A message of thanks from Mayor, Cr Stuart King

Thank you for taking the time to complete the Swan Hill Showgrounds Recreation Reserve Precinct Master Plan survey.

We received over 400 survey contributions and responses are now being collated.

The Swan Hill Rural Council is currently developing a Master Plan for Swan Hill Showgrounds Sport and Recreation Precinct. The Plan will identify and clarify the opportunities, challenges, and limitations at the Precinct, as well as provide direction to Council and user groups for its future development for the next 10 to 20 years.

The Precinct is one of Council's premier sport facilities and incorporates two grass ovals, eight netball hardcourts, cricket nets, the Swan Hill Aquatic and Recreation Centre, a grandstand and seating, sports and show pavilions, switchboard rooms, storage sheds, and scoreboards.

The Precinct is home to a wide range of user groups with varying needs and usage frequencies.

The Master Plan will focus on the entire precinct, and will be responsive to community expectations, as well as being achievable, realistic, and attainable within Council's budgetary framework.

We are seeking community input into the strategy and invite you to participate in this survey which will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. We ask that you please submit your response by Sunday, 16 June 2024.

Please note that all your responses are confidential and that at no stage will your personal details or individual comments be used for any purpose other than reporting on this research.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to the study, and if you have any issues with the survey, or questions about the project, please contact Community Development Coordinator, Dione Heppell,
