Have your say: draft J.R. Parsons Reserve Community Vision and Site Plan

Brimbank Council is seeking community feedback on the draft J.R Parsons Reserve Community Vision and Site Plan.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Lucinda Congreve said the development of the draft plan had been informed by earlier consultation undertaken in December 2018 and March 2019.

“We’ve already undertaken a range of consultation to help inform the development of this draft community vision and site plan for J.R. Parsons Reserve in Sunshine.

“The response has been great to date. We thank everyone who has already been part of this process which has helped shape the draft vision and site plan that we are now seeking feedback on.

“J.R. Parsons Reserve is an established and important destination for formal sports – specifically football, cricket and tennis – and the reserve offers opportunities for community recreation and other park uses by locals,” Cr Congreve said.

“The aim of the draft community vision and site plan is to make this reserve the best it can be for the wider local community and the sports clubs that call the reserve home.

“We want to create new opportunities for the reserve to become a destination for locals to socialise, play, exercise and network; while also improving the landscape, safety and amenity,” Cr Congreve said.

J.R. Parsons Reserve is located on the corner of Wright and Stanford streets, Sunshine.

The reserve currently includes two sports ovals, six tennis courts, cricket practice nets, a playground, and bushland area. It is home to Sunshine Park Tennis Club, the Grand United Cricket Club and the Albion Football Club.

The draft J.R Parsons Reserve Community Vision and Site Plan will be on public exhibition until 29 July 2019.
