which encourage new activities and innovative options for shared spaces,” Cr Rothfield said.

The draft Master Plan is on exhibition with feedback welcome until Friday, 2 June 2017. All feedback will be considered before the plan is presented to Council in August 2017.
