This project was to provide Bass Coast Shire with a Playspace Strategy to guide the planning, design, implementation and management of its public playspaces and fitness equipment across larger townships and smaller independent communities. The project involved consultation with the council and and innovative engagement with the local community. The challenges were dealing with the massive summer holiday demand on facilities in some coastal locations alongside the need to maintain higher standards across the municipality whilst planning for new playspaces in growth areas.
Key outcomes of the strategy are to provide guidance to plan for more variety and better quality facilities into the future and to continue to improve inclusion, access, amenity and landscaping at all sites.
This project was completed in early 2017.
