UPDATE ON RIVERBANK ACCESS AT ALPHINGTON PAPER MILL SITE
Sunday 24 November 2019
Community access to the Yarra Riverbank at Alphington has been restored.
A temporary pathway has been created that provides safe community access to the riverbank through the Glenvill construction site.
Riverbank access was temporarily suspended as work was undertaken to assess stability and to remove two trees that had fallen into the river earlier this year and a third tree that was at risk of falling and causing further damage to the bank.
Glenvill will undertake regular inspections of the access way throughout its use to ensure ongoing community safety.
Read the council report from 12 November 2019.
Council resolution 12 November 2019, Item 11.10

- note that officers have advised Glenvill to proceed with the temporary pathway, and for Glenvill to undertake a regular inspection regime to maintain its condition throughout its use.
