Bain Park Master Plan

Bain Park is a significant recreational space located in the centre of Wauchope’s CBD.  Council will be embarking on a series of comprehensive community engagement activities in order to prepare a Master Plan to guide future development.

Widespread community engagement and participation is vital to ensure all members of the community have the opportunity to have their say and provide feedback on the development of the plan.

Bain Park is a significant recreational space located in the centre of Wauchope’s CBD. Council will be embarking on a series of comprehensive community engagement activities in order to prepare a Master Plan to guide future development of this space.

The Bain Park Master Plan project has been identified in the 2019/2020 Operational Plan as part of Council’s regional master planning for recreational facilities to encourage a healthy, inclusive and vibrant community. The creation of a Master Plan for Bain Park will allow Council to create a future design for the space that reflects the community’s current and future needs.

The Master Plan will provide a strategic direction for the allocation of Council funds into the future, as well as allowing increased opportunities to attract grant funding. The Master Plan will aim to accommodate a wide range of future community events, including events, performances, movie screenings, expos, etc. whilst also factoring in the adjacent community facilities that have a strong connection to the park and the CBD.

The Master Plan will be utilised to inform the Bain Park Plan of Management, which is to be developed later in the financial year.

Widespread community engagement and participation is vital to ensure all members of the community have the opportunity to have their say and provide input into the development of the Plan.

Use the Survey & Registration tab below to tell us what you would like to see for the future of Bain Park and register to attend the Community Workshop on 19 October 2019 where we will start developing the Master Plan.

Registrations for the Community Workshop close on 14 October 2019.

The Master Plan Survey closes 31 October 2019.

Let's work together to create a great space!
