Mullum Mullum Reserve update - 30 October 2013
During August, we asked you for information about how you use the Reserve and surrounding area to help inform the development of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan. Analysis was also undertaken on the traffic and car parking at the Reserve and a consultation session was held with the major highball sporting clubs across the municipality about potential use of a highball facility.
While planning is still being undertaken for a highball facility at Mullum Mullum Reserve, this preliminary work has identified that the proposed facility will not include a show court. This decision is critical as it influences the seating for the facility and as a result, the parking requirements for the Reserve. In the short term, the Plan will propose to accommodate five courts with approximately 500 seats and 250 additional parking spaces.
This outcome will provide five of the 15 court shortfall of highball facilities within the municipality. The facility will be multi-use and as such, will be able to host a range of sports and clubs, sports finals andtournaments, and competitions such as the Big V basketball games.
