public open space - and has opened up the issue for comment with an online survey asking for suggestions. Campaigner Heidi Duell said a community meeting organised by the French St Project group in April was another way residents could come together to show their support for protecting the land. “There is no suggestion at this stage that the land will be used for any type of development, but we need successful community consultation to gain the use of this land for all of us.�

She said the land should be kept as an ongoing community asset and could be a “sustainable, inclusive community connection point�. Ms Duell, who ran as a council candidate in 2012, said many people had expressed their desire to see the area designated as a dog-friendly site. She said a proposal had also been submitted from a local indigenous group to base cross cultural programs, establish indigenous planting and “celebrate the interdependence of the land and its people� at the space.
