Wingecarribee Shire Council is seeking comment from the community after Councillors unanimously endorsed the public exhibition of the draft Playspace Strategy.

The draft strategy has been produced to provide guidance around Council’s future provision, development and maintenance of its playgrounds.

Council’s Asset Coordinator Parks and Buildings Rachel Forte said the draft strategy assessed Council’s play areas across a range of criteria.

“At present Council manages 48 playspaces across the Shire,” she said.  “However, the majority of these are aging and some don’t provide a great deal of play value for children.”

“This draft strategy not only looks at what does and doesn’t work within our existing play spaces, but also provides guidance to ensure that future playspaces are made challenging, inclusive, safe and affordable.”

The draft strategy categorises all playspaces across four levels.

Copies of the draft Playspace Strategy can be viewed online at www.yoursaywingecarribee.com.au/play.

Feedback can be made online or in writing addressed to Wingecarribee Shire Council, PO Box 141 Moss Vale 2577 or alternatively by email at mail@wsc.nsw.gov.au.

The draft strategy will be on exhibition for a period of 28 days with submissions and feedback to close at 4:30pm on Friday 10 July 2020.

Following the close of the exhibition period, a final report considering feedback will be presented to Council.
