Brimbank council wants community feedback to guide the rejuvenation of JR Parsons Reserve in Sunshine.
The council wants to develop a community plan for the reserve, which has two sports fields and is home to Sunshine Park Tennis Club, Grand United Cricket Club and Albion Football Club.
The call for community feedback comes after a story in last week’s Star Weekly that highlighted the dilapidated clubrooms of Grand United, including holes in the roof, no female changeroom facilities and asbestos.
Grand United Cricket Club said last week plans to upgrade facilities in 2016-17 had been pushed back until at least 2023.
Mayor Lucinda Congreve said it was a chance for the community to tell council what it wanted to see at the reserve.
“We need your help to make the reserve better and to keep pace with the community’s changing needs,” Cr Congreve said.
“The feedback will help us to understand what will make JR Parsons Reserve more useful to the community, and a more attractive destination for leisure and recreation use.
“It will help us to develop clear directions for the future upgrade and renewal of existing facilities and spaces within the reserve and, where required, may recommend the development of a new multi-purpose sporting and community facility.”
Feedback can be provided at brimbank.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay or at Brimbank libraries or community centres until March 1.
