    about 1 month ago

    The City in conjunction with the Swanbourne Coastal Alliance and the Friends of Allen Park received a grant from the Western Australian Planning Commission through the Coastwest Grants Program 2019/20 to undertake Swanbourne Oval Greenway Development – Stage 1.

    This project is being undertaken in accordance with the Allen Park Masterplan and Swanbourne Oval refurbishment works. The project will covert the northern part of Swanbourne Beach Oval to coastal bushland (approximately 2.4 Ha) as well as undertake ongoing restoration of adjacent coastal areas within Allen Park. It will involve site preparation in April/May, followed by installation of certified mulch in May and revegetation with 5500 low growing locally occurring native shrubs and ground covers in June and July.

    The project will assist with the City’s aims of protecting biodiversity, providing improved habitats, connectivity for local fauna and increasing the City’s capacity to absorb greenhouse gas emissions.

    Objectives

    • Increase the integrity of the coastal corridor by developing and enhancing ecological linkages to adjacent coastal areas north and south in Cottesloe and Cambridge;
    • Enhance the existing greenway corridor at Allen Park by increasing the area of bushland in the Reserve;
    • Removal of invasive weeds;
    • Revegetation with local provenance native seedlings;
    • Maintenance of public access such as beach fencing;
    • Improvement of bushland condition;
    • Reducing erosion;
    • Increasing habitat of fauna such as the resident White-winged and Chestnut Fairy-wrens
    • Strengthening two regional greenways - the coastal greenway and the Bold Park to Kings Park Greenway
    • Protection of environmental values and biodiversity within the coastal zone;
    • Increasing the atheistic quality of the area; and
    • Building capacity by involving the community.

    The northern path access between Seaward Village and the beach carpark stairs is now open for public use, however, there is currently restricted width to facilitate the irrigation and surface preparation of the playing field.

    Previously the City requested your feedback on a proposal to change Beatrice Road into a cul-de-sac and create a new intersection. The redundant road pavement would be removed and replaced with turf and the adjoining crossovers would be extended.

    Based on the feedback received, the City has decided not to proceed with the proposed design. To address the safety issues, the City is working with Main Roads WA to install new line marking and signage to improve the intersection.
