In Johnsonville, transport improvements, new community facilities, greater housing choice, improved urban design and public spaces, and a greater range of shops are all part of a master plan for the Johnsonville town centre.
The first stage of the park’s redevelopment occurred in 2014, with construction of a car park and perimeter walkway, and installation of artificial turf on the northern sports field.
We propose completion of stage 2 in 2018. It will involve joint funding of a new pavilion and sports centre on Bannister Avenue. The Council’s contribution is $1.45 million, while clubs in the area have combined to fundraise for the remainder.
We propose to build a new, larger library in Johnsonville, to cater for increasing demand as the area’s population grows.
The new library will be located between Keith Spry Pool and the Johnsonville Community Centre, allowing the three facilities to operate as an integrated community hub. It is likely to include a café and possibly other community space as well as library facilities.
Design work for the new library will be undertaken during 2015, with the aim of having the building open in 2018.
