Have your say on future Haining Farm facilities

Friday 31 August, 2018

Community information session on Saturday 8 September 2018.

Parks Victoria, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), and the Haining Farm Implementation Working Group are inviting the community to attend a drop-in information session on Saturday 8 September 2018 to provide input into future improvements planned for Haining Farm.

The community drop in session will offer updates on the current works and the opportunity to provide feedback on detailed designs for proposed future improvements including the Woodland buffer, visitor facilities such as the play space and potential community activities in the reserve.

There will also be an opportunity to tour works that are currently underway to construct wetlands in the north-west of Haining Farm which is currently fenced off to allow the construction to proceed safely.

The community drop in session will be held from 2:00pm until 4:00pm on Saturday 8 September 2018 at Haining Farm, Don Road, Don Valley.

For those unable to attend the community drop in session there is an opportunity to view the concept plans and provide feedback online until the submission period closes on the 14 September 2018.

The Haining Farm Concept Plan was released by DELWP and Parks Victoria in September 2017.

Quotes attributable to Parks Victoria Executive Director Melbourne Craig Stubbings:  

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a new public space and it’s important that the community helps to shape the future of Haining Farm for the long-term benefit of the local community and future generations.”

“We would like to encourage the community to make the most of the opportunity and get involved and let us know your thoughts on visitor facilities, the Woodland buffer and also any community ideas about the types of community activities in the reserve longer term.”
