Project History – where we started and how you helped

Progress on the Open Space, Recreation and Public Realm plan has been steady and ongoing.

Consultants, engaged by Council, (WAX Design and Suter Planners) have collated the results of previous consultation, and along with Council staff prepared the Open Space, Recreation and Public Realm Plan. The Plan incorporates two documents which have been informed strongly be previous engagement with the community.

The Strategy – This document identifies key themes and directions for open space, recreation and public real in the Mid Murray Council area.

Planning for Districts – This document identifies 5 key districts/areas and using community feedback highlights key opportunities and priorities within each district. By separating the region into 5 key districts Council is able to target and apply a balanced approach to enhancing open space, recreation facilities and the public realm across the Mid Murray Council area.

Simultaneously, Council has been working with Wax Design and Suter Planners on a master plan for Mary Ann Reserve which will guide future improvements to the regions premier riverfront reserve. Mary Ann Reserve supports diverse recreation and tourism activities (boating, houseboats, water sports, swimming, picnics, events, play) and benefits the town and the region. Council began consultation with the community in November 2016, and has drafted a master plan using the feedback and information from the community, council and other stakeholders.
