A significant number of University Sporting Clubs operate in facilities in the City of Melbourne either at Princes or Royal Park. The City of Melbourne has prepared a draft Open Space Strategy to provide an overarching framework and strategic direction for open space planning for the next 15 years. As part of the preparation of the Open Space Strategy, a consultation process has occurred including the development of the Princes Park Master Plan.
As a critical area for Sporting Clubs and the broader University community a submission was prepared and submitted by MU Sport. A draft copy of the Princes Park Master Plan has been released recently and a Sports Forum called by the MCC to discuss the plan with University of Melbourne Clubs involved was held in August 2012.
