Basketball half court approved for Redlynch park

Council has approved for the construction of basketball half court at Salli and John Mitchell Park in Redlynch to be considered in future budget deliberations.

A petition tabled at the Council Ordinary Meeting in January, requested for the construction of the basketball half court to be reconsidered.

A similar proposal for this park – which contains play and fitness equipment, seating, pathways and landscaping – was considered several years ago but did not progress due to some community objection.

Community consultation was undertaken for a two-week period in March 2020, with 63 letters sent to residents in the vicinity, with four responses received by Council – one objecting to the proposal, one neutral and two supportive.
