About the project
Council is replacing the existing oval fencing and installing new training net lights and temporary storage at Eric Raven Reserve.
- The existing oval perimeter fencing at the northern end of the oval to the western side of the training nets is too small to be effective in preventing cricket and lacrosse balls from leaving the ground. The new fencing will improve public safety and reduce the risk of damage to surrounding biodiversity zones.
- The net training lights will improve conditions for organised sportsground users. The lights will only be used in conjunction with sportsground lights which, for the 2019 winter season, will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 5pm and 8:30pm.
- A temporary storage unit will occupy three car parking bays at Eric Raven Reserve whilst Council explores options for the permanent storage at the pavilion.
There will not be any changes to the usage of Eric Raven Reserve and you will still be able to access and use the oval.
The community may notice some contractors working on site while these works are being undertaken.
