Council has updated the Draft Plan of Management for Boronia Park.

Check Alister Sharp’s detailed review of the How this Draft Plan compares with 2014 Draft Plan.  Important changes include:

  • cars would be admitted to Princes ‘during home game days, designated organised sporting group training times and sporting/community events only, with opening and closing of the gate to be managed by council’. The existing rough carpark between Ovals 2 and 3 would be upgraded, and used for ‘maintenance/emergency/disabled parking and drop-off zone’. The upper part of the southern side of Princes St would become ‘permeable perpendicular WUSD parking bays’. [See clause 4.5.2 part 2.1 and 4.5.3 part 3.2]
  • the possibility that a ‘Community Facility may be incorporated into the proposed amenity block adjacent to oval #3 if integration within/adjacent to the existing pavilion (grandstand) is not feasible’ [see clause 4.5.2 part 2.1].

There still appears to be no provision for off-leash exercise of dogs.
