Knox Regional Netball Centre and H.V. Jones Reserve Masterplans

Creating better parks

Knox City Council is preparing two masterplans to improve the Knox Regional Netball Centre and H.V. Jones Reserve in Ferntree Gully.

Your feedback is important to us and will help us plan for the future and ensure that both sites meet the community’s needs.

What is a masterplan?

The purpose of a masterplan is to guide any future management, development and upgrade of the reserves as needs arise and/or when funding is available.

Council prepares masterplans by conducting community consultations, a site analysis of surrounding land uses and background research on the history and future usage of the sites.

What is involved?

The first phase of the project will be the preparation of a feasibility study relating to the Knox Regional Netball Centre. The study will help Council determine the current needs and future direction for the facility.

The development of the feasibility study will inform the masterplans. Subsequent works include consultation, development of issues and opportunities to be considered in the master planning for the site.

Have your say now!

Your feedback is important and will be used to ensure that both masterplans meet the community’s needs. You can have your say by either:
