Visioning FAQs

What is happening at Maida Vale Reserve?

The City of Kalamunda is investigating how best to make use of the precinct to accommodate a range of sporting and community uses in ways that recognise its value as a community asset and, at the same time, as a local centre for participation in sport, community and leisure activities.

The investigations will include engaging with local residents, people who use the reserve for casual recreation, key stakeholders and with sporting clubs. Advice will also be sought from a number of planning, and sporting and recreational agencies who can provide specialist information.

The outcome of these investigations will be a master plan, which will show any proposed changes.

Consultation with users of the facility and the community is an important process in the development of a Master Plan, along with detailed analysis of the community population and profile and research in to best practice examples. Master Plans provide a high level, costed document for Council’s future planning purposes.

What opportunities will I have to share my views and ideas

There are a number of ways that you can provide your input into the master plan development:

Two Community Drop-in Sessions will be held to provide an opportunity for residents to ask any questions and outline their vision for the Reserve. Both Drop-in Sessions will be held at Norm Sadler Pavilion, Maida Vale Reserve (entry off Ridgehill Road, Maida Vale):

  • Wednesday, 31 January 2018 from 5:30pm and 7:30pm
  • Saturday 17 February 2018 from 10.30am and 12.30pm

In addition to the Drop-in Sessions, there will also be a Community Workshop. The Workshop will be a structured workshop led by a facilitator, to obtain detailed feedback from the community. The Workshop will be held at Norm Sadler Pavilion, Maida Vale Reserve (entry off Ridgehill Road, Maida Vale).

  • Thursday 1 March from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Local residents and all users of the reserve are encouraged to attend to find out more, ask questions and complete a short survey about the Precinct that will help inform the draft master plan.

If you are unable to attend any of the community sessions, please complete our Online Survey.

What are the timeframes for the project?

The basic timeline is further outlined on this website; however, in general, consultation will take place from December 2017 to March 2018 along with other background research. The draft master plan will be developed and then advertised for public comment during July 2018.
