Master plans

As part of our commitment to upgrade aging infrastructure within Glen Eira’s parks and gardens, master plans have been developed for a number of parks.

The aim of park master plans is to take into consideration the upgrade, replacement or creation of new buildings, landscaping, playgrounds and other facilities for community use. This may include, but is not limited to, multipurpose sporting facilities, car parks, public conveniences, pathways, public lighting, barbecue and/picnic areas and other recreational facilities, which meet the current and future service requirements of the community.

Our master plans involve extensive community consultation and provide clear direction for the future development and management of Glen Eira’s parks.

Caulfield Park Draft Masterplan consultation

We are currently seeking community feedback on a refreshed Masterplan for Caulfield Park.

Caulfield Park is the most popular open space in Glen Eira. The Park has a unique mix of spaces that combines areas rich in botanical significance with active sporting areas. The refreshed Masterplan aims to ensure that Glen Eira remains amongst the most liveable, accessible, healthy and safest municipalities in the state.

The refresh process has reviewed actions implemented from the 2001 Masterplan, considered the Park in context of these changes and assessed the appropriateness of any outstanding actions. This process revealed a number of successes, opportunities and areas for improvement.

There are a number of ways to provide feedback, including Council’s Have Your Say forum online at www.haveyoursaygleneira.com.au/caulfieldparkrefresh or via email recservices@gleneira.vic.gov.au

The opportunity to provide feedback on the concepts is available until Sunday 2 December 2018. 

The Masterplan development has been guided by the following vision:

  • Continue to protect and enhance the existing landscape planting strategy across the Park, specifically the exotic and native planting to the western historic precinct and the native and indigenous planting to the eastern precinct.
  • Safeguard and enhance the 19th Century heritage and character of the western end of Caulfield Park.
  • Continue to allow for sporting facilities to evolve within the existing areas to accommodate growth and community needs.
  • Create engaging landscapes and infrastructure that promotes social cohesion, equality and accessibility to all members of the community.
  • Create spaces where a variety of activities can occur, a range of goals are addressed and different objectives can be pursued.
  • Continue to explore opportunities to improve sustainability, resilience and adaption to a changing climate.

The Masterplan refresh is an action from Council’s Open Space Strategy which recommends a major review of the existing Masterplan to address the contemporary issues associated with the design of the Park.
