THE northern carpark at Yanchep Lagoon will be built as part of the Yanchep Surf Life Saving Club construction within two years, according to the City of Wanneroo.

After the realigned Brazier Road reopened earlier this month, with a temporary northern carpark, crowds flocked to the beach and cars overflowed the available parking.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City would start designing the building once it received approval from the WA Planning Commission for its coastal hazard risk management and adaptation plan (CHRMAP).

‘The CHRMAP was lodged on August 29, 2014, and the City has recently resubmitted the CHRMAP in response to the WAPC’s review comment,’ she said.

‘Subject to receipt of approval of the CHRMAP from the WAPC, the City will then commence detailed design of the new Yanchep Surf Life Saving Club facility inclusive of the new permanent carpark facility.’

Mrs Roberts said the City expected to receive approval before Christmas, and to finish building the surf club in August 2016.

She said the carpark north of the kiosk had to be upgraded with the club construction because of changes to the ground level.

‘The construction of the proposed surf lifesaving club will require further earthworks to be undertaken to establish the required foundation level, due to the different levels, and directly affects the level of the new permanent carpark facility to be constructed,’ Mrs Roberts said.
