An unscheduled Council meeting will be held on Thursday, 26 May at 6pm. This meeting will be held virtually, with no public attendance.
This project will see the redevelopment of the existing Lions Park in Gunbower situated on the foreshore of the Gunbower Creek.
The project will include:
While the existing commemorative granite rock will remain in its current position, the tractor feature will be relocated due to space confinements. It will be placed behind the carpark area with a brand new shelter and fence surrounding it. The Gunbower Tobacco Industry interpretive sign will also be reinstalled at a new location.
The $1 million project has been supported by the Victorian State Government with $320,000 from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning Integrated Water Management Funding and $653,298 from the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions low interest Community Infrastructure Loans Scheme.
The project is being developed in stages:
Stage 1 - Concept Plan - Completed. Endorsed by Council in 2018
Stage 2 - Preliminary Design - Completed.
Stage 3 - Detailed Design - Completed.
Stage 4 - Tender - Completed.
Stage 5 - Construction - Scheduled for completion in May 2022.
