A draft master plan for Kyabram’s Northern Oval Recreation Reserve has been released to the publicNovember 28, 2012 4:20am
A workshop to discuss the draft master plan for Kyabram’s Northern Oval Recreation Reserve was due to take place yesterday evening.
Campaspe Shire Council invited representatives from user groups and other community members to attend the session.
Campaspe Shire Mayor Ian Maddison said the completed draft master plan was to be the centre of discussion at the workshop, with feedback to assist in finalising the plan.
The plan has considered points raised including integration of activities, improvements to the pavilion and improved access and parking.
On seeing the draft master plan for the first time, Northern Oval Committee of Management chairman John Elborough said he was looking forward to seeing work get started.
‘‘I firmly believe once it’s up and running it will take a lot of pressure off the Kyabram Recreation Reserve,’’ he said.
One potential user group the draft master plan has not been able to cater for is Kyabram Lawn Tennis Club.
Club president Mark Schumann said club representatives would attend the workshop but first impressions of the plan suggested the six tennis courts proposed would not be enough to accommodate the club’s needs.
‘‘We have just over 80 junior members and about 60 senior members and regularly have 12 to 14 courts in use at a time,’’ Mr Schumann said.
‘‘Also we require either lawn or synthetic lawn courts to play in Goulburn Murray Tennis competitions rather than the multi-purpose courts proposed for the Northern Oval.’’
The draft master plan will be on public display at the Shire’s Kyabram Customer Service Centre in Lake Rd and on the council website www.campaspe.vic.gov.au until December 5.
Residents unable to attend the workshop can comment in writing to the council.
