Deliberative Panel Recommendations, Scaled Version and Initial Costings - Option 5

<p> </p><p>Option 5 retains and improves the golf course and extends the wetlands to the north increasing the overall size of the wetlands. The current practice fairway south of Oval 1 is replaced with additional tree planting increasing the urban forest feel. </p> <p>Option 5 also includes an eco-café/pro shop and a wetlands viewing shelter for educational and community use. This will provide an opportunity for bird watching and habitat interpretation. </p> <p>This option has been drawn to scale and takes into consideration the limitations of the site and opportunities to improve the visitor experience. </p><p>A pavilion (change rooms, public toilets, umpire room, kiosk) for Oval 2 has been added. A new pavilion for Oval 2 at Elsternwick North has been a long term priority as identified in the Bayside Pavilion Improvement Plan. The current change rooms for Oval 2 have been deemed not fit for purpose and poorly located. The exact location of this new pavilion will be determined through a future design development process, subject to the outcomes of the Council meeting. This pavilion has been indicatively shown south west of the existing carpark (St Kilda Street).</p><p></p><p><img alt="" src=""></p><br><p><br></p><p></p><p>Below is the original Option 5 as developed by the Deliberative Panel - Sunday 13th November 2016.</p><p></p><p><img alt="" src=""></p><p></p><p><b>Initial costing</b></p><p>These figures have been updated on 17 March 2017 to reflect a reduction in the estimated costs of constructing the wetland components from previously published figures.  </p><p>The reduction in costs for Option 5 is $104,300.</p><p></p><p>The original calculations for the wetlands included infrastructure items such as pumps and piping that would only be required if the wetlands were being created from scratch and serving a water harvesting function. As this part of the options reflects wetland construction only (not water harvesting) these infrastructure elements are not required in any option. </p><p>The originally published figures are still available to view as a PDF in the <a href="">key documents area</a>.</p><p>The costings provide an early estimate on what Council would need to invest construct Option 5 as well as additional ongoing maintenance costs that are above what Council currently spends on Elsternwick Park.</p><p>While indicative, these costings reflect Council’s current experience for build and construction costs or are estimates provided by Council’s contractors who undertake this type of work.</p><p><br></p><p></p><table><tbody> <tr><td><p><b>Elsternwick Park Deliberative Panel Option 5</b></p></td></tr> <tr> <td><p>Demolish and remove change rooms and toilets</p></td> <td><p>20,000</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>Construct 400m2 Pavilion & 3 pan toilets (1 ambulant)</p></td> <td><p>1,255,060</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>Sportsground reconstruction No 2. drainage, irrigation and profile</p></td> <td><p>800,000</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>1400 m2 wetland</p></td> <td><p>354,400</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>Tree and understorey supply and install</p></td> <td><p>5,775</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>84 M2 Viewing shelter/Education space inclusive of 3 pans (1 ambulant)</p></td> <td><p>530,000</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>Café 300m2 (in conjunction with pro shop)</p></td> <td><p>1,050,000</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p><b>Subtotal</b></p></td> <td><p><b>4,012,235</b></p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p>Contingency 20%</p></td> <td><p>802,477</p></td> </tr> <tr> <td><p><b>Total capital cost</b></p></td> <td><p><b>4,814,682</b></p></td> </tr> <tr><td> <p>On Going Maintenance</p> <p>Limited change to existing</p> </td></tr> </tbody></table><p><img src="" alt=""></p><br><p></p><br><p><br></p><p></p>
