Council officers engaged with the local community in the development of the draft Springvale Reserve Master Plan.
This included community and stakeholder consultation for a four-week period from Friday 21 April to Sunday 28 May 2023. Council has considered this feedback and revised the draft master plan.
The key changes to the revised draft master plan include:
- Relocation of the proposed car park extension in the north west section of the reserve to the area alongside the water tanks.
- New location of the playground to the area immediately west of the grass terrace and spectator shelters.
- Warm-up spaces included around the cricket nets for sport game days, which could potentially be used as overflow parking by the sport users should they need to prioritise parking over player facilities.
- Additional change room facilities and upgrade of the existing facilities for first aid, storage and umpires.
- Lighting, scoreboards and player boxes to be included to both netball courts.
- Designated pedestrian walking track around the perimeter of the oval.
- Fitness node and exercise precinct has shifted to the east side of the cricket nets to free up warm-up space for sports clubs.
Other inclusions are:
- Improvements to the rear of the spectators shelters to increase visual permeability and overall aesthetic for residents.
- Shed and storage included next to Council’s Storage for cricket covers.
- Removal of a portion of fence along the walkway between Newcomen Road and the netball courts to improve safety and to follow CEPTD best practice.
- Improve general pedestrian lighting to improve safety for key areas of the reserve.
- Breaks in the grass berm to the east of the oval to increase visual sight lines through to netball and exercise areas.
- Inclusion of feedback from school children and youth consultation into specific play elements.
- Increasing the number of new car parks to 50 proposed spaces, subject to detailed design.
