Bluff Point clo­sure plea

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

Res­i­dents in Bluff Point have sub­mit­ted a pe­ti­tion to the City of Greater Ger­ald­ton re­quest­ing that an ac­cess way on St Ge­orges Close be closed be­cause of se­cu­rity and safety is­sues.

The pe­ti­tion, signed by 76 res­i­dents, sug­gests re­turn­ing the fence line at the east­ern end of the road to a com­pletely closed sta­tus.

Ac­cord­ing to the pe­ti­tion, when the ac­cess way was pre­vi­ously closed off there was a “re­mark­able” im­pact on the num­ber of break-ins and the amount of sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.

In re­cent weeks res­i­dents have com­plained about sev­eral break-ins, in­trud­ers in back­yards and peo­ple bang­ing on front doors dur­ing the night.

At the or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day, City coun­cil­lors unan­i­mously agreed to re­ceive the pe­ti­tion and re­quest a re­port from the chief ex­ec­u­tive on the ac­cess way within 60 days.
