Works have been continuing at One Mile Beach car park and the team have also placed a number of power poles around the perimeter of the carpark to avoid cars parking on non-Council land.

With restrictions around the use of excavating machines due to cultural considerations, the team have been working with larger volumes of road mix than usual.

Project overview

In 2021, Council received funding from NSW Government’s Fixing Local Roads grant to upgrade and reseal Hannah Parade – One Mile Beach carpark.

The project budget was to be funded with approximately 50% Fixing Local Roads grant funding, and 50% Council contributions funding.

However, during the construction of the sewer system, Aboriginal artefacts were discovered, leading to the State government's requirements to obtain an Aboriginal Heritage Impact Permit (AHIP) for future works at the site. This has impacted the project's timelines and the works won’t be complete within funding requirement timelines.

The decision has been made to hand back the Fixing Local Roads grant funding for the construction stage and continue with the project design, getting it ‘shovel ready’.

The works taking place in November 2023 will include maintenance works including pothole repairs, and formalisation of the car park including line marking and perimeter boundaries. See map below for the current scope of works (attached map to be added as an image in the slider)

Please note that the car park will be intermittently closed during the works with traffic control in place - parking along Hannah Parade will be available.

As part of these works, we’ll also ensure that we protect the nearby local vegetation on both Council and NPWS managed lands from vehicle access.

Works in line with our initial concept design are currently on hold due to the heritage considerations and approvals. Once approval is obtained, Council will continue to deliver the project as originally planned once resources allow.
