Vesteys Reserve

vesteys beach consultation

The community was asked to share their views and vision for the future of Vesteys Reserve, with an eight-week consultation program which ran from 17 June to 12 August 2016. City of Darwin engaged Michels Warren Munday to manage the consultation process independently. 

Thank you to everyone who provided input into the consultation process. The Vesteys Reserve Consultation Report was presented to Council on Tuesday 30 August. The Council Decision included a commitment to consider the views and aspirations from community members, as detailed in the consultation report, in assessing the future use and decisions involving Vesteys Reserve. The Council Report and Decision can be found within the Agenda and Minutes here. Any further updates will be added to this web page.

About Vesteys Reserve

Vesteys Reserve is an area of land 204,900 square metres along the coast near Mindil Beach and zoned public open space.  It has recently been identified as potentially suitable for future community-based recreation facilities, integrating with nearby Mindil Beach.

All options are open for discussion, from doing nothing (leaving the Reserve as is) to exploring recreational opportunities into the future.
