Mount Pleasant Bowling Club Redevelopment

The City of Melville is starting to plan the future of the Mount Pleasant Bowling Club site at 40 Bedford Road, Ardross.

The Mount Pleasant Bowling Club might be moving to the new lawn bowls facility at Tompkins Park in the future. The move was recommended by the City’s Lawn Bowls Strategy, which was adopted by Council in October 2016. 

Council supported the concept of redeveloping the Mount Pleasant Bowling Club site (in principle) at a Special Meeting held on 28 November 2016 and engaging with the community on the future of the site.

The first step is to engage with the community and seek feedback on the most appropriate way to redevelop the site in future. This information will help the City prepare a concept plan or plans, which would be advertised for public comment later in 2017.

The site belongs to the State Government. The City may have an opportunity to purchase the site following the relocation of the bowling club if it can establish a good business case.

The idea is to create a new public park, which would be funded by a housing development on some of the site. Doing so would provide a new local park without adding to your council rates. The intent is that all revenue raised by a redevelopment will be used to fund new recreational and community infrastructure, such as:

  • a new public park on the site
  • local streetscape upgrades
  • upgrades to Shirley Strickland Reserve (only 600 metres away) and other public facilities

The park/housing concept is very general at the moment as this is only the first stage of the planning process and community engagement. There are no formal plans at the moment. We’d very much value your thoughts and ideas.
