Have Your Say: French Street Reserve, Rye - Draft Masterplan
We're inviting the community to have their say on the Draft Masterplan for French Street Reserve in Rye, a 7.2-hectare parcel of land owned by Mornington Peninsula Shire and zoned as a public reserve.
This project grew out of community enthusiasm to develop and activate French Street reserve, Rye as a community space.
Community consultation was held from late 2016 to May 2017 involving 879 responses, a rich source of ideas for how to plan for community use and access to this site. Key themes to emerge from the consultation were:
The Draft Masterplan is now on public exhibition until Friday 21 December 2018.
- retention of a natural reserve: flora – fauna conservation
- outdoor education space: cultural and nature based
- passive recreation
- dog leash free area
- community events and arts
Your feedback will help us ensure the overall design is one that the community wants and needs.
