The City of Burnside has commenced the development of two Reserve Master Plans for Hazelwood Park and Kensington Gardens Reserve. The planning process allows our community to provide input into the process and be kept informed of project progress.

What is a Master Plan?

A Reserve Master Plan is a document that oulines the vision that will guide the growth and development of parks and recreation in the City of Burnside for the next ten years.

The purpose of the two Master Plans will be to set out the objectives and strategies to manage development and change over time based on the needs of the local community, sporting clubs and other users.

A key element in the planning process is to develop Master Plans that are practical and achievable for Council and the community. The Master Plans will provide future directions on the development of sporting and recreation facilities and landscape design improvements.

The Master Plans will also include recommended priority actions, schematic designs and a funding strategy based on the contributions of the City of Burnside and other user groups.

The Master Planning Process

Council will undertake an engagement process that will provide three formal opportunities for the community and stakeholders to have their say in the development of each of the Master Plans.

Stage 1 - Ideas and analysis

This survey is part of the first stage in developing both Master Plans by gathering information from the community and stakeholders.

Council will also meet with interest groups, clubs, associations and other key stakeholders as part of this process.

The information gathered will be analysed and considered as part of the concept plan proposals.

A technical assessment of the condition and the use of the existing reserves will also be included as part of a site analysis process.

The aim of this first phase of consultation is to provide the community with an opportunity to have input that will inform the development of the Master Plans.

Please respond to the survey to have your say. We are interested in how these spaces are used by the community; what the community values about Hazelwood Park and Kensington Gardens Reserve; and any areas of enhancement, future needs and opportunities that Council should consider as part of the plans’ development.

Stage 2 - Concept Plan

Information gathered in Stage 1 will be used to develop Master Plan concept plans. These plans will be presented to Council, stakeholders and the community for feedback.

Meetings with community and stakeholder groups may be required to further refine ideas for specific aspects of the concepts prior to the proposals being presented as part of a formal community consultation process.

Stage 3 - Master Plan

The concepts selected in Stage 2 will be refined and further developed, based on community and stakeholder feedback, to create a specific Master Plan for both sites.

The Master Plans will be presented to the community and stakeholders for feedback prior to them being revised, if necessary, and formally adopted by Council.

How do I get involved?

You can be involved in the Master Plan development process at any stage of this project. This information forms part of Stage 1 of the planning process.

You can decide if you provide a response with information on both Hazelwood Park and Kensington Gardens Reserve - or only comment on one of the locations.

You can nominate to be kept informed of the progress of either one or both projects.

Please complete the below survey by 5 pm on Friday 1 May 2015.

For more information

Contact Barry Cant, Strategic Projects Officer, or Melanie Spurling, Project Officer at burnside@burnside.sa.gov.au or phone 8366 4200.

What happens next?

The information gathered from this survey will be used to develop a number of concept Master Plans. These plans will be presented to Council, stakeholders and the community for feedback.

Open days will be held for the community to view the concept plans and to talk to Council staff about the project.

One open day will be held at each of the sites on different dates.

These dates will be announced on Council’s website, through Twitter, and in Council’s Messenger Newspaper column.
