Proposal Background

Council has received a request from the community to construct a basketball half-court at Corcoran Reserve, Corcoran Drive, West Lakes, and we are now seeking your feedback on the proposal.

Corcoran Reserve is approximately 1.4 hectares in size and is a popular reserve for ‘unstructured’ recreation activities such as fitness, kicking a ball, socialising, dog exercise and providing access to the lake. Currently, there are no recreation facilities such as a playground or other courts located at the reserve.

Community Consultation

The proposed basketball half-court will be located centrally within the reserve and, subject to further design, will be approximately 10m x 10m with a concrete base, baketball ring and backboard. The half-court will also require paving an area of approximately 80m2 that is currently turf, and associated fencing to stop basketballs going into the lake or onto Corcoran Drive.

The closest basketball half-courts are located at West Lakes Shore Oval, approximately 850 metres away (or 1800 metres by car, walking or cycling) and Carnegie South Reserve, Royal Park, located approximately 1.4 km away.

Feedback received from the consultation will allow staff to determine resident and community sentiments on the proposal and plan for future directions within the reserve.

To provide your feedback on the proposal please complete the survey, the consultation will close on Thursday 7 January 2021.
