Consultation has concluded

The City of Burnside is considering potential options to repair and potentially upgrade the car park in Hazelwood Park, and are seeking community input to help inform the final decision.

Background

The car parking area in the north east corner of Hazelwood Park Reserve currently has an asphalt surface which is in poor condition.

The car park holds approximately 140 spaces (mostly undefined), and there are an additional 40 parks along Davenport Terrace, Hazelwood Park (parallel parking). There are a number of trees which surround the car parking area, and in particular a number of large Eucalypts.

Options

While Council could resurface the car park with an asphalt surface (similar to what is currently in place), there are also potential upgrade options available which could see permeable paving installed in some or all of the car park area. There is also the potential to utilise a permeable asphalt, which would also allow for some water infiltration through the surface to the nearby trees.

Council is seeking community feedback to help inform which option to pursue.

Further details on each of these options are provided below.

Note: indicative costs provided are estimates only to allow for comparison of options. Exact costs would be subject to confirmation through a procurement process.

    Option 1: Status quo (resurface with same treatment as currently in place)

    Estimated cost is approximately $75,000

    Benefits: retains character as-is, minimal disturbance to trees / surrounds, quick / minimal impact to local residents and visitors. Profiling would be undertaken to direct stormwater from the car park surface toward the trees.

    Risks: lost opportunity to upgrade area and improve aesthetics, more impervious area within park compared to other options.

    Option 2: Replace current car park area with permeable paving

    Estimated cost is approximately $750,000-$935,000

    Benefits: may provide some benefit to surrounding trees by decreasing impervious area within the park, may improve the aesthetic 'look' of the car park area.

    Risks: disturbance to existing trees during installation, may result in need to decrease number of parking spaces due to requirement to avoid tree roots. Car park area would be offline for some time while works were undertaken.

    Option 3: Replace eastern side of car park area with permeable paving; retain western half as-is

    Estimated cost is approximately $500,000

    Benefits: as per option 2

    Risks: as per option 2

    Option 4: Replace current surface with a permeable asphalt

    Estimated cost is approximately $750,000-$935,000

    Benefits: retains character as-is, may provide some benefit to surrounding trees by decreasing impervious area within the park.

    Risks: lost opportunity to upgrade area and improve aesthetics. Cost and effort similar to installation of permeable paving due to need to install appropriate base and drainage to support permeable system. Disturbance to existing trees during installation, may result in need to decrease number of parking spaces due to requirement to avoid tree roots. Car park area would be offline for some time while works were undertaken.
