Thank you for sharing your thoughts on a proposed new basketball 3-point court at J Talbot Reserve
After hearing from our community, we've decided to extend this consultation. We will be reopening this project for your feedback soon. Please follow this page for updates.
Why has a new basketball 3-point court been proposed for J Talbot Reserve?
The existing basketball hoop and gravel court at J Talbot Reserve was installed temporarily around 15 years ago, and it has reached the end of its functional life. We would like to hear from the community about a proposal to install a new basketball 3-point court.
This proposed installation would be part of Council's commitment to ensuring all sporting surfaces and associated facilities are fit for purpose.
The existing basketball facilities are located next to the entrance door to the National Theatre Ballet School. The proposed location of the new basketball 3-point court can be seen in the site map below.
If installed, the new basketball 3-point court would be built of noise-minimising materials, including noise-reduction backboards and a low-noise surface. It would be surrounded with vegetation and screening to minimise visual appearance and avoid balls bouncing onto Barkly Street.
