Perhaps the playground could be like at Cramer St where they cut into the corner of the ground and put a little park. Maybe they're planning to put something for the community on the corner where the hill is...who knows.
Councils have funny ideas at the best of times!!!
[quote=MinkaBeaver]That said, I'd love to know what this means:
"â€¢ Provide for future sustainability of both Port Melbourne Football Club and Port Melbourne Cricket Club"
"â€¢ Increase use and accessibility by the public through improving both visual and physical permeability from the public realm into the venue, thereby increasing the attractiveness of the reserve as a public open space"[/quote]
You obviously need a course of "Yes Minister" or "Grass Roots" to get a handle on the lingo.
It's quite clear what it means, isn't it? ;)

Clear as mud, and probably deliberately too so as to quell any high hopes.
Sir Humphrey Appleby would be very proud.
From what Ive been told quite a while ago, the aim is to change the surrounding areas at Teac Oval. Eg The Fencing that runs along Willy road and Ingles Street. They want the ground to look more inviting and attractive.They hope by opening it up more it will get more people to attend games and look more family friendly.
John Hook was interviewed on SEN regarding the possibilty of improved lighting at Port Melbourne amongst a range of other topics.. link here:
Chipmunks? Or is it just my computer?
East Bendigo???? Oh dear, John do your research before you go on the radio!!!
According to Hook they would love to have night matches at Teac Oval but the cost of lighting would be huge.
They also want Frankston in the comp as they are an importerd link with so many Stingray players that progress through to Frankston and cover a large area of the Mornington Peninsula. The burtn stand has cost the club plenty.
Don't be surprised if there is at least one game at a fire ravage town next season. Not sure where but it could be Whittlesea, Kinglake or another ground in the region.
Also talk of Williamstown will play a few games in the country. Williamstown will not be playing home games at Point Gellibrand as the ground is unavailable due to works. They will play home games at Western Oval/Whitten Oval Footscray. Maybe a game at Warrnambool's Reid Oval or Colac, Terang or even Geelong West's old bicycle track ground. Good for nostalgia.
Albury are also keen for vfl action whether it is a team that are aligned there similar to Murray Kangaroos or to have a team in the vfl.
The redevelopment of North Port Oval seems to have gone quiet again. I thought the plans had to be finalised by October (council announcement earlier this year).
* It's time to restore the VFA name.
what about at least whats happening with the state gov funding which was already budgeted?
