Community representatives needed for planning of Sunnyside Park

Horsham Rural City Council is seeking two community representatives to join a Community Reference Group (CRG) to develop a landscape plan for Sunnyside Park.

A landscape plan will identify opportunities to increase community activity within the park. HRCC’s Open Space Strategy encourages the development of public spaces that encourage active recreation and opportunities for people to gather and be connected.

The CRG, made up of various local representatives from existing user groups and community representatives will work with Council to create a shared vision for the Park.

“We are looking for community representatives who live in the Sunnyside area and who represent diverse community interests and backgrounds,” Mayor Robyn Gulline said.

“The community representatives must be willing to constructively participate in discussions to reach outcomes that benefit the broader community.

“We especially would like to hear from you if you are new to the area or are between the ages of 15 and 49,” she said.

Expressions of Interest close 5pm on Friday 25 June 2021. Apply using the form below.

Members of the CRG will be asked to participate in a series of fortnightly workshops, with the first being held by the end of June. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October 2021.

“Attendance at the workshops is essential to being a member of the CRG,” Cr Gulline said.

A nominated representative will also join the CRG from the following groups:

  • Homers Cricket Club
  • Homers Tennis Club
  • Sunnyside Bowling Club
  • Horsham Primary School
  • Holy Trinity Lutheran College
  • Kalkee Football Netball Club

Members or employees of one of the above groups cannot participate as a community representative on the CRG.

Cr Gulline said Council was aware of other Sunnyside Park user groups not listed as representatives on the CRG.

“These groups will be separately engaged early on in the process to make sure we capture their ideas” she said.
