Fencing options at Moorabbin Reserve (RSEA Park)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Background

At the September 2017 Council Meeting, Council resolved to install a relocatable fence along Doonga Avenue to meet resident requests for better access to the oval, with the fence to be installed at the beginning of football season and removed at the completion of the football season.

Since that time women's football has grown rapidly and an increasing number of match games will be played at Moorabbin Reserve. As such the relocatable fence will be in place for up to eight months a year.

Following community concerns that the relocatable fence will have no gates and restrict access for long periods of time during the women’s football season, a community petition has been lodged with Council asking for a permanent fence to be installed instead.

Council is keen to get your feedback on the two options to ensure the fence type reflects the community’s vision for how the park is used and ensure good park access is maintained.

Option 1: Relocatable fence
Install a relocatable fence along Doonga Avenue, connecting to the St Kilda Football Club pavilion. The relocatable fence would be installed each year at the beginning of the football season and removed at the completion of the season. The fence will have no gates.


Option 2: Permanent fence
Installation of a permanent fence with wide gate openings to improve access on non-match days along Doonga Avenue. The fence would be similar to the existing fence between the oval and dog-off lead area of the reserve.

Indicative images of both fence types are available in the Document Library to the right.
