Inverell Public Open Space Strategy
The Public Open Space Strategy was formally adopted on 20 December 2017 at the Ordinary Meeting of Council.
Council, in acknowledging the value that parks and reserves contribute to a positive lifestyle for its current and future residents, resolved to prepare a Public Open Space Strategy.
The Inverell Public Open Space Strategy includes:
- Identification and confirmation of Council owned and managed public open space;
- Classification of the existing public open space network;
- Identification of current uses and infrastructure; and
- Recommendations for future open space planning and management.
The Public Open Space Strategy will provide Council with an overarching framework to direct public open space planning and management in a coordinated, sustainable and effective manner. It will also assist the community in understanding the current intentions, and in some cases, what the future intentions are for parks and reserves in Inverell.
A principle role of public open space is to support health, recreation and leisure functions of the community. This includes active pursuits, such as organised sports, exercise, children’s play, and social activities; yet also encompasses passive uses such as quiet reflection in an attractive setting.
It is also reported that open spaces and sports activities attract investment, support local businesses and provide spaces for major events which attract tourists and visitors and boosts local economies.
Any enquiries relating to the strategy and its application can be directed to Council’s Civil and Environmental Services division on (02) 6728 8200.
