New nurs­ing home site op­tion

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

KALA­MUNDA Shire coun­cil will dis­cuss an area of land 2.27ha wide in Glyde Road, Les­mur­die, that some res­i­dents feel would make a suit­able al­ter­na­tive lo­ca­tion for a nurs­ing home in the Hills.

Try­ing to find a lo­ca­tion that suits ev­ery­one will be a hard task for plan­ners but Wal­lis­ton res­i­dent Tim Cole­gate thinks he has the so­lu­tion.

The land is listed for dis­cus­sion at the coun­cil meet­ing on Fe­bru­ary 23.

It is listed for re­zon­ing from lo­cal re­serve to res­i­den­tial R5, which al­lows for big- ger dwellings to be built.

Mr Cole­gate said the site would be a lesser fire risk than the plot of land in Wilkins Road which has cur­rently been ear­marked by the Shire to build a new aged care fa­cil­ity.

“The land on Glyde Road is also close to IGA, the Villa Maria Aged Care Hos­tel and some fa­cil­i­ties could be shared,” Mr Cole­gate said.

He has urged all coun­cil­lors to con­sider the idea be­fore the next coun­cil meet­ing.


Tim Cole­gate wants Wilkins Rd Re­serve left alone.
