26. Kicking goals with living infrastructure

Showcasing the benefits of open space and water-sensitive urban design.

Developing effective co-location and sharing of valued resources will enable a more sustainable future.

Living infrastructure (green and water sensitive design) planned with sport and recreation facilities can provide great outcomes for the community and the environment in a cost effective way.

To do this, we plan to:

  • create a demonstration project of co-location of open space and water sensitive design at the Honey Farm Road Sport and Recreation Precinct
  • undertake a detailed evaluation of the project to inform future planning
  • create guidelines for the future of co-location.
