Yarra Ranges Council


SBP was engaged to facilitate the development of a new Recreation and Open Space Strategy (ROSS) that creates a sense of place and improved health and wellness outcomes for all Yarra Ranges residents and visitors. The objective of the project was to establish a long-term plan to deliver an open space network that sets Yarra Ranges apart.

The project included an extensive research, analysis and stakeholder engagement process, including detailed data set matching, segmentation and analysis (open space, community demographics, public health, global best-practice case studies, mapping and visualisations), 1,200 community survey responses, 80 individual consultations and 11 community forums to understand the recreation and open space needs.

The final outcome was a ROSS which can guide the enhancement of the open space network and entice residents to settle and raise families, and live healthy, active lifestyles among nature and the environment.
