This masterplan seeks to create a passive open space/environmentally focussed reserve in Elsternwick Park. The development of the area must be guided by the following four priorities:

  • Protect the natural environment;
  • Increase enjoyment of the open space via compatible, community and visitor facilities;
  • Improve water quality in Elster Creek and the Bay; and
  • Reduce the risk of flood damage in Elwood and Brighton.

In line with Council’s resolution to create an area of environmentally focussed passive open space, there are a number of uses that will not be considered. These include using the nature reserve for:

  • sports grounds or formal sports;
  • off leash dog facilities; or
  • other activities that will have a negative impact, or could reduce the environmental value of the Reserve
