Future of Lake Apex and Lake Freeman – HAVE YOUR (Refreshed) SAY

Project Overview

Lockyer Valley Regional Council is inviting you to have your say on the future options for the Lakes Precinct which includes Lake Apex and Lake Freeman in Gatton. We want to know what the lakes mean to you, and how we can work together to improve, protect and preserve the quality, role and function of the lakes for generations to come.

It has been more than a decade since the original Lake Apex Park Master Plan came into effect. Council wants to hear from the community about what matters most and gather early ideas for how we might revisit the Master Plan for a more resilient Lakes Precinct.

Council has identified the importance of conducting an early insight ‘pulse-check’ with the community to see what you think has changed and gather new ideas about what matters most to you and the broader regional community on the lakes.

There are many ways to have your say including an online community survey, youth drawing competition (for children 5 to 12 years) and pop-up stalls at a range of community events across the region in the month of October into the first week of November.

Best of all, survey and drawing competition participants will have the chance to win one of three $100 vouchers, donated by the Lockyer Chamber of Commerce & Industry. So, what are you waiting for? Have your say today!
