2. Encourage casual active recreation by protecting existing walking opportunities in the existing pathway network and future pathways that are developed through subdivision. 

3. Encourage casual community use of the reserve, through enabling recreational uses of buildings, by retaining amenity open space and facilities, and by providing easy access pathways and car parking facilities. Improve safety around buildings sited below the road, through adopting CPTED practices as funding opportunities allow. 

4. Manage the regenerating forest on the southern pathway, promoting healthy ecological functioning, through animal and plant pest control and through natural revegetation. 

5. Protect street-to-street, reserve-to-reserve, commuter and shopping centre connections. 

6. Retain liquor ban. 

7. Allow for shared use of the carpark by supermarket shoppers, and allow recreational users to book carparks for events.
