Fore­shore strat­egy plan passed

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Swan River -

THE South Perth Fore­shore Strat­egy and Man­age­ment Plan will be sent to the Swan River Trust for for­mal con­sid­er­a­tion after it was passed with a mi­nor amend­ment by South Perth coun­cil­lors at the Septem­ber 23 coun­cil meet­ing.

The plan was made to guide the man­age­ment of the fore­shore which stretches from the Nar­rows Bridge to El­lam Street.

Coun­cil­lor Michael Hus­ton moved the amend­ment which added that the his­tory of the land, re­sumed for the pur­pose of ‘Swan River Im­prove­ments and Fore­shore Recre­ation Grounds’, re­mained cur­rent.

His amend­ment came after con­cerns were raised from mem­bers of the com­mu­nity about what the City would do with the land.

He said the ad­di­tion of the words ‘and re­mains cur­rent’ to con­firm the re­sump­tion of land would not limit the coun­cil and it sim­ply con­firmed it and made it clear.

“It will en­sure this plan at last gets the uni­form support it de­serves,” he said.

Coun­cil­lor Colin Cala sec­onded the amend­ment and said he was happy to support it if it re­moved the anx­i­ety from the com­mu­nity.

The plan in­cludes the im­prove­ment of pub­lic in­fra­struc­ture, recre­ation and tourism ex­pe­ri­ences.
