Council has now completed its review of the community feedback on the draft Lake Monger Activity Plan, with the final plan to be presented to Council in June.
Some elements of the plan have been amended to reflect community feedback but many aspects of the proposed plan received strong community support and have been included in the final plan.
Amendments have been made to the proposed promenade along the lake edge, which will now be a partial promenade including a grassed area along the southern lake edge on Lake Monger Drive. The inclusion of a permanent on site café will not be included at this stage but pop up food and beverage outlets will be available to assess the level of demand before committing to a permanent café facility. A formal music stage or shell will not be included in the final plan.
Further to these changes, the Town will undertake a more comprehensive study regarding pedestrian movements crossing Lake Monger Drive before it commits to any changes to the traffic and parking arrangements.
Council will also engage with local sporting clubs and groups to ascertain a comprehensive understanding of the future requirements before making major changes around the Lake Monger Recreation Club area and the northern Lake Monger area. Council has also decided further planning in the Lake Monger Recreation Club area is to include the potential for a men's shed.
Residents will be advised prior to the final plans submission to Council for endorsement in June.
