Background

In May 2018 Council approved the Conyngham Street Depot Master Plan with construction scheduled to commence in 2018/19. The Master Plan design incorporated input from the community provided through the community consultation process. 

See an artist's impression of the site below. For more information about the Master Plan or for a detailed design view of the building click here

An operational Council Depot will be retained at the site, separated from the community spaces in the design. 

What will be constructed? 

A vibrant community space. The redeveloped site will feature a Men's Shed, Biodiversity Conservation Nursery, Community Garden, outdoor plaza area, storage and a reconfigured Council Depot. Off-street car parking, toilet amenities, a bike repair station and a shared kitchen will also be available for site users. 

What will happen during construction? 

Council has engaged a contractor, BluBuilt, to undertake the construction works. These works include the demolition and removal of all existing structures and services, the removal of existing plants and trees on site, earthworks, soil removal, excavation and levelling for the foundations of the new buildings and facilities. 

Eight street trees (Crepe Myrtles) are located adjacent to this site. Three Crepe Myrtles will be removed to accommodate the new driveway. 

All materials from the demolition will be transported off site to an appropriate waste facility. 

A car park, Depot facilities, a service road, access ramps, paving and landscaping will also be constructed during these works. 

Council does not anticipate a heavy increase in traffic demands as a result of this construction. 

Residents will notice workers and vehicles on the site and trucks on Conyngham Street to Greenhill Road. 

Every effort will be made to minimise dust and noise during construction. 

The hours of work will be Monday to Friday from 7 am - 5 pm. There may be an occasional requirement for work to be undertaken on Saturdays from 7 am - 3 pm. Should this take place noisy work activities will not commence until 8 am.
