Draft masterplan for Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park

On Monday 15 October 2018, Council endorsed that three concept site options developed for Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park be made available for comment as part of community consultation. A report and its attachments prepared for Council are available.

In response to issues raised in a meeting with residents on Tuesday 9 October 2018, a further concept site option (3a) will be developed as a variation to concept site option 3. This additional concept site option will also be available for consultation.

Consultation is expected to start in the coming weeks. More information, including responses to frequently asked questions and a timeline for consultation, will be shared once available.

A very interesting article in Stonnnington Leader 6th September regarding the proposed indoor sports stadium at Percy Treyvaud park. Copies at the Club and on Residents Against Stadium Facebook Page

It turns out Percy Treyvaud park is subject to covenants preventing removal of soil or excavation from the site. So Council will have to seek to have the covenants lifted or modified before any work on the site can commence. What does this mean for local residents?

Well…it means that some of us may be considered “beneficiaries” of the covenants – that is, residents benefit from the existence of the covenants and to change them could result in residents (“beneficiaries”) suffering detriment. Furthermore, identified “beneficiaries” are able to object to the removal or modification of covenants. Imagine a group of residents being identified as “beneficiaries” of the covenants on Percy Treyvaud Park, all banding together to formally object to what we have known all along is inappropriate development of an area already under stress from close proximity to Chadstone Shopping Centre, with plenty of sports facilities located just on the other side of the council boundary!!!

Stay tuned…this is surely an unexpected but important development for all of us…

So someone is now listening to those who actually do the RESEARCH – The RESIDENTS! Congratulations PERCY TREYVAUD PARK and it’s current sporting activities areas significant OPEN SPACE and impact on the wider community. Percy Treyvaud is a LOCAL COMMUNITY RESOURCE
