Feedback opening for youth and family in Laverton

New conceptual designs for the youth and family police station at Lawrie Emmins Reserve in Laverton North are now available for public comment.

The project, titled Lawrie Emmins Gateway and Youth Precinct, is part of the implementation of the Lawrie Emmins Reserve Master Plan endorsed by the council in 2019.

The Council said this stage of the project will offer a diverse range of recreational opportunities that celebrate young people in the fast-growing suburbs of Williams Landing, Laverton North and Truganina.

It will be a gateway to the Lawrie Emmins Reserve located on Sayers Road, Laverton North.

Conceptual projects include an outdoor skate park and climbing space, outdoor multi-purpose courts, fitness equipment, barbecue and picnic facilities, and public restrooms.

The project is estimated at $3.7 million, funded by a $1.5 million state government grant via the state and a further $2.2 million from the Wyndham Council.

Wyndham Mayor Peter Maynard welcomed the consultation, saying the youth station will become a valuable recreation center for youth.

“Our city is growing rapidly, with many new young families moving into the area,” he said.

“The Lawrie Emmins Reserve will be an important space for our young people to enjoy sporting activities and have fun.

“It is exciting to reach this next step in the development of this long-awaited recreational space and I encourage everyone to give their input on the conceptual plans.”

Feedback ends on July 18th.
