Stage 1 - Gather information
Waverley Council are planning to improve the safety and play experience in Clarke Reserve. Before we do this, we would like to hear from you to ensure that we make improvements that you want and need.
Why is Council looking to improve Clarke Reserve?
In response to the Clarke Reserve Council motion passed in July 2018 (CM/7.11/18.07 - see the Document Library for meeting minutes), it was decided that Council is required to develop a landscape plan, and consult with the community (in particular the DiamondBay/Vaucluse Precinct) on the proposed improvements to the reserve.
The changes required by Council include:
- Install additional planting, edging and the supply and installation of a garden barrier around the section of playground fronting pedestrian footpaths
- Install a new children’s slippery dip incorporated into an expanded playground area
- Re-locate the existing plantings from large sections of the area overlooking the ocean adjacent to the coastal fencing on the western side, and remove the larger trees that have grown alongside.
- Install permanent signage, including footpath-stencilled signs, that identifies Clarke Reserve as a 24/7 dog on-leash area, and that dogs are prohibited from being within 10 metres of any play equipment
How can I have my say?
You can complete the survey via the link below before 21 October 2018 or come along to our Have Your Say Day on Saturday 6 October 2018, at Clarke Reserve from 9am - 12pm to find out more about the proposed improvements, speak to Council Officers and Have Your Say. Your feedback will help ensure we make upgrades that the community wants and needs.
