The West Coast Eagles and Wirrpanda Foundation will soon call the Town of Vic Park home. Tell us how you think the community might benefit most from our new partnership.
We are developing a Community Benefits Strategy and we want your views on draft project proposals to be included and where you think we should focus the most. View our program examples and share your thoughts at https://yourthoughts.victoriapark.wa.gov.au/cbs.
You can also talk to us at the Vic Park Farmers’ Markets on Sundays and other advertised pop-up events around Town until 12 November 2018.
Parking on Tom Wright Reserve
May 3, 2018
To ease street parking pressures around the Lathlain Park works, the Town has allowed the construction contractor for Zone 2, business hours parking access on Zone 2X for sub-contractor tradespeople and site staff. This arrangement will be in place until on-site parking becomes available as construction progresses.
West Coast Eagles construction update
May 3, 2018
The West Coast Eagles and Wirrpanda Foundation training, administration and community facility is advancing quickly.
Much of the concrete base has been poured and the waterproof membrane to the aquatic area has been applied, enabling some back-filling of sand from the stockpile to begin. Construction of the facility remains on track for completion in early 2019.
Landscaping works will be done once construction of the administration facility is complete to avoid any damage to the new trees or plants during that construction period. The landscaping within the lease boundary will be managed by West Coast Eagles and includes the planting of replacement trees as part of the forward works development application approval given to West Coast Eagles, which stipulates the trees removed during the forward works be replaced at a ratio of 6:1.
Majority of these replacement trees will be planted within the lease boundary area, with more to be planted in surrounding parks and streets over a four-year planting program.
