Keirnan Park update: Detailed Design nearing completion, water update and draft service level agreements

Published on Wednesday, 14 June 2023 at 10:32:37 AM

Progress continues at the site of the Keirnan Park Recreation and Sporting Precinct, with some key milestones being achieved in recent weeks.

These include important works on Stage 1A and 1B, as well updates on draft service level agreements and clearing permits. See the full updates below:

Stage 1A - Multi use pavilion, entry road, car park and ovals

Shire officers are working with the design consultant to finalise the detailed design documentation.

Stage 1B – BMX Track and Pavilion

Shire Officers have received 100% detailed design of Stage 1B from our design consultants and are reviewing the documentation.


The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) have advised the Shire that a H2 assessment is required before it makes a determination in the Shire’s request to access the deeper aquifer (Cattamarra Coal Measure Aquifer) at Keirnan Park. Subject to Council resolution, the H2 assessment is anticipated to take three to four months before DWER can advise if water can be taken sustainably from the deeper aquifer.

Draft Service Level Agreements – Stage 1A and 1B

A draft service level agreement template has been developed and shared with the Keirnan Park Stakeholder Reference Group. The templates will be used to develop Service Level Agreements for Stages 1A and 1B when the respective stages reach the appropriate point of the project development.

Clearing permits

A clearing permit has been lodged with Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water. The clearing permit process will allow approval to commence construction phase once this is in hand. The Shire is awaiting the outcome of this application.
