City of Palmerston has been awarded a land grant from the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics (DIPL), for the purpose of community infrastructure in Zuccoli.
The Crown Land is approximately 46.95 hectares, being part of Lots 12087, 4250and 4251 Town of Palmerston (20Tuckeroo Boulevard Zuccoli, 512 Stuart Highway Johnston and 575 Roystonea Avenue Zuccoli).
The proposed site is for the purpose of constructing a community hub and maintaining the Mitchell Creek corridor for conservation and passive recreation purposes.
City of Palmerston undertook further consultation with the community on its proposed concept design from Thursday 7 October - Friday 12 November 2021.
As of 14 December 2021, a report to council provided community consultation feedback. Community feedback was further considered, and where appropriate, incorporated into a final Masterplan draft, that was presented to Council via a report in February 2022 for consideration. Council endorsed proposed solutions.
The overall hub Masterplan has since received Ministerial approval.
Council are now working towards the first hub element, a regional dog park, consisting of an active dog area and quiet dog area. In February 2022, a report was presented to Council, with the final dog park plan receiving endorsement. Small alterations to the design may occur with final placement of water play areas. The dog park aims to differentiate itself from other dog parks in the municipality, with a focus on sensory activities, and is expected to be delivered in 2022.
Some preliminary clearing of the site will occur in preparation for the public tender. The tender for the dog park construction was live in April 2022 via our City of Palmerston tenders on Tenderlink. It has since closed and is now awaiting award.
