The brief for this project was to provide empirical data about the use of Tauranga City Council boat ramps and associated parking areas at Sulphur Point and Mount Maunganui to support decision making about the future of these assets. The study was undertaken at three locations in early 2019, and involved vehicle and trailer counts in six separate use zones, and park user counts at Marine Park. Counts and observations were supplemented with drone aerial photography to provide further evidence of how the areas are used, particularly at peak times.
Xyst recently completed the preparation of a Public Toilet Strategy for the Shire of Wingecarribee. The preparation of the strategy included undertaking intercept surveys at selected public toilets, development of levels of service and a performance based assessment of each facility to provide a statistical prioritisation for renewal planning and implementation plan.
Preparation of City of Melbourne’s first parks asset management plan.
The plan follows the standard structure defined by the IIMM 2016 and has included an asset management maturity assessment and improvement plan, ongoing development of new levels of service framework, risk management analysis and analysis of their parks management strengths and weaknesses, to produce a clear improvement plan to drive future work.
