Melbourne’s iconic Princes Park in Carlton North is a major sports and recreation ground, home to sporting clubs, and features open space with playgrounds, picnic facilities and some of Melbourne’s most significant trees.
Our proposal to harvest excess stormwater from the Moonee Ponds Creek will protect this valuable open space from the impacts of future drought. It will also improve the health of the creek by removing excess stormwater and pollution.
This project is part of our Climate and Biodiversity Emergency response and will enable us to adapt to the impacts of climate change and improve water quality and green spaces. The project will also contribute to Sustainable Development Goals.We asked the community to review the benefits and impacts of the proposal and provide feedback via an online survey. The feedback will inform the next stage of the detailed design process.
