We are seeking feedback on a draft landscape plan and a name for the new park at the old Redcliffs School site.
Project status: Report available
Open for feedback: 19th November 2018 - 17th December 2018
Consultation has closed
Staff are currently preparing a report for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to consider in February / March 2019. Submitters will be notified once the report is ready and a link to the report and all submissions will be made available here.
The Ministry of Education (MoE) is currently rebuilding Redcliffs School on the old Redcliffs Park site. The old school land is controlled and managed by the Council, as a recreation reserve and buildings are currently being demolished. Following the sale of land to the MoE, $1.2million is available to develop a new park. The area is slightly smaller than the former Redcliffs Park (by 643m²) but there is room to replace all the facilities of the former park. The existing playground, furniture, car park and a community building will be kept. A junior and intermediate football field, toilet, drinking fountain, additional furniture and new signage will be constructed. A new perimeter path is also proposed. The climbing net from the old park will be relocated to the existing play area.
What happens next?
Once consultation has closed, the project team will analyse the feedback and produce a staﬀ report which will go to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board for approval. At this stage we are expecting that a decision will be made in February 2019.
