Why are we undertaking this master plan?
Council is undertaking a master planning process to improve the landscape character, usability and facilities within the Robert Barrett Reserve to cater to the growing population of Maribyrnong and attract greater visitation to the area.
What is the purpose of the survey?
The purpose of the survey is to obtain feedback from people who know Robert Barrett Reserve best – local traders, workers, residents, and visitors to find out what should be retained, improved, or changed.
Results from the community survey will support Council’s evidence-based research and analysis to provide a more complete picture of the existing conditions, opportunities and constraints. This increased understanding is crucial to ensuring planning objectives in the future draft Master Plan achieve the best outcomes for the Activity Centre and the community.
What happens next?
A Council report summarising key results from the consultation will be prepared, submitted to Council and made publicly available.
Following this, a Draft Concept Plan will be prepared. The community will be consulted on the draft plan. Further information on planned consultation and engagement activities will be posted online in the second half of 2020.
