Joint Use Agreements: Forest Ave Reserve and other school ovals


Council will soon be updating and ensuring consistency between what Council is responsible for at each site. The current agreements have some similarities but they are not the same. There is often confusion, especially from residents, about the work that Council does at the above site. At the current time this is mowing, aerating, etc the grass and line marking. It does not include the playground (or loss of the playground), trimming the gardens or planting replacement vegetation: all of these are the responsibility of Black Forest Primary School. It seems, on occasion, that it has been convenient for the school to suggest that these are part of the JUT agreement when they are not. Hopefully, greater consistency will reduce this conflict.
