To date, the City has presented the project to the City of Rockingham Aboriginal Advisory group and will take all feedback into consideration during design and construction.
The City has consulted the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council and will meet requirements outlined by the Council during implementation stage.
The design has the footpath located on the existing verge area and is outside the envelope of the vegetation. None of the native vegetation will be affected. However, the City will still take precautionary measures to ensure none of the native vegetation will be affected during construction.
Signage will not be erected as part of this work. Signage will only be installed later according to the signage master plan which will involve a coordinated approach to their locations after detailed studies of the history, vegetation etc.
The City has liaised with the Water Corporation and will comply with the conditions outlined out in the Asset Protection - Risk Assessment Report.
Currently there are parking bays near the Vickery Street/Lake Street intersection. The City will increase the number of bays in future should the need arise.
The expected construction period is in between April 2023 to June 2023.
