Open space is important to our daily lives for many reasons: providing us recreation, socialisation, play, contemplation, green infrastructure, enjoyment, and protection of our natural environments.
Wodonga Council is developing an open space strategy that builds on existing documents, provides definitive standards for development, is considerate of local community and stakeholder interests, and is appropriate to local environmental and climatic conditions.
The strategy will guide future planning, design, provision and management of open space in Wodonga over the next 15 years and will includes actions to address existing community open space and recreational needs, to anticipate and meet the open space requirements of the city's forecast population and changing leisure and recreational trends.
Following this consultation, a draft strategy will be prepared which will include an action plan prioritised over a 15-year timeframe, which is the proposed planning period of the strategy.
A process for monitoring progress will be established and the strategy reviewed at a suitable time to ensure it reflects changing planning and development context and circumstances.
Feedback will be considered in the development of a draft strategy which will come back to the community for an exhibition period for being adopted by the council.
Have your say
Four factsheets have been developed that provide background and context around developing an open space strategy.
There are five maps that show the following open spaces across the city.
An interactive map of the gaps has been developed and allows you provide feedback directly on the map and suggestions on open spaces across Wodonga.
You can provide feedback via the survey or the feedback form below or by writing to the council.
Our offices are closed due to the impacts of COVID-19 but if you would like the hard copies of the materials, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a mailing address and we will have them sent out to you.
