Dry Creek Corridor Upgrade (Stage 2)

Council decision/outcomes

Community feedback was presented to Council at a meeting on 26 July where Council noted the report and that a draft Dry Creek Corridor Masterplan is to be prepared and presented to Council in 2023 after Council has received the report on the Wynn Vale Dam Stage 2 Asset Audit.

Staff will develop an overarching Masterplan for the Dry Creek Corridor which will combine Stage 1 and Stage 2 concept plans into one document, as well as include the pending concept plan for the open space upgrades at Wynn Vale Dam. It would also include critical information from the Dry Creek Corridor Biodiversity Plan 2021, plus further biodiversity analysis of the remainder of the Corridor which still needs to be undertaken. A cultural heritage assessment is also being conducted which will inform the Masterplan. This will result in a single document for reference for future planning and prioritisation of works in the Dry Creek Corridor.

We will update this page when the Council meeting to present the draft Masterplan is scheduled, and will provide this advice to those who provided feedback.

What changes would you like to see?

The Dry Creek Corridor in the City of Tea Tree Gully extends for approximately 9kms from the Council boundary at Tasman Avenue, Gilles Plains in the south to Hancock Road, Fairview Park in the north.

In March 2020 Council endorsed a concept plan for the Modbury Precinct section of this corridor, with community feedback informing the development of this plan (stage 1).

We’re now looking to build on this work and update the concept plan to incorporate the sections of the creek either side of the Modbury Precinct section.

We are seeking ideas and suggestions from the community about changes and upgrades they would like to see along these two remaining sections of natural landscape which include the following Council reserves:

  • Gilles, Vaucluse and Valley View Reserve in the south
  • Kingfisher Reserve, Jubilee Reserve, Wynn Vale Dam, Dotterel Reserve, Greenway Reserve and Palmer Reserve in the north

Upgrades will improve connections and access to the corridor, and increase opportunities for informal recreation and community activities, as well as recognise the historical and cultural significance of the Dry Creek Corridor, and improve the natural environment and biodiversity.

Upgrades are about to begin at Lot 50 in Kingfisher Reserve (formerly Willason's Farm), including the installation of a public toilet, landscaping and pathways. This work is part of the Modbury Heights Precinct Plan which Council endorsed in October 2016.

    Of the participants of this project how many actually live in the surrounding suburbs and actually use this corridor for exercise and mental health. Will there be improved lighting to improve the safety of walkers at night. No disruption to existing flora and fauna enjoyed by wild life. Will the fencing be repaired and upgraded to protect the wild life from the number one predator stated in the Bio Diversity Review "CATS ". Given the increasing threat of global warming, a subject not embraced by this council given the increase in the heat map, how will the ponds be kept to adequate levels to sustain the existing wild life given that, particularly the pond at the Grenfell Road end is fed by run off from Redwood Park.
