Project Name: Works Depot – Covered Plant Storage Shed

Proposed Status: Move forward to construct in 2019-20

Previous Status: Listed as “Future Project”

Proposed Budget: $32,000

Project objective: To slow weather-related deterioration of Council plant and to improve utilisation of Council plant

Project justification: This shed would be used to store equipment like the small roller, the variable message board, the skid steer and the 2.5T excavator.  Undercover storage would keep the equipment in good condition for longer, but also make sure the equipment was ready for use after rain (e.g. the controls and seat are dry when the operator arrives in the morning). Long term, this project will allow higher utilisation rates for the plant and may reduce maintenance and extend assets lives.

Project scope: Construct an 18 x 6m storage shed with gravel base for plant and equipment at the works depot.
