We have recently had several calls from local residents concerned at the activity of heavy machinery on the Yaralla Estate. And we can assure you that the developers have not arrived.
After a lot of time planning and working with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Sydney Local Health District are preparing for some restoration work and some enhancements to the grounds of the Yaralla Estate to make the beautiful open spaces of the grounds more accessible to the community.
Works to restore the guttering along The Drive inside the Estate gates will reinstate the heritage brick kerbside.
Landscaping works along the tree-lined drive and the creation of two small parking areas will allow visitors to safely park, prevent damage to tree roots and help protect the natural environment for future generations.
A new pathway will provide a safe and accessible passage for pedestrians from the main entrance gates to the Estate’s other pathways around the garden.
All works are supervised by an archaeologist and heritage consultant. Works are due to be completed by the end of 2018.
