Statement from Mayor Cr Paula Piccinini
Manningham Council is actively working with the North East Link Project (NELP) authority to ensure that any impacted sporting ovals are offset within Manningham, and so there is minimal impact to the operations of clubs affected by the project.
Interim arrangements are currently being worked through with the Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL), NELP and neighbouring Councils to find a suitable home for the club during construction of the North East Link (NEL) project.
Council’s preference is to retain Bulleen Park for use by AFL and Cricket once construction on the NEL project has finalised.
