History of creating the Master Plan

The Callan Park Master Plan has been structured around the objectives of the Callan Park (Special Provisions) Act 2002:

  • preserving open space and heritage
  • providing active and passive recreation space, and
  • developing health, community and education facilities.

The final draft of the Callan Park Master Plan took 18 months with a community engagement process where 2000 people took part through workshops, drop in events and an interactive website.

There has been strong support for the continuation of mental health services on the site.

There has also been strong community support throughout the entire consultation process for maintaining the entire Callan Park Site as a single entity.

The Callan Park Master Plan recommends the establishment of a Trust as the governing body.
