SEINOR PARK DIRT TRACK DISCUSSIONS

The Shire of Dandaragan will work with young people on a proposal to create a track in a local Beachridge reserve for young BMX riders in Jurien Bay. The potential project has come about after a number of ad hoc jumps were made by local riders in swales and roadside verges in Beachridge that some local residents felt were unsightly and unsafe, and requested their removal by Shire staff.

In response to this issue a group of local young people sent the Shire a request on behalf of the young residents of Beachridge Estate for a track to be made through a portion of Seinor Park (bordered by Twilight Drive, Adriana Parade, Bathers Way and Meelup Drive) to eliminate road verges being used.

The proposal brought to the Shire is for a track of 2 metres wide to be cleared through the drainage area of bushland at Seinor Park with final shaping to be done by users themselves.

A consultation meeting will be held at Seinor Park on Friday 22 November 2019 for anyone who would like to provide feedback and ideas or to share any concerns. We would like to speak to young people first from 4pm, then the broader community are welcome to stop by from 4.30-5pm to discuss the proposal. Alternatively, comments in writing will be accepted until Friday 29 November about a portion of the park being utilised for this purpose.
