Help shape Cardinia Shire’s Open Space Strategy

Published: 21 October 2019

Cardinia Shire Council is inviting community members to assist in the creation of a new Open Space Strategy for Cardinia Shire.

The strategy will analyse the existing provision of open spaces across the shire, identify gaps and provide the strategic direction for the shire’s open spaces over the coming decade.

‘Open spaces’ include sport and active recreation reserves, nature reserves, parks and playground spaces, wetlands, trails and urban plaza spaces.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Graeme Moore encouraged all residents to provide input in to the development of the strategy to help Council develop a comprehensive plan that appropriately reflects the community’s preferences.

“Our new Open Space Strategy will be the key piece of strategic work that will shape Cardinia Shire’s open spaces for the next 10 years,” Cr Moore said.

“This is your opportunity to assist in shaping the future of open space in your community.  We want this strategy to reflect the desires and aspirations of the community, and in turn, lead to more people enjoying our brilliant open spaces.”

Residents are invited to have their say on Council’s Open Space Strategy by visiting

Council will also be conducting an extensive range of drop-in sessions throughout October and November 2019 for residents to contribute their thoughts and ideas for the strategy in person. For dates, times and locations of these sessions, please visit

Alternatively, feedback can be emailed to or posted to: Open Space Strategy Consultation, Cardinia Shire Council, PO Box 7, Pakenham VIC 3810.

Consultation closes 5pm, Sunday 1 December 2019.
