About the Project

We’re asking you to help us with what the future of Graydens Reserve could look like!

Graydens Reserve is a much-loved community space in Newhaven and we’re planning for future upgrades of the area but we want to hear your thoughts on what it could look like.

Late last year we asked for expressions of interest to make up a panel of community members who have a connection to the Reserve to help us co-design the community engagement for Graydens Reserve. This panel of 18 community members met in February this year and spoke about the uses of the Reserve. We heard that it is a popular place for birthday parties, gatherings for families and friends, a stop-off on the way home from school and to and from the Island.

Planning for the future we also need to take into account that part of current area of the Reserve is owned by Regional Roads Victoria and will be used for a roundabout in coming years.

How to provide your feedback:

  • Answer the grown ups or childrens survey below and we ask that you vote for three of your favourite playspace elements and two skate elements OR
  • Come to an information session on Tuesday 28 May and chat to one of our staff OR
  • Send your feedback to Council via email at basscoast@basscoast.vic.gov.au, drop in to one of our Customer Service Offices or post to Bass Coast Shire Council, 76 McBride Avenue, Wonthaggi 3995.

Next steps

We will review all the feedback then invite community to check out the draft designs to make sure we got the mix right.
