Residents are invited to participate in consultations with the City of Port Phillip in relation to the building of Montague Community Park.

Set to open in 2018, along with the South Melbourne State School, new sizing plans have been put forward by council.

The council has proposed rezoning from Capital City Zone to Public Park and Recreation Zone, and for road closures to enable expansion of the park from 3450sqm to 8400sqm.

Mayor of Port Phillip Bernadene Voss said residents could expect changes to the face of the community.

“We’re working with them through that change so we strike a balance between the interests of our community today, and the interests of our community in the future, and the delivery of the Montague Community Park is a major step in that process,” Mayor Voss said.

Consultation ends on July 22, with the opportunity for participants to speak at a council meeting on August 9.  Submissions will be assessed before a council decision on August 23.
