About the Lathlain Precinct
The Lathlain Precinct has long been identified by the Town as an area for enhancement and revival. The Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project (LPRP) is now in the Town’s Strategic Community Plan as a priority project. There are eight project zones that make up the LPRP that will undergo redevelopment and/or revitalisation.
The project will be delivered by the Town in partnership with the West Coast Eagles and the Perth Football Club. This partnership aims to set new standards in the delivery of an active community sports complex and substantial community benefits to the people of Lathlain, and the broader community.
This website will provide information and updates on the project as they happen. We will be adding to the website frequently, and you can be alerted to new information if you subscribe to the eNewsletter at the bottom of this page.
Works to begin in Zone 2
Concept plans for Zone 2 and 2X were endorsed by Council in August and included the vision for active and passive recreation spaces with facilities and amenities for all to enjoy.
The first stage of construction will be demolition and removal of some existing infrastructure. Council has awarded a demolition contract to a qualified contractor and the works are expected to be completed by the end of February 2018.
Work on WCE Training, Administration and Community Centre to begin
Perkins Builders have recently been appointed as the main building contractor for the construction of the new West Coast Eagles Training, Administration and Community Facility at Lathlain Park.
Construction on the site has started, with some forward works happening over the past week. Within the next few weeks, construction will begin in earnest.
Sod-turning and works update
Both Oval 1 and Oval 2 continue to develop as the turf establishes critical root structure. With a well-earned rest after the 2017 WAFL season, the turf on Oval 1 will strengthen over the coming summer months. With Oval 2 reaching full coverage, the Demons will be able to share the load on both ovals as the grass is nursed through to maturity.
