Park users urged to have their say
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.
