Regarding the proposed sale of an additional portion of Debneys Park, the majority of Council voted in favour of this with me and Cr Cusack strongly opposing this proposal. The Mayor is working with South Ward Councillors to try to develop new plans that do not require any sale of parkland. I will keep you posted.
Improvements at Debneys Park
Council with support from the Heart Foundation and with input from a special group of local primary school students and Flemington residents, has developed a draft plan to improve and activate Debneys Park in Flemington.
Overall improvements outlined in the draft plan include:
Introducing new active play spaces for children of all ages while retaining the basketball court
New seating and furniture
Improved pathways for pedestrians and cyclists
Viewing platforms over the creek
Improvements to biodiversity through new plantings including retention of all existing trees
Increased shade and habitat
Improved entry points to the park
Improvements to the community garden including new fencing, entry point and possible market place
The draft Concept Plan is on consultation for two weeks from 8 July to 22 July.
Copies of the draft Concept Plan will be on display in Debneys Park, Council’s Civic Centre, at the Flemington Community Centre, at the Flemington Library and at mvcc.vic.gov.au.
