Council is seeking community feedback on potential sports infrastructure development opportunities at J H Allan Reserve in Keilor East.

In September 2022 Council endorsed the Moonee Valley Soccer Strategy. The strategy identified opportunities to improve sports infrastructure at J H Allan Reserve. These opportunities would help Council meet the increasing needs of community soccer clubs both now and into the future.

Council is now seeking community feedback to help determine the next steps for two potential development opportunities:

Potential new sports lighting to the eastern sports field at J H Allan Reserve
There is a current shortage of floodlit sporting facilities available for evening soccer participation within Moonee Valley. Installation of new energy-efficient LED sports lighting to achieve Football Victoria standards for community level soccer will help address this shortage. This new lighting will allow training and games to occur safely, whilst also ensuring obtrusive light spill and glare is minimised, in accordance with Australian Standards.

Potential repurposing of the western sports field at J H Allan Reserve
This initiative addresses the current shortage of soccer pitches available for community soccer clubs. It could see the repurposing of the existing cricket oval and open space for the establishment of a new synthetic grass soccer field. Associated supporting infrastructure to ensure participation can occur could also be installed. At this stage, no scoping or design work in relation to this potential development has commenced.

Further details on each of these proposals are in the FAQs section on this page. Click here to view a copy of the letter that is being circulated to residents and businesses near J H Allan Reserve.
