Lathlain Precinct - Former Bowls Club Site

Consultation has concluded


What is the Former Bowls Club Site?


The site is located within close proximity to the Lathlain Precinct and is the former location of the Carlisle Lathlain Bowls Club. In 2015 Council resolved to retain this area is public open space, however the nature of the space, and what will go on it is yet to be determined and will be heavily influenced by what the community wants. This area is to be considered with the Zone 2 - Community Activity Zone and Zone 5 – Rayment Park in mind as they are similar in nature and located very close to each other.


Thanks for your involvement

The Lathlain Park Management Plan, which sets the overall principles for the use and future development of Lathlain Park, was finalised in late-2016 with valued input from stakeholders and the community.

The draft Lathlain Park Management Plan and West Coast Eagles Development Application were advertised for public comment for 28 days in October 2016. After submissions closed a Special Meeting of Council was held on 6 December 2016 to:

Next steps - concept survey

Earlier in 2017 we invited you to view the current concept plan for the Former Bowls Club Site and Tom Wright Park and provide your feedback. The Town collected feedback until 13 March 2017. The information gathered as part of the survey will be used to inform the final concept plan, which will be presented to the Town of Victoria Park's elected members for their information and future budgeting consideration.

The results of the concept survey have been published and can be viewed on the Lathlain Precinct website, or viewed on this page in the Document Library.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • Hi. If there are adequate toilet facilities available at community based locations near the 'bowling club' is it still necessary to have the toilet block in the car park on the corner of Archer and Planet Streets? This toilet block seems to attract some very unsavory characters who make life very unpleasant for both the local residents and the businesses in the immediate vicinity.

    Sue Gibbings asked almost 3 years ago

    These facilities are not within walking distance of one another and each serve their own purpose so would not replace each other. If you continue to see problems at the toilet mentioned, please don't hesitate to contact to Towns rangers who can come and check it out.

  • Could you let me know when the mail out for Carlisle will occur? I have neighbours who want to comment but don't use a computer, i presume there will be information about other ways to comment.

    Trelawney asked about 3 years ago

    Hi Heather,

    The mail out to Carlisle residents will probably go out on Monday 20th (Next Monday). If you would like to pick up a copy or print one from home before then please email the project manager Jess Gannaway jgannaway@vicpark.wa.gov.au for a copy.



  • What is the future for the Kindy site opposite the old bowls site? Will this area be retained for community use ? Will the building and gardens be retained?

    Paltridgeave asked over 3 years ago

    Please see the previous answer.


    Thanks

  • Can you please tell me what is happening to the Kindy site once the Playgroup move. Can this be retained for a non sporting community centre for multi- purpose such as crafts, yoga, meeting place for all aspects of the community. These grounds could then be used for the community orchard.

    Paltridgeave asked over 3 years ago

    Apologies for the delay in our response,

    There are no current plans in place for the future of this site, which span No 2 -8 Planet Street, Carlisle.  The site is however identified as a significant strategic asset of the Town.

    Following the development of Lathlain Park, further community consultation on the concept/design of the open space at the former Lathlain Carlisle Bowling Club site and Tom Wright reserve, the Town will need to reconsider the future of this site. This consideration will need to take into account the needs of the community,  the nature and capacity of the facilities immediately surrounding the site, and the economic viability of the site.


  • Why is there a heap of mulch from Lathlain Park being taken over and placed on old bowls site?

    soozeee asked over 3 years ago

    The mulch is being offered to the community and has been generated by the tree removal works at Lathlain Park. Community members have suggested giving away the mulch is a positive step of goodwill and healthy urban development.

    Residents, local businesses and community groups can self-load the mulch into their vehicle any day, between the hours of 7am and 5pm.

    Town staff will be able to provide loading assistance on Saturday, 17 and Sunday, 18 September, between the times of 9am to 3pm.

    The free mulch offer is supported by the Victoria Park Urban Tree Network.

    The mulch will be available until it runs out.
