Moorabool Shire Open Space Strategy

Project Overview

Have your say on the future of our parks, playgrounds and open spaces!

Moorabool Shire Council has engaged @leisure Planners to prepare an Open Space Strategy. This strategy will provide clear directions about improving open space planning,management and priorities for development across the Shire, especially new residential developments.

Community Feedback Review

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Council is currently in the process of reviewing received feedback to date and will seek further community input in the coming weeks.

Have Your Say

Council is seeking input from residents and community groups into this strategy. We would like to know:

  • Which public open spaces residents use most and why?
  • Which suburbs need more or different types of open space?
  • What are the priority types of improvements to parks, reserves, especially around Bacchus Marsh, Darley and Ballan?
  • In new residential areas what types of open space would benefit the broadest range of the community? 

A range of community organisations will be interviewed for this project.

Key outputs of the strategy will include: 

  • A consistent open space planning policy and decision-making framework 
  • Standards for provision and access to open space 
  • Identifying gaps in the provision of open space  
  • A Council policy position on specific issues such as open space provision in new residential areas, buffers along waterways and bio links, play spaces, climate change adaptation and open space on sites with site constraints such as slopes and easements.
