    The Community-needs Assessment Report was considered by the Council at its meeting on 19 December 2017 (Agenda Item 13.10, Page 46). The Council resolved to receive the report for consideration in future budgeting and planning processes (Minute Item 13.10, Page 64).

    The report was commissioned to ensure Council has access to an independent assessment of the community need in that area, in relation to community facilities. This information will assist Council when making future decisions about community facilities. The study’s recommendations are based on careful, detailed consultation with the community surrounding Lawler Park and various stakeholders.

This information will assist Council when making future decisions about community facilities. The study’s recommendations are based on careful, detailed consultation with the community surrounding Lawler Park and various stakeholders.

    The study found that the City of Nedlands community surrounding Lawler Park is not of a size that warrants either a regional or local community centre; and that the most effective way of meeting the local need for community facilities would be to upgrade the Hackett Play Centre and enhance the support facilities around the Scouts Hall and within the park generally.

    The full report is attached to the agenda (as above) can be downloaded from the document library on this engagement page.
