Charles Mutton Reserve
Moreland City Council, Fawkner, 2017 – 2018
In 2017 Pollen Studio were asked by Moreland City Council to develop a Strategic Masterplan for the Charles Mutton Reserve in Fawkner. Home to a large and diverse sporting precinct, Pollen’s challenge was to work with Moreland City Council to develop a cohesive vision for the site’s development of the precinct over the next decade.
Pollen’s approach to this project was based on community engagement and consultation, with an understanding of the rapidly changing demographic of Fawkner. Pollen and Moreland City Council received invaluable feedback from all corners of the community during sausage sizzles and coffee cart informal chats, which ultimately shaped the Master Plan.
The final Master Plan aims at ensuring Charles Mutton Reserve remains a place for building a cohesive community. Items such facility additions to playground upgrades, as well as expanding on existing water management strategies and meeting sustainability criteria were all important factors during the Master Plan development. Pollen were honored to convert the wishes of the Fawkner community into a plan for the future of the Charles Mutton Reserve over the next decade.
