    The Draft Open Space Strategy is Hobsons Bay City Council’s key strategic document that will guide the provision, protection, planning, design and management of open space in Hobsons Bay. This strategy will provide a framework for Council to set priorities and make decisions on the maintenance, upgrade and development of both existing open space and new spaces or facilities, which cater for the current and future needs of the Hobsons Bay community.

    The Draft Open Space Strategy incorporates an assessment of the key open spaces across the municipality and includes, but is not limited to, sports fields, pitches, courts and associated infrastructure, sports club pavilions, indoor stadiums, parks for families and social recreation spaces, playgrounds, shared trails, foreshore spaces, conservation and heritage parks.

    This strategy will guide the development of open space in Hobsons Bay for the next ten years and inform Council’s capital works program.

    Through the development of the Draft Open Space Strategy, Council has undertaken extensive community consultation. At its inception a community survey received over 950 responses and these comments are reflected in the Draft Open Space Strategy.

    The Draft Open Space Strategy reflects the needs of the Hobsons Bay community, as identified in the Hobsons Bay 2030 Community Vision and the 2017-2021 Council Plan.

    The public exhibition period on the Draft Open Space Strategy will run until 5pm on Friday 23 February. During that time there will be a number of community drop in sessions which will give you the opportunity to speak to Council officers to discuss the strategy.
