Arden-Macaulay Structure Plan consultation

While attending a presentation by GAMUT on the new Melbourne Metro1 Rail project, a representative from the City of Melbourne was mentioning how it fit in with their long-term plans for the Arden area.

In addition to using that area for residential development, they are also wanting to develop it as a CBD-edge area, with small business and white-collar jobs, as well as the beautification of Moonee Ponds Creek, and the potential to increase that with reclaiming some of the surrounds as parkland.

That REALLY pricked my ears up.

If you want to get involved, take a look at http://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/getinvolved/StructurePlans/ArdenMacaulay/Pages/Information.aspx and get along to the briefing they're holding next Wednesday.

Soccer Pitch getting closer

I'd imagine the rains have been hampering their efforts, however the levels of layered pebbles/grit/sand/etc are now getting to the point where they are only just below the concrete surround/guttering.

To the casual observer, I think the fake turf will be going down quite soon.
