Brisbane City Council has commenced working on the draft of the proposed Enoggera Creek Sport and Recreation Precinct Plan, with the first round of community consultation already completed.

The precinct covers sport and recreation parks, including Spencer Park, Finsbury Park, and Downey Park, between Lutwyche Road and Enoggera Road. The vast strip of land stretches across the suburbs of Newmarket, Wilston, and Windsor.

Scope of the Plan
In all, the scope of the sports and recreation precinct plan includes 10 parks and sporting facilities for baseball, softball, cricket, rugby, soccer, hockey, tennis, netball, and table tennis, as well as a new park along Northey Street.

“The precinct plan will guide future investment, development and management of this popular sport and recreation precinct. The plan will also include the design of a new sports and community park along Northey Street in Windsor,” the Brisbane City Council website said.

To bring the project into fruition, the Council will undertake the following steps:

~ investigate and provide feedback on the community’s vision
~ develop concept plan ideas
~ release draft concept plans for community feedback
~ finalise a concept plan following further community consultation and feedback.

TIMELINE
Between 18 October and 2 December 2018, the Council conducted preliminary consultations held at Northey Street City Farm Markets in Northey Street and McCook Park in Newmarket, as well as an online consultation. The consultations encouraged participants to give their insights, focusing on how the precinct is valued and used.

The feedback gathered, including those received last 2016, will be a valuable source of information during the development of precinct concept plans.

The community will have several other opportunities to have their say on the draft plan from early 2019. The concept plan will also be released at a community event in 2019.
