A master plan has been developed and approved by Council for Kings Reserve in order to provide a long-term overarching vision for the precinct.
The plan recognises the existing qualities of the entire site, but also seeks to consolidate existing facilities and upgrade or provide new appropriate facilities based on existing and future use.
Kings Reserve is one element of a larger, multi-faceted precinct at Torrensville and as such the master plan seeks to ensure the provision of a sustainable, high-value, high-quality public reserve that reflects community expectations and Council’s designation of the main project site as part of a precinct-scale reserve.
A draft master plan was presented to the community and stakeholders for consultation during 2017 and as a result more than 150 opinions were collected. The master plan document was then refined to incorporate the feedback received and this has now been endorsed by Council for implementation.
Implementation of all elements of the plan will take place during the next 10 years. Stage 1 has begun with the completion of the wetland and water harvesting. The upgrade to the Torrensville Bowling Club has been completed and is now in use. The new playground and upgrade of the skate park is expected to begin in 2020.
It is important to note that there are elements outside the scope of the project site included in the master plan that will be subject to future funding.
