What we've heard and next steps
Thank you for your feedback on the Draft Open Space Priorities Plan.
Based on community feedback, the dog park area was considered to be the highest priority use of the created space, followed by urban forest, community sports space and flexible community space (least priority).
Canopy tree cover and a functional and connected shared user path were considered to be a high priority based upon individual comments.
81 per cent of the participants agree that the plan creates a series of destinations that are responsive to current and future community needs.
81 per cent of participants agree that the plan creates a legible and safe path for pedestrians and cyclists which link the public spaces.
We also heard the desire for:
- smaller structures within the precinct for cafes to increase activity and use
- a minimum 3-4m shared user path (SUP) to create a friendly space for riders and walkers
- tree canopy cover across the length of the SUP and to filter views of the rail structure and to provide a more enjoyable experience
- more sports courts in lieu of hardstand, and a rebound wall and greater connections across the corridor
- trees and the shared user path to be considered as a priority.
A report will be presented to Council on Monday 27 March summarising the findings of the consultation and providing a recommendation that will form the City of Kingston's final position to the Level Crossing Removal Authority.
Consultation has concluded
