We seek your feedback on our draft Play Spaces Strategy

In October 2012 the Launceston City Council invited the community to have a say on the future of play spaces in Launceston. We asked you to tell us your thoughts and ideas on current play spaces to help us shape our draft Play Spaces Strategy.

Thank you for your feedback. We've noted your key messages, listed other issues raised during the consultation as well as additional issues raised by Launceston City Council staff.

From this feedback we have developed a draft strategy and again, we are asking for your feedback. We say what we mean by play and have included in the library a list all council parks and play areas with an analysis of each and recommendations for the future. Please read the one page introduction to this consultation and take this opportunity to review the documents and provide comment.

We invite you to provide feedback on the strategy.

  1. Take the QUICK POLL
  2. Take the 5 minute SURVEY
  3. Read the information on each topic and join in a discussion with others in the FORUM
  4. Add your comments and ideas to each of the FORUM TOPICS
  5. Or, if you prefer, you can EMAIL US

If you would like to download full versions of the draft Strategy, the Locality Analysis and Design Guidelines, you will find them in the library.

    The Strategy is a long term vision on improving play provision in the City of Launceston.  Play spaces represent a major investment by Launceston City Council and must be carefully managed to ensure they meet the needs of the community and offer the best value for available resources both now and in the future. 

    If you would like more information, read our documents in the library or send us an email.

    With our goal to create more diverse higher quality play spaces in larger hubs, if a park didn't have a swing and a slide, what type of play would you put there?  Would you like to see an open area?  Or, maybe a community garden? 

    If you have any other ideas, we would love to hear them.

    These principles along with the design guidelines will guide us in the development of future play spaces.
