Killalea Reserve Enhancement Project

Community Engagement Overview

Objective Engagement Process

In December 2019, Reflections initiated discussions with RPS Group to assist with the Killalea Reserve Enhancement Project.

RPS is a consultancy with specific expertise in community engagement and will lead the process over the next six months.

What are we consulting on?

The consultation program has been designed to capture community feedback on the following:

  • Locations and design aspects of a multifunction community facility with the potential for a restaurant/cafe, outdoor deck and natural amphitheatre for events and cultural activities
  • Location of 15 environmentally sustainable eco-cabins
  • Upgrade of power,water and sewer infrastructure
  • Guided walking trails featuring a nature-play playground and outdoor fitness stations.

More effective consultation

Due to the holiday period and the unprecedented bushfires, the decision was made to postpone the community engagement program until February/March 2020. This decision will enable more people to participate and provide feedback on the Killalea Reserve enhancement project.

We are listening!

We know Killalea Reserve is a special place for locals and visitors and we want to ensure the Killalea Reserve enhancement project best reflects the needs of the community. We're seeking input into what you enjoy and value at Killalea Reserve. We're interested to know how you use the existing facilities and your suggestions on what improvements could be made. Your views will assist us in making sure the enhancements to Killalea Reserve provide as many benefits to the local community andvisitors.

Your initial feedback willhelp us shape the next stage of the consultation involving the proposed location and upgrade of new and existing facilities.to the map of Killalea Reservewhich indicates the investigation area where the proposed new facilities could be located.
