Consultation closed on 30 April 2020 and the Concept Design and Masterplan has now been adopted. Read the latest project update

Luckens Reserve is a significant park in West Harbour that is currently underused due to flooding and drainage issues, unusable existing amenities (such as the half basketball court and half pipe) and poor connections between play equipment.

A concept design for the reserve has been developed for the Upper Harbour Local Board.

What we'd like your feedback on

We are seeking feedback from the community on the concept design and development stages of Luckens Reserve and also want to know the community's priorities on play space development opportunities.

Proposed stages for development

There are three proposed stages for the redevelopment of Luckens Reserve:

Stage One - Currently in progress

This section of the redevelopment has been allocated as Stage 1 due to the severe flooding and accessibility issues on site. Stage 1 includes:

  • Mitigating the the flooding issue within the park by improving the drainage in some areas
  • Upgrading the path network
  • Use of water sensitive plants in certain areas which will help with drainage issues and mitigate flooding over our footpaths and other park assets.

Stage Two - Upgrading the play space
Including pre-school to school aged play and youth/young adult play or nature play. We are seeking feedback on what type of play space you most want to see.

Stage Three - Upgrading the wider reserve area
We are seeking feedback on what type of activities you want to pursue at the reserve and what is most important to you to see happen with the wider reserve

    All feedback received during the consultation period in April 2020 for 'Luckens Reserve Concept Design Masterplan Redevelopment' was collated into a report and a concept design for the reserve. This was presented to the Upper Harbour Local Board at a workshop on 12 September.

    The board decided that the masterplan will be formally resolved at a business meeting before Christmas 2020.

    Stage One of the masterplan will be delivered in 2021.

    At this stage, the masterplan will serve as information and guidance for the future developments of Stage Two and Stage Three. Additional public consultation will take place before delivery of these two stages.

    Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Concept Design Masterplan Redevelopment for Luckens Reserve.

    The consultation closed on 30 April 2020 and the project team are currently analysing all the feedback received.

    What are the next steps?

    Feedback will be integrated into the full report and concept design for the reserve. This will be presented to the Upper Harbour Local Board for approval. There is no date yet for the local board to approve the concept design as other priorities are currently on the local board agenda. A tentative date of August-September 2020 is proposed, but we will provide an update when this date is confirmed.

    Delivery Timeline

    • Stage 1 is to be delivered in FY21
    • Stage 2 and 3 do not yet have a definitive timeline for delivery. The concept masterplan will serve as information and guidance for the future development of Stage 2 and 3. Additional public consultation will take place before delivery of these two stages.
