Coun­cil tests the waters

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE City of Bel­mont has started a broad con­sul­ta­tion process as it de­vel­ops a new master plan for the Bel­mont Oa­sis Leisure Cen­tre.

Bel­mont Mayor Phil Marks said the plan would as­sist with the de­liv­ery of leisure and aquatic in­fra­struc­ture and ser­vices into the fu­ture. The City is con­sult­ing the wider com­mu­nity, cur­rent cen­tre mem­bers and cus­tomers and in­dus­try stake­hold­ers such as the Royal Life Sav­ing So­ci­ety, Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation, and Swim­ming WA.

“The process will re­sult in a num­ber of con­cept de­signs that cap­ture the pri­or­i­ties of the com­mu­nity and users of the Bel­mont Oa­sis Leisure Cen­tre,” Cr Marks said.

He said iden­ti­fy­ing and un­der­stand­ing the core needs and as­pi­ra­tions of stake­hold­ers and the com­mu­nity in gen­eral would be key out­comes from the con­sul­ta­tion process.

“Al­though the City is con­sult­ing di­rectly with stake­hold­ers, the wider com­mu­nity will have var­i­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties to pro­vide feed­back via an on­line sur­vey, con­sul­ta­tion at com­mu­nity events, work­shops and in­for­ma­tion ses­sions at var­i­ous venues,” Cr Marks said. Sur­veys are open for feed­back at con­nect.bel­ un­til Oc­to­ber 2.
