Council has appointed Jensen Planning and Design to develop draft masterplans for recreation and sporting precincts in the next step of the Southern Barossa Recreation and Sporting Hub project.
The project is in response to demand for recreation, sporting and community facilities in the south, and will also identify economic opportunities around tourism development.
Council has prepared a draft feasibility study which will inform the development of masterplans for Queen Victoria Jubilee Park, Lyndoch Recreation Park and Curdnatta Park, plus a greenfield site.
Jensen will engage with key stakeholders to draft the plans, and the wider community will also have a second opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed options, following the first round of community consultation in October 2015.
The project will assess various approaches to deliver the best outcomes for sporting and community groups facing the challenges of rapid growth, small sporting grounds and ageing recreation and sport facilities.
