Update on South Lawson Park upgrade - 2 February 2022
The upgrade of South Lawson Park has been paused.
The upgrade, which includes construction of accessible path, a new fenced off leash dog area and nature play area has been impacted by various challenges since December including higher than average rainfall that has affected sediment control measures on site, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected staffing and the delivery of materials.
The pause will allow further community consultation to be conducted on fencing, the shared path and other features, including plans for bush regeneration that will increase the edge of the riparian zone to better protect Lawson Creek and Adelina Falls.
Sediment controls have been improved at the site over the past two weeks following intense storms and persistent wet weather, and further controls will be implemented over the coming days and monitored, to ensure run-off from the construction site does not affect waterways.
