Projects & works

Introduction

The Capital Works Program has been developed to meet anticipated community infrastructure needs and the future development of the Town to align with the strategic plan, driven by population growth, requirements of the community and asset management.  These works include footpath replacement, traffic management treatments and road re-sheeting works among other minor capital works.

Major projects

Claremont Museum Redevelopment 

The Town's Claremont Museum was closed in January 2017 in preparation for an upgrade. The closure facilitated a major review of the Town's collection and planning for the new facility.

Consultation of neighbouring residents and stakeholder groups has led to the development of a concept plan for the museum site.

The project involves upgrading the existing office, museum building and carpark as well as replacing the storage building and renovating the public toilets facility.

Redevelopment of the Claremont Museum is scheduled to commence on Monday 25 January, 2021.
Mrs Herbert's Park, the playground and foreshore access will remain open for use by members of the community. Most of the carpark will be fenced for use by the construction company whilst construction is underway. Designated public parking will be permitted on the upper grassed area for this period.

Claremont McKenzie Pavilion Redevelopment Project

The Town would like to advise that the redevelopment of the McKenzie Pavilion is scheduled to commence with the works zone fencing being erected from 2 March 2021.

Consultation undertaken with the two major claremont sporting clubs that use the facility in 2017 indetified the need to redevlop the entire facility in order to bring it up to modern standards and make it a viable space for long term use with a particular focus of adding dedicated female facilities.

The demolition of the old structure is now complete with the base now laid for redevelopment works which are scheduled to be completed before Christmas 2021.
