Yaluma Drive Public Reserve Footpath

Consultation has concluded

Council has received a request to build a footpath through Yaluma Drive reserve to form part of a broader footpath and cycleway network for the Crestwood locality for the purpose of providing an essential link within the Crestwood precinct and its surrounds. Part of this broader network will also include a proposed local park at the south western corner of the estate and a public link to a segment of the Googik track.

The proposal includes to upgrade the reserve to retain and replenish a stand of Eucalypts and establish an easily maintained reserve for the future. The Yaluma Drive edge will be more defined and retained with rock walls, drainage swales and stair access.

Retaining the current stand of Eucalypts along the ridgeline will serve multiple purposes including maintaining our fauna habitat (including koalas), creating a strong, natural visual element from surrounding suburbs, and providing some screening to create privacy for surrounding residences.

Upgrading Yaluma Drive reserve will create a more useable and accessible space that can be enjoyed by the whole community. This will include stair access, pathway linkage to surrounding streets, viewing seats and areas of maintained open grass for more active play.

Writing a submission is one way of providing your view and opinion to Council. If you would like to make comment on this proposal, make a submission in writing using the form below or email or write to Council at
