Re­lo­cate play equip­ment

Great Southern Herald - - News - Saskia Adysti

The Shire of Katan­ning is look­ing for an in­ter­ested lo­cal group to un­der­take some work be­fore the re­de­vel­op­ment of the All Ages Play­ground starts.

The Shire is seek­ing a not-for­profit group to re­move the chil­dren’s play equip­ment tem­po­rar­ily from the fenced area on Clive Street into Prosser Park.

Shire chief ex­ec­u­tive Ju­lian Mur­phy said the coun­cil was hop­ing it could be a per­fect fundrais­ing op­por­tu­nity for the club.

“We would like to give the op­por­tu­nity to lo­cal com­mu­nity groups that might have some vol­un­teer time and labour to do the work,” he said. Mr Mur­phy said the Shire will also help with labour as well as equip­ment hire for a ne­go­ti­ated ser­vice fee.

Work in the re­de­vel­op­ment of All Ages Play­ground, Skate Park and Li­ons Park is sched­uled to start in Jan­uary.

The plan will in­volve a com­plete re­build of the All Ages Play­ground, new land­scap­ing and new park­ing ar­eas as well as an ex­ten­sion for the Skate Park.

“We will be ad­ver­tis­ing for a ten­der for the Wel­come Precinct project at the end of this month,” he said.

“There will be more de­tails on that once we get the ten­der doc­u­ments ready to go.”
