Soccer, or trees? Your call

In the City of Melbourne's development strategy for the park, one thing earmarked has been the further development of the area currently used as a soccer pitch (alongside the YMCA/pool and the childcare).

In order for this area to conform with the sport's regulations, a number of long-standing elms will need to be removed, to allow for the require dimensions around the pitch.

This will also fit in with the greater plan of removing the carpark, and replanting with a greater number of more drought-tolerant plants.

Have your say, by contacting the Kensington Association, or City of Melbourne direct.
