Stage 2 Community Engagement

The three concept plans

The Mount Pleasant Bowling Club will be moving to a new integrated community facility at Tompkins Park, Alfred Cove (please refer to a full report to Council’s Ordinary Meeting 20 June 2017 for more information). The site will become vacant when the bowling club moves.

Council supported the concept of redeveloping the Mount Pleasant Bowling Club site (in principle) at a Special Meeting held on 28 November 2016 and engaging with the community on the future of the site.

Three draft concept plans have been prepared and were informed by your feedback collected in Stage 1 of the community engagement process. Stage 1 was conducted from 15 February to 13 March 2017. You can read a report on the feedback received from Stage 1 of the engagement here.

Now at Stage 2 of the community engagement, we invite you to view the three concept plans for the future redevelopment of the Mount Pleasant Bowling Club site below, and tell us what you think.

Stage 1 Community Engagement

Background

The City is beginning a process to plan the future of the Mount Pleasant Bowling Club site at 40 Bedford Road, Ardross when the Club moves to the new community hub at Tompkins Park in alignment with the City's Bowling Club Strategy.

Currently, the site belongs to the State Government and the City may have an option to purchase it when the Club moves to their new home. However, a good business case has to be established for that to happen and will need to have wide community support.

The idea is to create a new public park at 40 Bedford Road, which would be funded by a housing development on some of the site. Doing so would provide you with a new local park without adding to your council rates. The intent is that all revenue raised by a redevelopment will be used to fund new recreational and community infrastructure, such as:

  • a new public park on the site
  • local streetscape upgrades
  • upgrades to Shirley Strickland Reserve (only 600 metres away) and other public facilities

The park/housing concept is very general at the moment as this is only the first stage of the planning process and community engagement. There are no formal plans.

Extensive communication and consultation with the community will follow as the project unfolds.
