Suit-all solution sought
VICTORIA Park Xavier Hockey Club president Ryan Willis wants to work with the residents to come to solution that suits everyone.
“Harold Rossiter Reserve is our preferred location. At the moment we are sharing with Perth Cricket Club who have two of the best wickets outside of the WACA” he said.
“This is something we have been looking at for more than 10 years. There have been studies since 2003.
“In the last four or five years we have been working with the council and Harold Rossiter Reserve is the only viable option in the Town of Victoria Park.”
Mr Willis said it was not about “kicking off” other people from the reserve but working and co-locating with them.
“We understand there are some environmental issues but it’s not something that we have shied away from,” he said.
“I’m not sure if everyone has the full picture yet. Some of the views are based on ill-informed information. We don’t want this to be an us versus them type of thing.”
