Consultation has concluded

The pathway and lighting at the Clarendon Recreation Ground on Nicolle Road, Clarendon has been identified for an upgrade this financial year.

Construction for the pathway and lighting was originally scheduled to commence mid December 2019. However, due to the high temperatures we have suspended any works that may pose a fire risk . Work should begin 17 February, depending on fire conditions and other weather related events.

Tree removal will be undertaken as part of the first phase, followed by the pathway works.

Design features

The pathway and lighting upgrade will include:

  • Upgrade to the pathway from the pavilion through to the tennis and netball courts
  • Install new lighting to assist with visibility, particularly during winter months
  • Clearing of pines trees, particularly from the slope below the path to open up views and improve natural surveillance for path users
  • Selective thinning of pines trees on the north east (higher side) of pathway
  • Landscape upgrade plan to be developed and the works to be undertaken in the planting season between May-October.

Pathway access to the netball/tennis courts and amenities will be affected during construction and signage has been installed to guide court users to the use of alternate routes during this time.
