Park users urged to have their say

Melville Times - - News -

THE City of Melville will ask res­i­dents how they use Shirley Strick­land Re­serve’s open space to help iden­tify fea­tures that should be re­tained and what po­ten­tial dis­rup­tions should be min­imised once the re­de­vel­op­ment has started.

The con­cept for the re­serve was drafted and ap­proved by the coun­cil in De­cem­ber 2016 after com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion in Novem­ber 2015, where a to­tal of 535 re­sponses were re­ceived, in­clud­ing those of seven sport­ing clubs.

Melville Mayor Rus­sell Aubrey said the City would write to peo­ple who owned or lived in prop­erty within 400m, invit­ing them to par­tic­i­pate in the sec­ond round of en­gage­ment in prepa­ra­tion for con­struc­tion, due to start in early 2019.

Lo­cal res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to com­ment on the in­ter­ac­tive map by 5pm on Fri­day, Au­gust 3.
