Draft Maddingley Park Master Plan Exhibition

Project Overview

Following previous community consultation, the Draft Maddingley Park Master Plan is now available for review.

Please let us know what you like or don’t like about the draft master plan for the park.

What is the project?

The master plan for Maddingley Park will provide a vision and strategic direction for future development and investment at the Park. The master plan will provide rationale for the recommendations made based off a needs assessment at the reserve to provide justification for future developments. The master plan should consider the current usage of the site and explore future active and passive recreation opportunities that will consider and respond to the demographic changes set to face the broader Bacchus Marsh district.

Why is the project occurring?

The Moorabool Shire Council is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of residents through increased participation in physical activity. A key strategy to achieve this is to provide quality sport and active recreation and leisure facilities to support increased participation opportunities. The master plan will also ensure that any change can be appropriately managed to ensure the preservation of significant heritage values.

When is the project occurring?

The project commenced in early March 2022 and is proposed to be completed by late 2022.

Where is the project occurring?

Maddingley Park is located on land owned by Council, and partly DELWP, and is currently managed directly by Council.
