Consultation has concluded

Council is asking you to have your say regarding the draft Playground Strategy and Action Plan to ensure it will fulfil the community’s expectations and desires for the future management of some of Council’s most popular assets.

Background

The Playground Strategy is used to guide the management, maintenance and design of playgrounds within the City of Burnside.

The first version of the City of Burnside’s Playground Strategy was endorsed in 2007 and has now been reviewed.

Why the review

The review was undertaken to ensure that the strategy remains relevant to the current needs and desires of the community while setting realistic goals in terms of management and maintenance of some of the City’s most popular assets.

The principles of the Playground Strategy remain the same, and the overall vision of the strategy is to provide “a range of play experiences that are accessible, safe and fun”.

See more on key changes in the Information section below.

Community Consultation

Council is seeking feedback on the draft Strategy and associated Playground Replacement Action Plan 2014 – 2025 before it is adopted.

You are invited to comment on the Playground Strategy and associated Playground Replacement Action Plan 2014 – 2025 that replaces the current Playground Strategy and indicate that it fulfils your expectations and desires for the future management of one of Council’s most popular assets.

The Playground Replacement Action Plan 2014 – 2025 guides the planning of playground upgrades and replacements. When upgrades and replacements are undertaken at individual playgrounds, separate engagements will be undertaken with the local community.

How do I have my say?

Have your say by completing the survey below by 5 pm Monday 7 July 2014.

Next Steps

The responses from the survey will be reviewed and collated and then presented in a report to Council that highlights where any appropriate changes may be required to the draft document.

It is anticipated that the report will be presented to Council at its meeting of 22 July 2014.
