Council is seeking public input into the future use of the Millicent parklands.
Council has begun the consultation process, engaging with students from local kindergartens, primary and secondary schools. Students participating in a Science Technology Engineering and Maths project have been asked come up with ideas for the use of the parklands on Ridge and North terraces.
Director Engineering Services, Peter Halton said: “The student's ideas are currently on display at the Millicent Gallery."
“Council plan to undertake broader community consultation on some of these concepts for consideration in future budgets.”
Council staff have recently completed remediation works to finalise the removal of the netball/tennis courts at the western end of the parklands on the corner of North Terrace and Williams Road.
The courts and associated fencing and light towers were removed and a significant amount of material carted in, levelling it for the establishment of a grassed area. A bore has been installed at the Croquet Club end of the park which services the new irrigation installed across the drain in the Domain and this will be used to provide above ground irrigation to the newly cleared area.
“The new grassed area will become a ‘blank canvas’ with which we can consult with key community groups on its ultimate use or purpose,” said Mr Halton
