REDEVELOPMENT works at the Mary Lindsay Homestead in Yanchep are expected to finish in mid-January.

City of Wanneroo’s community and place director Debbie Terelinck said work on the public open space around the historic building was due to finish this month, and restoration of the building would finish by January 15.

“Works on both the public open space and building are progressing,” she said.

“Following the completion of the building and public open space construction, further works such as sealing of carpark surface, kerbing, footpath and line-marking will be required before opening to the public.

“It is anticipated that the public open space and the Mary Lindsay Homestead building will be open in mid-February.

“The building is primarily an art facility, so we anticipate artists, schools and TRYCAN (Two Rocks Yanchep Community Arts Network) to be the primary users.”

The original homestead, located between Capricorn Esplanade and the beach, was built in about 1926.
