Suit-all so­lu­tion sought

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.”
