On Wednesday 14 August, a progress update was provided to Lathlain neighbours whose residences front onto the park on Bishopsgate Street, Goddard Street, McCartney Crescent, and Roberts Road, and also those fronting the old bowling green site on Planet Street and Bishopsgate Street.
The points that were shared were:
Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment journey kicked off in earnest in 2014.
Community engagement for Zone 2, Community Activity, occurred in 2016.
The community informed concept plan for Zone 2, including the extended area of the ex-bowling greens and Tom Wright Reserve, was approved by Council resolution in August 2017.
Detail design consultants were contracted in early 2018, to prepare plans and documents based upon the approved concept plans.
The detail design was delivered by the consultants in December that year.
Zone 2 and 2X works tender closed in February 2019.
Contract was executed and site possession made available to the contractor in June 2019.
Their project schedule programs to have the contracted works complete prior to Christmas 2019.
There will be other project activities within the zone that will follow the contracted works, such as the public art installation.
Attached is a gallery of plans taken from the tender document showing proposed works for Zones 2 and 2X.
Dog exercise area to temporarily close
May 30, 2019
The LPRP Zone 2X project works are about to start which means the dog exercise area at Tom Wright Park will be temporarily closed.
The Town has arranged an alternative temporary enclosed off-lead dog exercise area in John Bissett Park (on the corner of Miller St and Beatty Ave, just across the railway bridge).
This will occur in the next few weeks, and during the move there will be a few days where no enclosed dog area will be available. Please check this website for follow up details.
