PLANS for the redevelopment of Chichester Park in Woodvale are out for public comment.

The City of Joondalup first identified the park’s clubroom for redevelopment in 2014, with community consultation in 2017 indicating more than 90 per cent of respondents supported the proposed works.

The council then approved the proposal to progress to the concept design stage, with plans supported last November.

The City is now seeking feedback on these plans, which include replacing the clubroom with a new two-storey multi-purpose community sporting facility, as well as a new barbecue and picnic area, additional car parking and underground drainage to address flooding issues on the southern playing field.

The new facility is proposed to have the changerooms and sports storage on the ground level and meeting room and kitchen on the upper level.

Submissions can be made until April 15 at www.joondalup.wa.gov.au or call 9400 4221 for a hard copy.

The results will be presented to the council later this year before the project can progress to the next stage.

If approved, construction is proposed to start in 2021-22.
