Consultation has concluded

Mullum Mullum Project Timeline

The proposed Mullum Mullum Reserve Stadium is a key feature of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan 2014, which also includes improvements to pedestrian and cycling paths, car parking and landscaping at Mullum Mullum Reserve in Donvale in and around the reserve.

The highly anticipated Mullum Mullum Reserve Stadium will provide a boost for local sporting clubs in Manningham, with five new indoor sports courts.

The stadium will help to address the shortage of indoor court space in Manningham and will cater for a range of sports including basketball, netball, badminton, table tennis and volleyball.

The development also includes a cafe, amenities, function rooms and administration facilities. A new car park, adjacent the stadium, will also be constructed to ensure that the stadium complements the existing facilities in the reserve.

Planning approval for the stadium was received in January 2016, and it is anticipated that construction will commence in September/October this year, with the stadium opening in mid 2018.

This has included bulk earthworks, the installation of underground stormwater drainage and electrical conduits to supply future public lighting, and the construction of retaining walls.

    Over the coming weeks, concrete kerb and channel and asphalt pavement will be constructed at the roundabout and new carpark sites, the earth temporarily stored at the southern end of the reserve will be removed and works will shift focus to the widening of the Springvale Road entrance into the reserve.

    Currently, the Springvale Road entrance to the reserve remains closed with traffic diversions and signage in place. The Reynolds Road entrance to the reserve remains open and restricted vehicle and pedestrian access arrangements are in place throughout the reserve carpark. Visitors to the reserve are reminded to follow any signage and detours that are in place and to be aware of increased vehicle movements at the reserve.

    Subject to favourable weather conditions, it is anticipated that these works within the reserve will be completed during May 2016.

    For more information on the works, please call Council’s Strategic Projects Unit on 9846 0588.

    • Landscaping works, including planting along the southern boundary and Springvale Road frontage
    • Installation of prototype stormwater treatment rain gardens (a trial in collaboration with Melbourne Water)
    • Upgrade of public lighting.

    These management plan works are funded by Council and with grants from Melbourne Water and the Victorian Taxi Directorate.

    The works have been designed to have as little impact as possible on visitors of the reserve.

    These works are being undertaken ahead of the proposed construction of the stadium, and associated car park at the reserve later this year to reduce the impact on reserve users. During this construction there will still be minor impacts on access into and around the reserve and on the availability of car parking. Traffic management and signage will be put in place to inform reserve users of the changes.

    These works will ensure that the reserve continues to provide opportunities for recreational use by the community.
