Horham Rural City council asks for public feedback on Horsham Aquatic Centre draft master plan

HORSHAM Rural City Council has invited residents to have their say on the Horsham Aquatic Centre draft master plan.

Horsham council has held two community information sessions and has launched a survey via its website.

The list of proposed changes includes:

  • A new playground and in the complex’s north-east corner
  • A new shaded water play park on the current site of toddler pool and program pool
  • A new multi-use building with massage and physio rooms and outdoor function area
  • Outdoor exercise area south of gymnasium 
  • Shade cloth over outdoor pool
  • New trees along O’Callaghans Parade 

Council community services director Kevin O’Brien said the draft master plan was the result of significant stakeholder consultation and expert consulting work by Energy Architecture.

“We’re confident that the draft master plan encompasses the views expressed to us during our community engagement with key stakeholders and with the Horsham Aquatic Centre Advisory Committee,” he said.

“It’s an exciting project with a number of really interesting prospects for the site so we hope the community will embrace it and give us the input we need to make sure the facility services the public in the best ways possible.”

Council will accept comments on the draft plan until close of business on May 5.

Draft plans are on display in the foyer of the Civic Centre in Roberts Avenue, and at the Horsham Aquatic Centre.

The draft master plan cost up to $35,000 to produce.
