Melville: decision on Peter Ellis Reserve playground delayed to 2017

RESIDENTS will have to wait for a decision on a new playground at Peter Ellis Reserve after Melville Council accepted an officers’ recommendation for a $50,000 park development planning report.

The report will explore options for a significant playground in the southeastern section of the City, in either Leeming or Bull Creek.

A 104-signature petition submitted in September 2015 calling for a new playground at Peter Ellis Reserve will be considered as part of the investigation.

City staff estimate a playground meeting the specifications of the petition would cost about $280,000.

Melville chief executive Shayne Silcox said the park development planning report would be completed in the first half of 2017.
