The Trustees of Belmont Trust want to hear your vision for the future recreational use of the area.

This engagement project aims to understand what recreational uses the community would like to see on the site and how any recreation facilities are paid for and maintained. Information gathered throughout this project will assist the Belmont Trust to establish a strategic vision for the land.

  • Survey

    The Trust conducted a survey from 5 February to 13 March to learn about the community's current use of the land, elements they would like to change or keep the same and how they thought any changes should be funded.

    Survey closed Sunday 13 March 2022.

  • Deliberative Panel EOI

    Expressions of Interest for the Deliberative Panel were open from 5 February to 13 March. If selected for the panel, members will attend workshops, explore and evaluate options involved in the decision-making process, and give feedback which will be compiled into a final report and evaluation.

    EOI closed Sunday 13 March 2022.

What is the Belmont Trust?

Belmont Trust land covers approximately 14 hectares and features a complexity of overlapping stories, uses and histories.

While the City of Belmont owns the land, a Declaration of Trust over the land has seen Trustees appointed to manage the way the land can be used. The Trustees are the current and successive Elected Members of the City of Belmont Council. This is a unique situation which has been in place since the Declaration was formalised in 1954, when the City of Belmont was known as Belmont Park Road Board.

The Trustees are inviting the City of Belmont community to learn more about the complexities of Belmont Trust and get involved in shaping the future of this piece of land.
