New Signage in Colonel Light Gardens

Have Your Say on New Signage in Colonel Light Gardens

Council is inviting feedback from the community on a proposed new signage system for parks, reserves and community buildings in the State Heritage Area of Colonel Light Gardens by 5 pm Thursday 22 December 2016. 

A new signage system has been developed, guided by the Conservation Management Plan for Colonel Light Gardens, in response to: 

  • changes brought about by recent developments in strategy and the delivery of projects
  • the need for improved legibility, accessibility, coherence and consistency of signage
  • the need for clear messages relating to the use of parks including safety information
  • the need to improve design quality and the visitor’s experience
  • the need to improve efficiencies in managing signage resources. 

It is anticipated this signage system will be adapted and integrated into future city-wide approach to signage. 

New signage would be introduced as existing signs need to be replaced, unless prioritised by Council through the budget process. Given the pressing requirement for updated dog management signage at Mortlock Park it is likely that new signage would be progressed at Mortlock Park initially. 

An example of the ‘Information Sign’ from the signage system has been placed at the northern end of Mortlock Park between the Scout Hall and Colonel Light Gardens Primary School. Information shown on this sign reflects current sports, facilities and regulatory controls at the Park. We encourage you to have a look at the sign at Mortlock Park and to help us by providing your written feedback to the following questions: 

  1. Do you support Council’s proposal to create a consistent and high-quality signage system for parks, reserves and community buildings in Colonel Light Gardens?
  2. Have all necessary types of signs have been covered?
  3. Do you have any other feedback that you think is relevant to this project?
