Join the Camp Reserve Community Consultation Committee

Council is inviting Expressions of Interest from community members to join the newly created Camp Reserve Community Consultation Committee (CRCCC) to support the design and development of the new pavillion and courts at Camp Reserve.

Camp Reserve is the shire's premier sporting reserve. It accommodates a range of sporting and community uses including football, netball, cricket, table tennis and other events.

In September 2020, Council adopted a master plan for the reserve which provides a future direction for the improvement of facilities at the reserve.

The major recommendations from the master plan are the development of a new multi-use community pavillion (western side of the oval) and the addition of a netball and multi-purpose court.

About the Committee

The CRCCC will also provide feedback to Council on draft plans and advice to Council with coordinating consultation with the broader community during the design process of the pavilion and courts at Camp Reserve.
