Background

Morris Reserve is a single oval reserve, set in a densely populated residential area in Pascoe Vale South. The reserve offers both passive and active recreation opportunities including:

  • football/cricket oval with a turf table and synthetic wicket
  • sporting pavilion
  • cricket practice nets
  • scout hall
  • public toilet block
  • playground, and
  • a small sealed car park.

Morris Reserve is seasonally allocated in the summer to West Coburg Softball Club, the West Coburg Cricket Club and the West Coburg Football Club in the winter.

The facilities at Morris Reserve are functionally obsolete for contemporary sporting club needs and community expectations. At the June 2011 Council meeting, Council resolved the West Coburg and Pascoe Vale South Precinct Needs Analysis (2011) that identified the need for master planning of Morris Reserve in conjunction with the West Coburg Sports Club and other stakeholders.

ASR Research were appointed to undertake the Morris Reserve Redevelopment Master Plan (PDF) (PDF 3Mb).

At its meeting on 8 February 2017 Council endorsed Option 2 of the Draft Morris Reserve Master Plan (PDF 671Kb) for community consultation.

Consultation

Council is committed to working with its partners, including local sporting groups, schools, State Sporting Associations, and the local community.

The Draft Morris Reserve Master Plan (PDF 671Kb) is on public consultation until 19 May 2017. The final Morris Reserve Master Plan will be presented to a future Council meeting for consideration.
