The Bowen Oval is a regional sporting precinct for the town of Coolah, near Dubbo in New South Wales, with a population of less than 1,000. The community commissioned MODE to prepare a master plan which would maximise the opportunities for Bowen Oval, the New South Wales state’s use of the site and provide for staged redevelopment. Through community consultation, the sports facility, adjoining golf club and primary school joined in discussions to negotiate property boundaries and shared facilities in order to maximise community benefits and minimise cost.
