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:

  • 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
The Draft Masterplan is now on public exhibition until Friday 21 December 2018.

Your feedback will help us ensure the overall design is one that the community wants and needs.
