Thank you to all of the residents, stakeholders and members of the community who provided feedback as part of the recent consultation phase of the draft Basin Triangle Masterplan. We will commence work on revising the draft Basin Triangle Masterplan based on your feedback.
We are also about to commence work on The Basin Parking Management Plan over the coming months. As these two projects are closely linked, we will work with our Traffic & Transport Team to join our findings together and re-engage with the community once both projects are ready for consultation.
The Basin Triangle is located at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges and is the heart of The Basin shopping precinct. It is a well-loved and used public open space.
In 2021 Council commenced a Masterplan for The Basin Triangle. This design process will set the strategic direction for the park and propose improvements that will expand on the park's existing features, reflect changing community needs for this open space to ensure current and future generations will continue enjoy and utilise it.
The development of a masterplan for The Basin Triangle is in line with the Knox Open Space Plan 2012-2022, which was developed with the Knox Community. The plan enhances and maintains local parks and open spaces and highlights the demand on parks and open spaces, as well as future opportunities for improvement.
Please note, this is a draft masterplan not a detailed design plan.
The key priorities of the masterplan are to:
- Ensure the park is safe and accessible for all users
- Provide safe pedestrian movement from the retail areas
- Provide wheelchair access to all main areas of the space
- Increase public seating to allow for increased future usage
- Provide for increasing population growth and changing needs
A Parking Management Plan for The Basin will be delivered separately to this project.
Stage 1 Community Engagement (November 2021)
- October 2021 – Detailed Site Analysis
- November 2021 - Park Score Community Survey and Assessment (62 participants)
- 23 November 2021 - Vision Community Workshop (18 participants)
Stage 2 Community Engagement (June 2022)
- Community invited to submit feedback on the Draft Masterplan
- Pop-up sessions held on site at The Basin Triangle
- Meetings with key site stakeholders of The Basin Triangle
The existing playspace is well used and loved by the local community. The Draft Masterplan proposes that a new nature based playground be built in the future, once the current playground reaches the end of its lifespan. This new playground would be located to the north of the park, enlarging the existing lawn area for events and community use. We are keen to hear if this is something that the community would support. The playspace would only be relocated in the future if the community supported this proposal.
