Spread the Word

Many of the local community don't know the Hosken synthetic pitch installation is scheduled to happen in Jan 2021. To save the grass oval and shared space we need to make sure everyone knows about it. Here is how you can spread the word:

Sign the Petition

Moreland has the third lowest open space per person in Melbourne and sports fields make up 1/3 of its open space. Let councillors know its reserves must be accessible to all types of users. 


Vote to Save Hosken

The following candidates pledged in 2020 to stop the synthetic pitch project and to vote for genuine consultation on the future design of Hosken Reserve. However council has since ignored recommendations of consultant reports in draft plans, electing to convert nearly all of the reserve's open space to soccer pitches, with plans to stage NPL double headers
