CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • Your information sheet states that Council has budgeted $4 million for work to commence in mid 2014 and that the estimated cost of completing the work "is in the order of $8 million". Given that no such provision appears in the Council budget for 2013-14, upon which the rate was struck, where is this money coming from and what projections have been amde regarding costs exceeding $8 million?

    Thank you for your question. Provision has been made within the 2013-14 budget to commence the first stage of works, funds are included in Council’s Long Term Financial Plan and subject to annual approval budget will be applied to realise the total construction budget. Hopefully this answers your question.
  • Will there be car parking for handicapped persons, particularly for aged residents like myself who cannot now walk to the beach or square. After living here for over 40 years and enjoyed walking to and on the beach I now cannot walk to the beach but must use transport.

    Hi there - thank you for your question. Im pleased to let you know that disabled car parking provision will be increased, this will form part of the first stage of works and the reconfiguration of the car park.
  • Will the tired old trees/shrubs in the square and around the carpark be removed and replaced with more modern looking palms like at the Grange Jetty carpark? Thanks from Mark.

    Hi Mark - thank you for your question. Works within the car park will be required as part of the first stage to reconfigure the car park to facilitate the new design, this will include landscape works and removal of the old trees and shrubs. At this stage the exact species that will be planted is still to be determined, however we can confirm that Palms are not proposed for planting in this location.
  • Good afternoon, How often is the council willing to provide workers to maintain the cleanliness of the facility? I am concerned for hygiene with the instalment of the tidal pool and general chewing gum/ice cream, sand, rubbish, sea gull/bird deposits. What thought has gone into the filtering/service of this water feature?

    Hi Trent - thank you for your question. In response: Council recognises that Henley Square is a high quality space and will be maintained to a standard reflective of this high quality environment. Consideration has been given to the filtration and maintenance of the water features, therefore we are currently working with the designer and water feature specialist to ensure that any issues are addressed through the design of the feature and the filtration system. Consideration is also being given to water efficiency and minimising water usage. A great question! Hopefully you find this information helpful.
  • Hi, Can you elaborate on the future light rail plans? Where will it run and what roads will the tracks be laid on? Thanks, Mark.

    Public transport is a long term goal structured around the State Government's 30 year plan, any changes to light rail/public transport will be delivered by the State Government. The inclusion within the concept is demonstrate the flexibility of the design and to ensure that future strategies and long term gaols are considered throughout the design process.
