City lets re­hab stay

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Southcare Kewdale -

TWO KEW­DALE homes, used as a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion fa­cil­ity for the past 10 years with­out the knowl­edge of the City of Bel­mont, have won ap­proval from the coun­cil to con­tinue.

The Depart­ment of Hous­ing’s Fresh Start Re­cov­ery Pro­gram for so­cially dis­ad­van­taged women op­er­ates from two strata lots at 17 and 17a Keane Street.

The Depart­ment leases the prop­er­ties to Foun­da­tion Hous­ing who sub­lease to Fresh Start, which of­fers sup­ported ac­com­mo­da­tion for re­cov­er­ing ad­dicts.

When the mat­ter went out for pub­lic sub­mis­sions, two ob­jec­tions were re­ceived re­gard­ing noise, pri­vacy and as­so­ci­ated an­ti­so­cial is­sues.

Coun­cil­lors voted 8-1 in support of the fa­cil­ity, with Margie Bass against.
