A.  Recreation Zone
1. Continue to encourage active sports use of the reserve by providing hard court opportunities and sports use of buildings.

2.  Encourage casual community use of the reserve, through existing buildings for community uses, and by retaining safe, easy access pathways and play spaces and equipment, parking and amenity open space.

3.  Provide a pleasant and safe open space amenity to the community that also gives shade for play and casual recreation, and accommodates the open stormwater drain.

4. Protect street-to-street walking connections to shopping, services and city transport.

5. Consider further buildings on the reserve as inappropriate, not including structures to provide shelter for the courts.

6. Enable stormwater and sewerage utility maintenance and recognise utility maintenance requirements in any development plans for planting or recreational use.

7.  Prepare a development plan to achieve these outcomes.

B.  Natural Zone

8.  Protect the natural values of the forest remnant and wetland areas to promote healthy ecological functioning, through animal and plant pest control and natural regeneration.
