Update on the Osborne Park Master Plan

At the Community Focus Council Meeting Held At Whittington on Tuesday, 13 August 2019, and following public question and submission time, the Osborne Park Master Plan, as created by the appointed consultants, Hansen Partnerships, was presented to Council.

It was rejected as it did not meet the intent or requirements of the Council motion of 24 July 2018.

As a result, Cr Harwood moved, Cr Mansfield seconded – “That Council officers report back to Council by October 2019 with an approach to rescoping the Master Plan in line with the discussion at this evening’s Council Meeting; and Consider the inclusion of a Heritage Interpretation Plan.”

The motion was Carried.

Update on the Osborne House Sustainable Development Plan

Just to re-cap: CoGG Council voted in July 2018, to retain Osborne House in community ownership and accepted a recommendation for a Master Plan to be created. This Master Plan was presented to Council in August 2019 but was rejected because it failed to reflect said motion of elected councillors.
