The City of Casey is committed to restoring the Ercildoune Court Reserve and Homestead in Cranbourne West, through balancing the use and activation of this space with its heritage protection.

In August 2019, approximately 30 people attended a community information session on the site and approximately 60 people participated in the Phase 1 engagement process, including residents of Allarah Estate and adjoining properties. Review the Summary Report.

During the community consultation, the feedback offered key concepts which have be considered in the site’s revitalisation, including:

  • Preserve green space
  • Reflecting the heritage (historical information related to culture and heritage.
  • Places for connection (picnic space, seating)
  • Opportunities for learning – (community garden)

The landscaping concepts have been designed based on feedback provided by the community, and funds have already been allocated to complete those works, pending another round of community consultation. So now it is your time to make sure we have got it right.

The intention is to complete the restoration works to the homestead when funds become available through Council’s capital works program or through government grants.

All feedback received from the community will be considered in preparing the options for the site.

    While Ercildoune Court Reserve needs to be restored in keeping with heritage and local land use requirements, we invite ideas to encourage community use of the facility and surrounding land. We want to create an experience that invites community participation and enjoyment of the site.

    Ercildoune Court Reserve refers to both the reserve and the homestead.
