Xyst in action
One memorable and rewarding project was leading the team that created sports fields in a greenfield location. This was in response to growth pressures creating congested parks at peak times and challenges for sports codes to be accommodated in their preferred location.
By initiating a review of the demand and needs analysis, reserve management plan update and being successful in seeking funds at the LTP, we helped to create a new sports park with all associated facilities for the benefit of field sports, passive recreation and play.
