Following a successful application, the Glen Eira City council has been approved for a $650,000 grant to transform the Glen Huntly Reservoir into a more expansive sports and recreation space. This could be exciting for the local community – especially those who live in real estate in Carnegie and the surrounding suburbs.
The announcement was made on 13 October, with the application aiming to create a large park whilst retaining some of the reservoir walls and features for historical and aesthetic purposes. Glen Eira Mayor Neil Pilling said there was overwhelming demand from the public for a focus on trees, informal recreational activity areas and wide, open spaces.
"Increasing the amount of public open space is a high priority for Council and the former reservoir site will be an excellent addition to our open space network," said Mayor Pilling in a 15 October statement.
With a number of different developments occurring across the region, now could be a great time to consider buying property in the local area. Get in touch with Matt Hurlston at Ray White Carnegie to discuss the various options available to you.
