 LETTER TO MEMBERS

BURDEN PARK DRAFT MASTERPLAN JUNE 2018

The City of Greater Dandenong (CGD) recently undertook a public consultation process in order to develop a 10 year Master Plan for the whole of Burden Park including the Bowling Club.
The Council has now released a Concept Plan based on community feedback and advice from consultants. This Concept Plan is now available for further community feedback up to 15th August 2018 before being presented to Council.


It is important to note that this is only a Concept Plan and not an Implementation Plan.

At this stage, there is no detailed timetable for implementation or costing of projects or any priorities.


The broad proposals of the Concept Plan include:-


• Increased parking capacity within Burden Park with better access to the Park from 3 sides instead of just Heatherton Road.
• Restricted vehicle access through the park to improve safety and utilisation of the Park.
• Expansion of the number of toilet and BQQ facilities.
• Plant more trees and improved pathways
• More casual sporting equipment e.g. basketball court, fitness equipment a multi-purpose area for soccer, volleyball etc.

Impact on Burden Park Bowling Club

The good news for members is that the Council is still prepared to support the Bowling Club at Burden Park and maintain the Club House.

While the implementation of this Concept Plan will have a significant impact on the shape and size of the Bowling Club over the next 10 years there are also potential opportunities to expand our membership, improve the amenities of the club, make it more visible and reduce operating costs.

The main proposals impacting on the Bowling Club Include:-

• Construction of car park (75 places) along the northern boundary of Club. (No.11)
• Restriction of vehicle access to internal road within Park. (Install barriers). (No. 10)
• Construction of multi- purpose area on the former Croquet Club site with synthetic surface and multiply lines. (No. 3)
• Conversion of Green No 3 into car park (21 places) with left turn access from and into Springvale Road. (No. 4 & 31)
• Existing Club house to be assessed to ascertain if new building required or upgrades are suitable. (No. 5)

 Members are encouraged to review the Concept Plan on the Council web site or in the club rooms and provide feedback to the Board of Management by Friday 10th August 2018, on any issues to be addressed, so that the Club can provide a consolidated response before the Master Plan is submitted to the Council for approval
