Submit your proposal

Once you've spoken with us, the next step is submit your proposal using the online form. Our guide explains the assessment process and what you need to include.

We will assess your proposal and let you know the outcome. If we need more information we will let you know.

When submitting a proposal, make sure you allow plenty of lead time. We set our work schedules and budgets 12 months in advance and assessments can take several weeks.

Review the the Recreation and Open Space Strategy and the Delivery Program and Operational Plan to see what projects are already on our workplan. These documents set out the long-range and annual priorities for recreation facilities and open spaces.

You might also take a look at any landscape masterplans for the location or facility that relates to your project.
