We would like to hear from you!

Consultation has concluded

This consultation is now closed. Thanks for your feedback and participation.

The Old Cheese Factory is originally part of the historic Springfield Estate, it allows visitors to step back in time and explore the historic buildings, including the Homestead Café, the beautifully-landscaped gardens, large children’s playground and barbecue/picnic facilities.

Council has prepared the draft Old Cheese Factory Master Plan to deliver a range of recommendations over the next 5 years based on extensive community and stakeholder feedback.

The plan addresses current challenges and seeks to implement available opportunities within the venue. The plan allows for the site to become a well known community destination that provides a space for leisure, visual and creative arts, community interaction, celebration and open space.

Share your feedback with us on what is important to you when you visit this facility, by completing a short survey by 6 June 2016. Your responses are confidential.

Feedback from the survey will be reported to Council and may result in further refinements to the master plan.

Residents that complete the survey have the option to go into the draw to win a $100 voucher for the Homestead Café or the hire of a room for a casual function at the venue valued up to $190. See terms and conditions.
