CONCEPT art of the Baldivis South Youth Space has been unveiled at a City of Rockingham committee meeting to rave reviews from councillors.

The council looks like it will approve the final design when it meets on Tuesday after the community development committee recommended it be passed.

Plans for the Youth Space, which looks set to be built on Tranby Reserve, were released for public consultation during late March to early April and included visits to primary and secondary schools in the area.

The concept includes trampolines, a skate plaza, an adventure play area, 3m retaining walls with climbing studs as well as drinks fountains and a path network.

However, the plan has been met by some opposition, with Tranby College representatives unhappy with the proposed site of Tranby Reserve.

Speaking at a committee meeting earlier this week, Cr Justin Smith said no matter where council put the Youth Space, people were going to complain, as even though they supported it, they did not want to be next door to it.

Cr Kelly McManus said while she heard the concerns of the college, councillors could only vote on the design of the space and not its location as that was decided in April last year.

Cr Lee Downham praised the efforts of all involved, saying it had everything conceivable for youth.
