FINAL OUTCOMES & NEXT STEPS

The report for the community consultation outcomes and draft masterplan were presented to the Asset Management Committee on Monday 15 November 2021 and endorsed by Council on Monday 22 November, 2022.

A summary of the key features of the draft masterplan were as follows:

  • Possible future community garden space at Brompton Green Reserve (further investigation required).
  • Planting of more trees and vegetation at Josiah Mitton Reserve.
  • Nature play/BMX area at Josiah Mitton Reserve.
  • New BBQ’s/shelters and improved lighting.
  • More art/colour/signage and spaces for future events at Josiah Mitton Reserve.
  • Improved play and fitness equipment at Josiah Mitton Reserve.

The full report is available for viewing on Council’s website via the link below:

Now that the community has assisted in the development of the draft masterplan (image below), there are additional steps to take prior to a final masterplan being completed.

Next Steps by Council for the next two financial years:

  • Undertake formal community consultation in accordance with our Public Consultation Policy on the draft Masterplan – 2022/23
  • Detailed design of the masterplan following consultation outcomes – 2022/23
  • Endorse final masterplan and detailed designs, and seek funding to construct in 2023/24

Project Background

Josiah Mitton Reserve is located in Brompton and is also in close proximity to Brompton Green Reserve. Both reserves are important ‘district’ spaces, providing walking and cycling connections, and a variety of experiences including play, fitness, picnics, half-court basketball, ball games and areas for dog exercise. Josiah Mitton Reserve is also home to the decommissioned Hindmarsh Incinerator, which is a State Heritage listed building located on the southern edge of the reserve. The reserve is listed as a Neighbourhood Park under the reserve hierarchy as defined by the Open Space Strategy.

We have allocated funding to undertake a Masterplan design for Josiah Mitton Reserve in the 2021/22 financial year to inform improvements at the reserve should future funding be allocated. The masterplan will also consider future opportunities at Brompton Green Reserve.

JPE Design Studio are undertaking this project on Council’s behalf and together we would like to understand how you currently use the reserves and what activities and ideas you may have for them in the future.

We also want to hear your thoughts on what experiences make up a fun and memorable trip to the park so we can get the design right for all users.
