|Address||Northey Street, Victoria Street, and Cullen Street, Windsor|
|Project outcomes||The project aims to improve the active green space in the area by providing a new sports and community park and play area, along with a formal car parking area for the community.|
Council is continuing to develop plans for the park.
Land remediation works are scheduled to begin mid-May 2020.
Land remediation work
The site identified for the Windsor Sports and Community Park bordered by Northey Street, Cullen Street and Victoria Street in Windsor currently exists as open space.
Council has identified land underneath the open space contains waste materials used historically to level and fill the site. As such, Council will undertake remediation works at the site, including excavating approximately 11,000 cubic metres of fill materials under the existing surface and removing it to a licenced landfill. New, clean soil will be used to rebuild the site to existing levels and finished with grass or other appropriate covering.
In the future, Council intends to develop this site into the Windsor Sports and Community Park.
Remediation works will begin mid-May 2020 and are anticipated to take approximately 3 months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.
Works will be undertaken between 7am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, with some Saturday works required.
As part of the remediation works, Council will remove around 40 trees (mostly of non-native species) in the area. Vegetation impacts will be offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements. All work will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction. Council intends to re-plant trees as part of the future park works identified for this location. Council will retain the existing large fig tree near Victoria Street and the eucalypt near the current driveway to the informal carpark on Northey Street.
For the health and safety of both the public and site workers, works will be fenced off and closed to the public. These works will require the presence of machinery on site and will result in increased vehicle movements in the local area. Safe pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle access around the site will be maintained during the works. At times this may include minor detours. Please follow the direction of traffic controllers or site signage.
Street parking along Northey Street, Cullen Street and Victoria Street will be impacted at times, as fencing will about the kerb during the remediation works, reducing the space for car doors to open. Signs will identify affected parking spaces. Council is considering this issue during scheduling to reduce impacts as much as practicable during construction. Council will include the construction site compound and laydown area within the fenced project area to allow as much street space to be used for parking as possible and reduce the project impact on adjacent streets as much as possible.
During remediation works, the space currently being used for informal parking will no longer be available. Alternative off-street informal parking will be available on Nicholas Street during the remediation works. Council is committed to working with the local community to identify longer term parking solutions around the precinct.
Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and appreciate your patience while these important works are completed.
