Mullum Mullum Reserve Update June 2015
Implementation of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan is progressing following the plan's adoption in September 2014.
A planning permit has been awarded to to carry out a range of works at Mullum Mullum Reserve, including:
- Line marking of the lower car park
- Widening and upgrading the entrances at Springvale and Reynolds roads
- Minor roadworks, including construction of a roundabout
- Construction of additional car spaces
- Installation of new and upgrading existing pedestrian paths, including an additional shared cycling and pedestrian path to connect with the Mullum Mullum Creek Trail
- Landscaping works, including planting along the southern boundary and Springvale Road frontage
- Installation of prototype stormwater treatment rain gardens (a trial in collaboration with Melbourne Water)
- Upgrade of public lighting.
The works will commence in July 2015 and are estimated to take three months to complete.
During this time there will be impacts on access into and around the reserve, and car parking. Traffic management and signage will be put in place to inform reserve users of the changes.
A key feature of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan is to build a multi-use stadium, which will include five multi-use sports courts and seating for up to 500 spectators to cater for a range of sports such as basketball, netball, badminton and volleyball.
Plans for the proposed stadium are progressing with a separate planning permit application to be submitted in the coming months.
