DECISION TO REVERSE REZONING OF RYAN’S RESERVE

After further consideration and listening to the views of the local community, I have decided to reverse the rezoning so that Ryan’s Reserve can remain as a netball facility.

I have rezoned 510 Swan Street back to a Public Park and Recreation Zone. These planning controls now ensure that commercial and residential development is not permitted on the site.

Importantly, the Government will continue to deliver nine new netball courts across Richmond – four at the new Richmond High School, three at Melbourne Girls College and two at Richmond West Primary School.

Combined with Ryan’s Reserve, these new developments will deliver substantially improved netball facilities in Richmond.

We have heard the views of the community and have acted.
