New look for old car park

CABRAMATTA'S Dutton Lane car park is likely to be treated to a timely upgrade.

Fairfield Council voted unanimously last month in favour of preparing a development application to redevelop the bulk of the site.

It will provide for 250 car spaces, as well as new toilet facilities, lifts, public open space with seating and dining areas, as well as a community kiosk and meeting rooms.

The upgrade will not include the existing multi-storey car park in Dutton Lane.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said the redevelopment would go a long way to addressing the infrastructure needs of Cabramatta.

"The proposal means that residents and visitors to Cabramatta will enjoy new, modern facilities such as extra toilets and car spaces," he said.

"But the residents will not suffer the burden of cost of the development. Not only will the development address infrastructure needs, but income generated from the project will enable the establishment of an infrastructure fund to fund the future infrastructure needs of Fairfield city."

Council is soon expected to begin work preparing a development application for the project.

The process will involve extensive community consultation before it is assessed by an independent consultant.

It will be determined by the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
