 Peachey Park Update

Due to identifying asbestos containing materials (ACM) during playground works in 2019, the City was legally obligated to cease works and seek advice from the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) and the Department of Health (DoH).

After receiving advice from these two agencies, the City was required to develop an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) to enable the management of the park and to allow safe continued public access.

DWER and the DoH have recently approved the City’s AMP and the City can now recommence works.

Please be advised that works at Peachey Park will recommence during the week of 8 June 2020.

The Peachey Park reinstatement works will include the:
  • removal of asbestos affected soil and replacement with clean fill;
  • repair of the existing bike track with additional new track features; and
  • reinstatement of the grassed area surrounding the bike track.
All works carried out on the site will be managed as per the approved AMP.

It is the City’s first priority to ensure its residents are not exposed to asbestos containing material and that people can continue safely accessing and enjoying Peachey Park.

For more information contact the City’s Parks, Leisure and Environment Department on 9477 7257.
