Updated master plans out for public comment

Updated master plans for Birallee Park and Kelly Park are now out for public comment.

The master plans support the Sport and Recreation Plan 2014 to 2040 and the Physical Activity Strategy 2015 to 2020 and help the council to identify priorities and funding opportunities, ensure accessibility and inclusion for the community and guide community expectation.

First adopted in 2015, the plans have been significantly affected by the improvements to the several priority projects at the site including the replacement of the Wodonga Hockey Field, planned development of the regional cricket hub at Birallee Park and resurfacing works to the netball centre at Kelly Park.

“These documents allow us to plan to meet the aspirations and recreation needs of our growing city,” Manager Sport and Recreation Liona Edwards said.

“The development of the master plans helps the council identify priorities and funding opportunities, ensure accessibility and inclusion for the community and guide community expectation.

“It’s important to note that the master plans are not just about organised sport at these locations but also the opportunities for residents and community to be active and enjoy these areas.

“That’s why we encourage all user groups, community and key stakeholders to provide their feedback on the updated master plans.”

The master plans include staged indicative costing over the life of the master plans with works from the adopted plans to form part of the forward capital plan.

This also allows external funding opportunities to be sought to offset council contributions.

Copies of the masterplans are available at the library, community centres, council office in High St or online.

There will be two drop-in sessions for you to find out more and provide feedback on Wednesday, May 1.

  • Birallee Park - 4pm to 5pm
  • Kelly Park - 6pm to 7pm

The community can provide feedback by May 6 by:
