Provide your ideas for the new Open Space Strategy

  • We invite you to provide input to help us draft a new Open Space Strategy for Cardinia Shire. You can do this by completing the online survey or coming to a drop-in session.
  • Feedback closes Sunday 1 December 2019, 5pm. 

In Cardinia Shire, open spaces include:

  • sport and active recreation reserves
  • nature reserves
  • parks and playground spaces
  • urban plaza spaces.

It will shape the strategic direction for Cardinia Shire’s open spaces over the next 10 years. It will look at existing open spaces across the shire and identify future needs.

Please give us your thoughts and ideas about open spaces, to help us develop a comprehensive plan that reflects the community’s priorities, desires and aspirations. We hope this leads to more people in the community enjoying and getting benefit from the shire’s open spaces.
