02 July 2020 2:30 PM

Scott Reserve is set to become a place for everyone to grow, learn and play in the heart of High Wycombe.

The final draft Master Plan for Scott Reserve was adopted by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 23 June 2020.

The Master Plan has been developed in collaboration with the with the Community. The City of Kalamunda undertook extensive community consultation with the High Wycombe community spanning 18 months, commencing with a visioning exercise in 2018 and the draft Master Plan advertised for public comment in February 2020.

The Master Plan provides a clear framework to assist the City in planning, developing and implementing sustainable sport and recreation improvements at Scott Reserve.

Under the Master Plan, some of the key upgrades include construction of a new sports pavilion and community centre, relocation and extension of cricket practice nets, expansion of car parking, improved youth and place spaces, upgrades to sports floodlighting and refurbishment of playing fields.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said, “Scott Reserve will undergo a massive transformation to meet the growing needs of the High Wycombe Community”.

“This is a very exciting project, with the biggest outcomes being increased opportunities to participate in recreational activities and improved provision of community facilities and services”.

“The High Wycombe community embarked on a journey with us over two years to determine the future of this recreational space. It will be very exciting once we start to see the vision for this space come to life.

Feedback on the draft Master Plan demonstrated strong support, with 86% being ‘very satisfied’ or ‘satisfied’ with the draft.

With the Master Plan being adopted, the City will turn its effort to advocacy with external funding opportunities. Master Plan projects are considered to have a long-term implementation phase over a 15 to 20-year period.

All existing facilities will continue to operate as per usual, until external funding is secured.
