Over the past few months the City of Belmont has been working on site investigations relating to Peachey Park and has been in consultation with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) and the Department of Health (DoH) regarding the asbestos containing materials (ACM) that were found on site.
The City has been asked to prepare additional documentation to support the resolution of this matter, which will include a management plan for the site. The City is preparing the required documentation and expects the submission to be complete by mid to late January.
Regrettably, the City is not able to confirm a date for the removal of fencing on the site at this stage, as work on site is unable to progress until further advice and clearance from DWER and DoH is received. Irrigation has now been restored to the surrounding parkland and the City is working hard to revive the turf in these areas.
