Essential Energy have advised Council that the carpark at Block 10 Lookout has been closed in the interest of public safety after ongoing anti-social behaviour in the area.
The land, which is owned by Essential Energy and maintained by Council, was originally used as a carpark for the heritage walk that runs along the Block 10 site.
The isolated location has become a problem area in recent years, with Essential Energy noticing frequent vandalism, excessive litter, and reckless driving.
Essential Energy and Council had discussed the possibility of sealing the carpark to improve its appearance and discourage uncontrolled driving on the dirt surface, however, two incidents of drivers crashing through the Essential Energy fence has forced the company to close the area due to safety concerns.
An Essential Energy spokesperson said parking would be provided on the land adjacent to the Block 10 carpark, while pedestrian access would remain available to the walking trail.
Council's Manager Infrastructure, Andrew Bruggy, said Essential Energy's decision was understandable.
"It's been a problem area for a while now, and I think they've been pretty understanding given the vandalism and damage to their property," he said.
"At the end of the day it's their land, and we recognise that it's causing them ongoing problems and safety concerns."
Essential Energy will erect signage in the coming weeks to show that pedestrian access is still permitted.
