Corbett Gardens

Consultation has concluded

One of our most renowned and loved recreational spaces is due for a makeover and we want to hear your ideas for improving it.

Do you only enjoy Corbett Gardens during the magnificent displays of tulips in spring or are you a regular visitor who loves the peace it provides on a lunch break? Whatever your interest we'd love to hear which aspects are most important to you and what needs to be refreshed, removed, replaced or upgraded.

In early 2015 we asked the community how they currently used the park and how they'd like it improved (survey closed 15 June 2015) before submissions were sought about the categorisation of Corbett Gardens (closed 10 July 2015). We are currently reviewing all comments and awaiting Council's decision about land use for the site. Further information will be added to this page when we have draft designs and plans on exhibition in early 2016.
