Council invites community feedback on new-look Avoca playspace

Ross Park, Avoca

The playspace at Ross Park, Avoca, is set for a major revamp and Central Coast Council is inviting community feedback on designs for the new-look facility.

Council says the playspace has reached the end of its functional life and needs to be replaced.

“The district level playspace will offer a variety of active and dynamic play opportunities as well as sensory and creative play which incorporate natural play areas to align with the Central Coast Playspace Strategy,” Council’s website says.

“Some of the existing equipment, such as the climbing frame, spider net, fitness equipment and park furniture will be renovated and retained as part of the upgrade.”

Council has created an online survey, which closes at 5pm on August 30, where residents can outline what they would like to see in the new playspace.

Council will be using Local Infrastructure Contributions to fund the playspace with work slated to begin in March 2022, for completion in May, weather permitting.

Local infrastructure contributions (also referred to as development contributions) are charged by Council when new development occurs.

These contributions fund local infrastructure needed to support an increased number of residents in the area.

This type of local infrastructure typically includes local roads, stormwater and drainage, shared pathways, parks, playspaces or other recreational areas, environmental land and community facilities.

See Coluncil’s website for details on how to take part in the survey.
