Rathmines Park Plan of management and Master plan

Locale have prepared a Plan of Management and Master plan for the Rathmines Park area – being a former RAAF base on the foreshore of Lake Macquarie.  The area has a wide range of current uses, heritage overlays and areas of environmental importance.  With an active and engaged community, the site is important to supply quality open space whilst recognising its historical features.

The project continued on the back of the Heritage Council approved Conservation Management Plan, providing a baseline from which to establish future use opportunities and layout.  Whilst incorporating key heritage items, the site also provided the opportunity to engage with the youth of the area,  through a dedicated youth precinct / skatepark area, as well as a substantial play space and picnic areas.

The Master Plan and Plan of Management are now leading the detailed design of key facilities, allowing the next phase of the site to become a reality for the local community.
