Demolition works in Seymour
An external contractor will complete controlled demolition works on a Council-managed site at 27 Keith St, Seymour, during the week starting 6 July.
Fences will be installed so that the demolition works can take place. Council asks that the community take care around the area and keep safe until works are completed.
There will be a number of trucks travelling through the area and loud noises may be heard. Residents with animals in the area are asked to please make any arrangements to ensure their safety.
The demolition and clean-up will be completed by the end of August, weather permitting.
The site, which has a building in poor condition, is considered an ideal location for expanding future services to the Seymour community because of its proximity to nearby residential areas, Chittick Park and future residential growth areas identified within the Seymour Structure Plan.
Th area is easily accessible by public transport and receives significant foot traffic in the area and, with its proximity to Seymour Library, Seymour College and Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre, is a natural fit for further community use.
The site will be landscaped until the Community Hub Project, which was a key project for the Seymour Revitalisation Community Group, is funded.
Comments from Mitchell Shire Mayor David Lowe
“We purchased the 27 Keith St, Seymour, site through our strategic land acquisition program. While we still do not have a final direction on its permanent use, before we do anything, we will ensure we consult with the Seymour community.,” he said.
“For now, we urge all residents stay safe around these works.”
