Council and contractors will endeavour to minimise disruption to users and uses of the Precinct as is practical to do so. Implementation of works will where possible, occur in sections of the Precinct to minimise disruption.
Given that this will be a construction site, access to the precinct will be restricted through fencing, signage and other barriers to ensure the safety of workers and the community. The community are required to adhere to any work site instructions. Any questions or concerns in relation to the works should be directed to Council via the contact details given below.
It is not anticipated that there will be any major disruption to the operation of the Bowls Club or the community pool unless this is deemed necessary by Council for safety, access or other reasons. These disruptions will be communicated by Council to the Bowls Club and Pool Committee representatives directly at the earliest opportunity.
It should be noted that as part of Stage 1 Civil Works, the current playground will be decommissioned and demolished. This will make way for new footpaths, gardens, and access from new car parking spaces in Eversley Street.
Whilst Council appreciates the loss of a playground is not ideal in the short term, we would encourage residents to enjoy the other public open space areas in Macarthur for play and recreation. Installation plans and designs for new playspace equipment in the new playspace zone are currently being sought from a range of providers.
The two banner poles on the western edge of the precinct will also be removed under the works. It is planned to improve signage, lighting and information boards as part of future works.
