Mul­ti­mil­lion Dol­lar En­hance­ment An­nounced for Cam­bridge Re­serve

Kalamunda Reporter - - Special Report -

The City of Kala­munda has been work­ing with com­mu­nity and con­sul­tants to de­velop a draft Con­cept De­sign for the en­hance­ment of Cam­bridge Re­serve, For­rest­field. De­vel­op­ment of the de­sign is now com­plete and the City is ask­ing for your feed­back on the draft.

The mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar de­sign was de­vel­oped based on feed­back pro­vided by com­mu­nity dur­ing con­sul­ta­tion un­der­taken in early 2018. The City re­quested in­put from lo­cal res­i­dents and com­mu­nity mem­bers on their vi­sion, val­ues and ideas for the re­serve. Over 60 peo­ple of­fered con­tri­bu­tions via sur­veys, sub­mis­sions and at­tend­ing com­mu­nity work­shops.

Key fea­tures of the plan in­clude an en­closed dog ex­er­cise area, ac­tiv­ity hub, play­ground, half bas­ket­ball court, liv­ing stream, fenced and re-veg­e­tated bush­land, man­aged park­land as well as im­proved ameni­ties such as pedes­trian paths, seat­ing nodes, light­ing, bar­be­ques and more.

The cost of the up­grades will be off­set through the sale of sec­tions of the vast re­serve. The sal­able land is suit­able for res­i­den­tial, over 55’s and aged care de­vel­op­ment.

The pur­pose of the plan is to pro­vide an area that will con­nect the com­mu­nity, both young and old. The plan is avail­able for com­ment at en­gage.kala­munda.wa.gov.au un­til 14 Au­gust 2018.
