Completed Works

The pump track and gathering space at Richards Reserve have now been completed and all works are now finished under the Richards Reserve Development Plan.

Council together with a local Friends group have also undertaken further clean up and planting in the rock embankment by the underpass to the velodrome.

Final concept plan for public space area

We've reviewed your feedback on the revised concept plan, and used it to develop the final concept plan, which is shown below.

Differences between the revised plan and the final plan

  • As it is in close proximity to this gathering space area, we will be converting the clubroom toilet to be an accessible public toilet, so have repositioned a picnic setting with a shelter in this location, in place of the proposed toilet.
  • Additional concrete paving is currently being installed around this existing toilet to ensure this is facility is more accessible.
  • Additional nature-based play elements have also been included, to provide further interest for younger children.
