Garden group told to stop work

THE Kilkivan Community Garden and Railway Markets Projects Inc has been advised by Gympie Regional Council they are not to undertake any more plantings, alterations, structural additions or improvements to land at Lester Miller Park, adjacent the Kilkivan Railway or the Bligh Street Road reserve, until there is a formal agreement in place between them and council.

Council has asked the Garden and Market group to give council a detailed plan of their works, and say what has been submitted so far is not detailed enough.

At a recent Works and Services Committee meeting, Cr Tony Perrett said the agreement had been an ongoing problem for years and, as council were the trustees for the land, it needed to be certain any activities complied with State requirements.

Council’s parks manager Ed French said in a report it was important for council to ensure works were completed to satisfactory standards for public safety, ongoing maintenance costs and future improvements.

The group has told council it wishes to install a bridge and waterfall in the garden, fit brass plaques to trees and plant more trees, shrubs, bulbs and tree ferns as well as undertake ongoing maintenance.
