Have your say on how to preserve and conserve Point Resolution Reserve

Point Resolution Reserve in Dalkeith offers some of the most diverse landforms and natural landscapes around the Swan River – and the City of Nedlands wants to hear from you about its future.

The Point Resolution Reserve Enviro-scape Master Plan is designed to develop a strategic vision for the area’s future use and development by identifying and researching a range of topics.

City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said issues to be considered include the natural and built environment, water quality and conservation, climate change, accessibility, amenity, community use and ensuring the precinct is fit for purpose.

“There are several proposed initiatives, including increasing bushland and canopy cover, maintaining beach vehicle access for maintenance purposes and linking the playground to the footpath,” he said.

“New paths are also planned to improve the connection to David Cruickshank Reserve and other points of interest.

“The draft plan has been developed based on best management principles for public open space – but also as a starting point for community conversations.”

Community information sessions are being held at Adam Armstrong Pavilion, David Cruickshank Reserve, off Beatrice Road, Dalkeith, on 16 November from 4pm to 5pm and 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

“The City acknowledges that successful engagement with its community increases their participation in activities and decisions that affect them,” Mayor Hipkins said.

“It is intrinsic to providing good governance and strong leadership and ensures the community is consulted about its needs and concerns, as part of the City’s decision-making processes.

“This project aims to ensure community needs are met in the most economical way possible across Point Resolution Reserve’s entire lifespan.”
