  • Proposed Amendments

    by Steph23, 10 months ago

    The existing Reserve Management Plan generally anticipates the redevelopment of the reserve however a number of minor amendments are required to enable the redevelopment to be undertaken.

    The purpose of the proposed amendments is not to change the overall intent of the Reserve Management Plan which recognises the reserve as primarily being a significant community asset with public access being the key priority. The proposed changes will also provide ongoing protection to the Village Green.

    A summary of the proposed amendments along with a tracked changes version of Lakefront Reserve section of the Reserve Management Plan can be found in...
