‘Play space’ strategy online soon

Central Coast Mayor, Lisa Matthews

The Central Coast Play space Strategy should be online soon for a 28-day public exhibition period.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the strategy would set a clear direction for planning new and upgrading existing play spaces.

“Play spaces are important to our community and Council seeks to balance smaller neighbourhood local parks and larger recreational multi-use open spaces.

“Underpinning this draft strategy is the desire to create and build high quality inclusive play spaces which contribute to active lifestyles, support social engagement, are creative, enjoyable, appropriately sited, equitably distributed and sustainably managed,” she said.

The draft play space strategy also articulates the 20-year renewal program based on life expectancy of equipment and meeting current Australian Standards.
