Master Plan – March 2018

Council is working with the Berry Community and Rotary to create a beautiful nature based play area on North St.

On March 25th between 10am and 12pm at the Berry District Sports Fields on North St, Council is hosting a consultation for children ages 0-18.  There will be refreshments (coffee and snags) provided.

See flyer here >> Children’s Consultation Day

Once this consultation is over, Council will complete the detail design process, exhibit the design and launch construction.

The park design will be nature based, all access and community driven.

 

BACKGROUND
The Park will be a core piece of infrastructure that will play a strategic role for both the town and visitors following completion of the Berry Bypass.

A Master Plan, prepared by the District Park Review Group (DPRG), a joint initiative of the Forum and Council chaired by James Robinson and Clr Wells,  was collaboratively developed by key stakeholders and users of the Park through a workshop process.

The Berry Forum meeting on June 8 2017 endorsed the recommendation that the Master Plan be put to Council, where it was adopted.
