Have your say: Draft concept plan Bonette Reserve, Beaconsfield

Published: 31 October 2022

Cardinia Shire Council invites community feedback on a draft concept plan for Bonette Reserve, Beaconsfield.

Council has developed a draft concept plan to guide landscape improvements to the reserve.

Bonette Reserve is located at the corner of Woods Street and Old Princes Highway in Beaconsfield and includes the Beaconsfield War Memorial.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Jeff Springfield said Council was keen to incorporate the community’s ideas into the final concept plans.

Beacon Hills Ward Councillor Brett Owen said the reserve holds a special place in the heart of the community and the Beaconsfield township.

“We want to ensure the reserve plans sensitively consider the heritage context of the site,” Cr Owen said.

“We also want to look to create a distinctive public space that offers a place of reflection and ceremony, develop a strong connection to Bob Burgess Reserve and Cardinia Creek, and provide access for all abilities and members of our community.

“This is your chance to share your ideas about the future of the reserve through the development of the concept design. We look forward to seeing lots of members of the local Beaconsfield community at a drop-in session – or pop online to provide your comments or fill out a survey,” said Cr Owen.

The draft concept plan outlines improvements to the reserve including provision of accessible parking bay, seating, paths, paving, planting, lighting as well as maintaining existing significant trees and improving accessibility and safety.

Community input will help inform the development of the final concept plan.

Community consultation closes Friday 25 November 2022.
