Council Ready to Build Lutwyche Park After Property Resumptions

Lutwyche will soon have its new park after Council voted in favour of resuming the last of ten properties needed to deliver the new Chalk Street Park. 

The proposed 6,900-sqm urban recreation park is bounded by Chalk, Marita, and Wellington Streets in Lutwyche and comprises 10 lots, with the last of the required block to be acquired by the Council via land resumption.

Under the concept plan, the Chalk Street Park will include a gathering space with new picnic shelters, electric barbecues, and accessible drinking fountain; new playground equipment; open space; pathway; bollard to park boundary; shade tree planting; and pathway and streetscape planting. 

However, public toilets, carpark, or dog off-leash area, which are beyond the scope of the park’s classification, will not be provided in this park.

Residents are invited to have their say about the proposals through the Council’s online survey to help the Council understand how residents would like to use the proposed new park or which elements of the reserve they would like to see enhanced or included.
