Planning Leighdale Equestrian Centre's Future
Golden Plains Shire Council is developing a masterplan for the Leighdale Equestrian Centre in Teesdale, and is asking residents how they use and would like to use the centre in the future.
The masterplan for the will provide recommendations for the future planning, development and enhancement of the centre’s facilities and programs, and assist Council to support existing and future community groups who use the centre.
The Leighdale Equestrian Centre provides the local community with a range of opportunities for equestrian participation, including dressage, cross country, showjumping and carriage driving. Clubs currently based at the Leighdale Equestrian Centre include:
- Leighdale Pony Club;
- Inverleigh Riding Club;
- Geelong and District Carriage Driving Club; and
- Bannockburn and Teesdale Riding Club.
Council has already completed extensive consultation with the key stakeholders of the Leighdale Equestrian Centre, and now is seeking further input from the Golden Plains Shire community. Residents are invited to complete a short survey on how they currently use and how they would like to use the centre in the future.
Residents seeking to have their say, can complete the survey online at goldenplains.vic.gov.au/consultations or call Council’s Customer Service team at 5220 7111 to request a hard-copy of the survey. The survey is open until Thursday, 2 July 2020.
Following the survey, the feedback from the community and centre stakeholders will be used to develop a draft Leighdale Equestrian Centre masterplan, which will be presented to Council for adoption later this year.
