Proposed relocation of St Andrews Way Reserve Playground Equipment to Birkdale Reserve

The playground at St Andrews Way Reserve is due for renewal as part of the 2020/21 Financial Year Asset Renewal program.

Council has identified the opportunity to relocate this playground equipment from St Andrews Way Reserve to Birkdale Reserve, which is also located on St Andrews Way, approximately 200 metres further north. The primary reasons for this proposal are that Birkdale Reserve is approximately 200m2 larger than St Andrews Way Reserve, and potentially offers better access for the broader community. Please refer to the reserve map location in the document library.

We are now seeking feedback from residents located in the areas of both reserves, as to whether or not this is a feasible project for Council to pursue. Staff will also be holding an on-site information session on Monday 15 April, 2019 from 4.00pm to 6.00pm at Birkdale Reserve.

It is important to note that Council has limited funding for a new playground at only one of the two sites however, should Council approve the relocation of the playground to Birkdale Reserve, additional funding will be sought for items such as irrigation, landscaping and park furniture at this reserve.

If the playground is relocated to Birkdale Reserve, the site of the playground at St Andrews Way Reserve will be returned to a turfed area, however if the community feedback does not support the proposed relocation, the playground at St Andrews Way Reserve will be renewed in 2020/21 and no upgrade works are proposed to be undertaken at Birkdale Reserve.

The results of this consultation will be reported to Council to provide them with details to make an informed decision relating to the reserves, a further letter will be sent to residents advising them of the report.

Staff are currently reviewing the community feedback received and a report to Council will be presented following the review. Participants of the consultation will be advised of the report.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation.
