Council Review of Parks and Reserves in Colonel Light Gardens 

The suburb of Colonel Light Gardens is home to a number of council-owned parks and reserves, each of which is subject to a ‘Community Land Management Plan’ to guide future use and development. 

On August 2012 resolution of Council endorsed the commencement of a 3-step review process for matters relating to community land in Colonel Light Gardens. Step 1 of this process is well underway and involves the following parks and reserves:

  • Hillview Reserve
  • Mortlock Park
  • Pembroke Place Reserve
  • Reade Park
  • Rochester Avenue Reserve 

Community consultation for Step 1 was carried out between February and April 2013. More than 600 written and verbal submissions were received during the consultation period, which included a public hearing held on 16 April 2013.

These written and verbal submissions have furnished Council with a better understanding of the community’s needs and wants in relation to these parks and reserves.

A number of reports have since been prepared to progress the review of community land in Colonel Light Gardens. This webpage will be updated regularly to provide links to relevant reports and documentation associated with this review as it progresses.
