Council Asking Community Input for Nudgee Recreation Reserve Draft Concept Plan

The Nudgee Recreation Reserve draft concept plan has been released for community feedback.

Brisbane City Council is asking members of the community to provide their thoughts regarding the proposed improvement works of the site, with the release of the draft concept plan. 

Among other questions, the survey is asking if the residents have any comments about the draft concept plan or how they see themselves or their families using the recreation reserve in the future.

The council is planning to deliver shared-use sporting fields, outdoor gym equipment and walking path, sports field lighting, upgraded car park, clubhouse and amenities as well as dog off-leash area on site. 

The local community can have their say by completing the online survey until 22 September 2019 or by joining an information session with the project team outside Banyo Train Station, at 268 St Vincents Road on 14 September 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

BCC will use community feedback and information from the site investigations to inform the final concept plan for the Nudgee Recreation Reserve. Council will advise the community once the plan has been finalised.

About Nudgee Recreation Reserve

The reserve, located at 290 Elliott Road in Nudgee, was first used as an informal site for cricket and football matches during the 1940s. In the 1970s, it was used as a landfill for two years. Sporting activities in the site resumed in the 1990s when the landfill was closed.  

Council will be undertaking further investigations of the former landfill site from September 2019. This entails clearing of vegetation consisting mostly of invasive species. No significant trees will be removed and all works will be carried out in accordance with relevant environmental guidelines.
