Playground Upgrade- Tantallon Boulevard, Beaconsfield (Panorama Estate)
Work is progressing well on the delivery of the playground renewal at the Tantallon Boulevard retention basin reserve within the Panorama Estate in Beaconsfield.
Two rounds of community consultation were undertaken to determine the final design.
Initially, council officers attended the Beaconsfield Children’s Hub to get feedback on the designs from the kindergarten aged children and also emailed the options to community members who had requested to be kept informed in relation to this project (through the first survey) to obtain feedback on the designs. After combining the feedback from the community and Council officer review (as the votes were very close) it was determined that the selected design provided the best play value across all ages.
The installation of the new playground is expected to be completed by April, 2020.
Kenilworth Avenue update
Kenilworth Avenue Stage 2 works have started. The road and drainage works as part of this stage are being carried out by Council and have been designed to continue the first section of sealed road, which is being constructed by developers. Stage 2 extends from the freeway overpass to Coach House Lane, and will include public lighting and a shared path.
Both Stage 1 and 2 are expected to be completed by June 2020.
Have you seen the new sign in Beaconsfield?
Council has installed a new sign in Beaconsfield-Emerald Road that displays vital safety messaging for community members and tourists. During the Fire Danger Period, the sign will alert travellers of the current restrictions in the shire and outside the Fire Danger Period, the sign will be converted to display a combination of road safety and fire safety messages.
The project is a joint initiative of Council, CFA, Victoria Police, Road Safe South East and VicRoads, and was funded by RoadSafe South East, CFA and VicRoads.
Neighbour Day is being held on Sunday 29 March.
