Boulters Heights Reserve Draft Masterplan

The City of Bunbury has prepared a draft Masterplan for Boulters Heights Reserve to ensure a holistic design approach is undertaken to develop the CBD reserve into the future.

Council sought community feedback on the draft Masterplan in late 2021 to ensure that the draft design proposals are in line with the community values forthe reserve.The City received 153 survey responses, 746 document downloads, 17 written submissions, and 1653 comments and likes.

Community feedback received has guided how we prioritise works, what we can deliver using existing budget and what requires external funding for delivery.

The project team made changes to the draft Masterplan based on comments received during the engagement phase. The proposed changes included:

  • Ways to enhance the Boulters waterfall, to acknowledge and celebrate when this was a functioning and flowing waterfall
  • The pathway network
  • Enhancements to lookouts and other features
  • Improved landscaping and restoration
  • Prioritisation of works

A community meeting was held at the city in August 2022 to present the engagement results and proposed changes.

Council will recieve the final Boulters Heights Masterplan for endorsement in September - October 2022. Stay tuned for publicupdates on this project.

The City of Bunbury acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, the Wardandi Noongar people, and pays respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
