Information & FAQs
Council is prepared to consider BBQ facilities at this location in consultation with the local community should the majority of the community want this facility.
Council has a defined budget for the playground and the more additional facilities we install will have implications for the amount of play equipment we can afford.
No, this is a local community park, intended to service the immediate community. Council has a new Public Toilet Strategy and public toilets are not normally installed in local community parks. A new public toilet facility is planned for Homestead Run, which is a larger neighbourhood park, located within Seabrook https://participate.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/toilets.
Yes, built shade, furniture and drinking water will all be included in this play space design and upgrade.
Similar to the BBQ, Council has a defined budget for the play space, therefore additional facilities need to be considered in the context of the play equipment. This matter will be considered if it is a majority preference, and if it can be located within a suitable and safe location, so as not to disrupt the amenity of the resident immediately adjacent the parkland.
We invite the community to participate in:
- the design and upgrade of the local play space and new picnic area for Pipeline Reserve,
- with an emphasis on a safe and fenced/gated play and picnic zone that can be used by local families with children with autism spectrum disorder.
Listed as a high priority in the Open Space Strategy implementation plan and subject of three years of Pitch Your Project Community submissions, this project has been listed in Council’s 5-year capital works program and the Reserve is now due for full upgrade.
The feedback will not enable the development of district or regional level play equipment, any specific sports infrastructure, public toilets. These facilities and spaces are accommodated via Council’s Sports Facilities Program, Toilet Strategy and Playground Strategy.
The focus and budget for the project is to cater for local families in the immediate area of Seabrook and children between the age range of toddlers to 10-year-olds in particular.
We have organised a post card mailout to all Seabrook residents with an invitation to participate in an online survey and a drop-in session within the park to discuss and fine tune the concept plan.
The feedback on the final concept plan will be used to prepare for detailed design and capital works project management.
The revised concept will be amended and submitted as the final plan once engagement feedback has been received.
