City Services Redevelopment
Council's City Services site on Marion Road is to get a $9 million upgrade to improve the delivery of core services throughout the 55 square kilometres of the city.
The facility is the operational base for council's infrastructure, open space planning and operations, traffic and engineering, land and property, waste management services, as well as operational support.
Operations conducted from the site include public infrastructure management, which involves the design, development and construction of footpaths, roads and stormwater drainage. The open space unit develops parks, reserves and playgrounds. The site also hosts the plant nursery.
The redevelopment will include a new building, stores and mechanical workshop, which will ensure essential services are delivered well into the future. The redevelopment will see a better planned, more accessible, energy efficient building, enabling staff to improve the level of service to the community.
City Services will be a high quality operations hub, capable of supporting the city's roads, reserves and 84,000 residents for many years to come. It will also act as an operational base to help the community in the event of a regional emergency.
The upgrade was approved by council on 14 June 2011 and design work is expected to commence in September 2011 with work on the site expected to begin mid 2012.
Council has been operating from the site at 935 Marion Road, Mitchell Park since 1962.
For further information please contact Council's Strategic Project Officer on 8375 6858.
On 11 September 2012, council adopted the design and authorised the commencement of the tender process for a builder to construct the project. Council will review the tenders in December 2012 prior to final approval to proceed.
