Exhibition of Draft Darley Park Master Plan

The draft plan has been developed by the appointed consultant (@Leisure Planners) in partnership with the Darley Park Recreation Reserve stakeholders and Moorabool Shire Council staff.

The draft plan was informed through previous community engagement and a needs assessment and provides strategic direction for future development and investment at the Reserve over the next 10 years.  While also identifying potential longer-term community use of the Reserve.

It should be highlighted, the concept (6A) on page 30 of the draft document is the preferred concept.

Council invites the community to provide your input on the draft Darley Park Master Plan, below.

The master plan will provide a vision and strategic direction for future development and investment at the reserve.

It will make recommendations based on a needs assessment at the reserve to provide justification for future developments.

This plan will provide guidance for future strategic financial planning by Council and fundraising initiatives by the reserve user groups.

  • Complete an Issues Paper that will outline key challenges, constraints and opportunities
