In September 2011, the Council adopted the Hobart Rivulet Park Strategic Master Plan 2011.
The development of this strategic master plan will guide the future development and management of the parkland and open space along the rivulet. The plan considers the entirety of the rivulet but focuses primarily on the section of the Hobart Rivulet Park between Molle Street to the Wellington Park boundary. It also considers the links in open space and use to surrounding areas such as the city centre area, Knocklofty and West Hobart.
The preparation of the plan involved extensive community consultation.
The Council is now in the process of implementing Concept Plan 4, the Anglesea Street section of rivulet located adjacent to the new Christian City Church. Stage 1 includes demolition of the house and sheds, commencing in November 2011. The neighbouring community will be consulted regarding the detailed designs. Plans include weed removal, landscaping and the construction of separated bike and walking tracks. This will provide long-awaited public access along this section of the rivulet.
Concept Plan 5, focussing on Degraves Street, is also in the process of implementation. Designs include improved traffic, pedestrian and bicycle measures.
