Tenders have now closed for work to deliver more elements of the Community Zone 2 and 2X (former Lathlain Carlisle Bowling Club) which includes:
an all-abilities playground and nature play area
seating and picnic facilities with shade structures
new green spaces for passive recreation
new oval gatehouse and public toilet facilities
a fenced dog exercise area
two new multi-sport courts
universal access pathways
off-street car parking to accommodate early use by Perth Football Club for WAFL season home games.
new native landscaping and revegetation - including preservation of existing trees within the development zones to sustain local wildlife.
What happens next? The tenders will be assessed by town staff and a preferred tenderer will be recommended to council for approval. Following the selection of a contractor, a detailed work plan will be developed.
Background The community-informed concept plan for the combined Zone 2 and 2X landscaping and infrastructure works was approved at the August 2017 council meeting.
Zone 2 is that part of Lathlain Park bounded by Goddard Street, McCartney Crescent and Roberts Road as delineated on the plans.
Zone 2X is the land bounded by Planet Street, Roberts Road and Bishopsgate Street, referred to as the ex-bowling greens and Tom Wright Park.
Final construction for tender about to be advertised
December 17, 2018
The detail design for zone 2 and 2X is well progressed with the final design for construction tender happening very soon. The request for tender for the combined works will be advertised in December 2018.
Zone 2 and 2X update - May 2018
May 3, 2018
The first stage of construction for Zone 2 began in February with the demolition and removal of some existing infrastructure including the old toilet block, internal fences and gates, bitumen hardstands and the cottage and outbuilding on Lot 2 (36 Goddard St).
The design consultant team contracted for Zone 2 are completing the detailed design of the area.
The design contract for Zone 2 does not include design of the new Zone 2 toilet block or Zone 2X (Tom Wright Reserve).
A Request for Tender for detailed design of Zone 2X and the Zone 2 ablutions building has been issued and will close shortly.
Once finalised, the detailed design plans for both Zone 2 and Zone 2X are planned to go to tender for construction contracts, with works anticipated to begin after the end of the 2018 WAFL football season.
The hard landscaping and building phase will be done first, followed by soft landscaping (planting of trees and plants) after summer.
