The Burnie City Council welcomes today’s funding announcement from the Member for Montgomery the Hon Leonie Hiscutt MLC for further enhancements of Barker Street Reserve at Havenview. 

The one-off grant of $50,000 will support Council’s contribution to fund the building of a toilet at the reserve. 

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “These stage 2 works will complement recent upgrades that were undertaken at the reserve which include a children’s playground and bbq complete with shelter. 

“The works are in accordance with Council’s Open Space Development Strategy and the recommendation to progressively upgrade existing neighborhood parks to include greater amenity. 

“These upgrades will provide an enhanced area for the local community, and is fitting for a community which has a higher proportion of children than the Burnie, State and National average (2016 census). 

“Council would like to thank the Havenview Residents Group for their work on developing the plan to improve the Barker Street Reserve.”
