A number of improvements have been developed for the following areas within the precinct and we now seek your preferences.

  • Area 2: Parking area in front of Cellarbrations Liquor Barn
  • Area 3: Asquith Street (Strickland to Adderley Street)
  • Area 4: 25 Strickland Street
  • Area 5: Olearia Lane (rear of 25 Strickland Street)
  • Area 6: Road Reservation (Asquith Street from Mayfair Street to the Golf Club rear entrance)

  • Green spaces and parking bays

    9 months ago
    Asquith park near shopping centre

    A number of people are concerned about the loss of green space if Asquith Park is converted to a car park or part of a car park. The City's preferred options would result in additional green spaces, particularly if Asquith Park is converted to a car park. There is potentially an additional 257m2 of green space being provided which includes all three sites.

    In regard to increased parking bays there is potentially an additional 25 parking bays, depending on the community preferences.

    The proposals are in response to the City receiving numerous requests and a petition from the Mt Claremont community to address parking needs in this area. As a result, funds have been set aside as part of our 2018-19 capital works program.

    The survey responses will inform the final proposal and help prioritise budget allocations for the works presented to Council.

    The City wants to ensure it selects the best options for the area and our community consultation is an integral part of that. We understand it’s a fine balance between parking and other needs in the area, which is why several proposals have been devised to ensure a range of options can be explored with the community.
