    Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Maylands Waterland community engagement project so far.

    After a series of workshops with the community, the City used the community benefits identified to prepare two draft concept designs. Details of these two concepts can be found on the Maylands Waterland page and in the document library. The community were asked to complete a survey indicating their preferred concept. The survey has now closed and the responses are being analysed. Watch this space for further information.

  • 2016/17 Playground Replacement - Community Consultation Outcomes

    2 months ago

    Every two years the City commissions an independent audit of its playgrounds to update and review a 15 year playground asset replacement plan.

The audit advises if playgrounds meet the required Australian Standards and provides a schedule of recommended playground upgrades and replacements based on age, condition and compliance to current standards.

    The City provides over 100 playgrounds across the Bayswater with the majority catering for the local community living within 400m of the reserve. Local playgrounds are traditionally small play areas with natural shade (where possible), sand or mulch soft fall and play elements. These vary between natural elements i.e. logs and rocks or more traditional play i.e. swings and slides or a variety of both.

    The City has completed the community consultations stage for the nine playgrounds scheduled for replacement during the 2016/17 financial year.

    Thank you to all 69 participants who took part in the consultations, the City values your input. It is anticipated that construction for all playgrounds will be concluded by June 2017.

    For any further queries please contact David Bruce-Recreation Services Coordinator on 9272 0612.
