“Your input and feedback will help us to deliver on your vision for open spaces in the MidCoast,” said Council’s Director of Liveable Communities, Paul De Szell.

“The Open Space and Recreation Strategy will guide future planning and funding decisions, including applications for external funding.”

During 2022 over 1,600 people took part in pop-ups, workshops and online activities. Participants provided input on their current use of open space and future outdoor space needs.

“Both locals and visitors said they want better connected green space, more accessible footpaths and cycleways, more flexible open space, and more activities for young children and teenagers.

“People told us that they value our outdoor lifestyle and want to encourage people with a range of abilities and ages to interact with each other, safely and affordably,” added Mr De Szell

The public exhibition period runs until Tuesday 27 June.
