Heathcote residents are being asked to comment on the draft concept design for Barrack Reserve before work begins on the detailed design phase.
The proposed redevelopment would include updated change rooms, improved internal and external accessibility, additional storage, extended and refurbished social pavilion, renovated kitchen / kiosk, new meeting room, upgraded public amenities, redeveloped multi-purpose area and foyer.
Detailed design work is proposed to start in the 2014-15 financial year, with views to attract funding over subsequent years.
Active and healthy communities manager Patrick Jess said residents should not miss this opportunity to have their say on the proposed redevelopment.
‘‘Barrack Reserve is a community asset and a great hub for Heathcote residents that is not only used for sport but for local groups to meet,’’ Mr Jess said.
‘‘The concept design highlights how the reserve will be turned into a multi-purpose facility, so the proposed changes need to meet the needs of all users.
‘‘One of the challenges will be to rally community funding support to complement council’s future investment in the project.’’
Residents have until June 13 to comment on the concept design and feedback can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
