Sir Robert Menzies Reserve - Cricket Net Installation

Stonnington Council is seeking community feedback on the proposed installation of cricket practice net facilities at Sir Robert Menzies Reserve, Malvern. The cricket nets will be used by both senior and local junior clubs for training and be available for casual use by local residents.

With no cricket practice facilities present at Sir Robert Menzies Reserve, tenant clubs are forced to train and play at different venues which is detrimental to their success.

Council has prepared a draft concept plan and 3D artist impressions to assist residents and sports club users in providing feedback on the proposal. The plan incorporates two (2) hard wicket practice nets set into the slope along the western side of the reserve and would have minimal impact on existing vegetation with the loss of just three trees which will be offset by replanting within the reserve.

Council is committed to the development of quality sport and recreation facilities to support casual sport and recreation opportunities in the community and sees this as an exciting initiative to meet local demand.

The Survey will be open from Monday 14 August to Sunday 3 September.
