SAVE THE MORDIALLOC SPORTING CLUB
We call on all relevant parties to save the more than 150 years of history in Mordialloc, to save live music, local heritage and to Save the Mordialloc Sporting Club for generations to come!
Many local residents have raised their concerns about the proposed development of the Mordialloc Sporting Club, and how this may impact on live music, local heritage and our community.
The Mordialloc Sporting Club, was started as the Mordialloc Hotel and originally built by Alexander Macdonald back in 1853. At one stage it even operated as a coach office, with four horse coaches running from Melbourne to Frankston daily.
The hotel has evolved since its early days, into the live music venue and community pub that we know and treasure today.
However, the latest proposal to develop the site with townhouse apartments has raised the strong concerns of our local community and the more than 10,000 social members.
Residents fear that yet another vibrant live music venue and community meeting place will be greatly reduced and lost. We have already seen this devastating impact up the road at Mentone Hotel, known as The Edgy.
The loss of yet another local pub and live music venue will be a devastating blow. People are asking how this proposal is in the community’s best interests and why social club members have not been consulted.
We MUST preserve the buildings that have stood as community meeting places across the decades. If we are to let these precious buildings go, we lose a bit of ourselves and our local identity.
Any proposal to change the Mordialloc Sporting Club MUST seek the views of our community, the more than 10,000 social members and local sporting clubs, including the Mordialloc Football Netball Club.
