Happy Mount Park Master Plan
Various consultations have taken place over the last year. From these a group has worked with a designer to develop a draft master plan for the next 10 - 20 years of the park. See the downloads on the right of the page.
The overriding comments which have driven the design of the plan is that most users love the park as it is! Therefore, the master plan is about maintaining the current character of the park and preserving/enhancing it for the future.
We will be asking for peoples opinions of the plan via Facebook and a drop-in session at the park, 30th August 2014; 2-4pm.
