We’re refreshing our Hosken Reserve Masterplan in 2021 to ensure that planning for this site reflects community needs and expectations. This process will be led by an independent community engagement and master planning consultant to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be part of the conversation.

A report about Hosken Reserve was tabled at our Council meeting on 9 December 2020. Given the last masterplan was completed over 10 years ago, Council officers recommended a refresh of the Hosken Reserve Masterplan and to give sufficient time to hear from the community about the future of this site.

We want to ensure that a thorough understanding of current and future demand and use of the site is captured and understood.

Right now, we’re in the process of contracting a third-party independent consultant to plan the engagement program and lead the masterplan refresh. We’ll be updating this page to let you know when the consultant has been contracted.

In early 2021, there will be a range of opportunities for residents, ratepayers, sporting clubs and schools in the area to talk to us about their ideas to help shape the project. We think we’ll have a comprehensive series of engagement opportunities on offer and we’re looking forward to moving towards a great outcome for our community.

We’ll also work with the community engagement and master planning consultants and the community to undertake research and site, environmental, and community infrastructure assessments.

A refreshed master plan will be presented to Council for consideration in May 2021 following a substantial community engagement process.
