The City in conjunction with SGL Consulting Group is developing a Master Plan in order to inform longer term facility and infrastructure developments within Morley Sport and Recreation Centre and Pat O'Hara Reserve.

About the project

In February 2017, Council resolved to support the development of a Master Plan for Pat O'Hara Reserve, including Morley Sport and Recreation Centre. The City appointed Tredwell Management to undertake a needs assessment in the first instance to consider stakeholder needs, particularly those of East Perth District Basketball Association and the Perth Bayswater Rugby Union Club.

The needs assessment report made a number of recommendations for future development, including a master plan to consider:

(i) Current use of Pat O'Hara Reserve by Perth Bayswater Rugby Union Club for sporting fixtures and training, as well as by the community for recreational activity; and

ii) Future use and design of surrounding buildings, including Morley Sport and Recreation Centre; carparking, landscaping and community space.

This report is available for download in the Document Library.

In June 2018 the City engaged SGL Consulting Group to complete the Master Plan, which is now underway.

How can I get involved?

Thanks to everyone who attended the drop-in sessions or completed a survey; your feedback is much appreciated!

Concept options have been developed and discussed with stakeholders; Council will consider these options in January.

Once a draft Master Plan is approved by Council for public comment, this will be available here on the project page for you to view so stay tuned!
