Fredrick St Reserve Working Group Expression of Interest
Council is focussed on shaping a healthy community with access to more recreational choices in safe and welcoming environments. We want our community to enjoy programs and recreational spaces that are inclusive, thriving and energetic, with high quality facilities, services and equipment.
In 2017 Council adopted the Fredrick St Reserve Master Plan in the broader context of the Open Space, Sport and Recreation Plan 2017-2027. Since the adoption and subsequent implementation of many of the recommendations of the 2017 Master Plan, the use of the site has evolved and the needs and expectations of user groups has also changed.
The Reserve, bounded by Fredrick Street and Lowe Street, is one of the largest green spaces serving the Wynyard Township. It consists of five main use areas with various community and sporting groups using one or more of the spaces on a regular or seasonal basis.
Council considers it appropriate to revise and update the 2017 Master Plan in order to accurately reflect the importance of this site as a key recreational facility for the community, to better reflect the current usage and ensure the reserve facilities are fit for purpose now and into the future.
Working Group Expressions of Interest
Council invites community members, clubs and organisations to have their say and provide input into the future use of Frederick Street Reserve.
Expressions of Interest are now open for current and potential future users of the Reserve, along with any interested community members, to form the Frederick Street Reserve Working Group. This collaborative partnership between Council and the community will help ensure the continued delivery of recreation spaces that are inclusive, thriving and give the community access to quality facilities and services they require.
The Frederick Street Reserve Working Group will have a minimum of eight members, comprising of Councillor representatives, community members and council staff.
Community representatives must live, work or have an active interest in the municipal area. Ideally, community representation will include at least one young person and at least one person with links to the indigenous community. Members will be in term for a maximum term of two years.
