Un­easy group drives land plan change

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Need A Tradie? City Of South Perth - Su­sanne Reilly

THE idea that South Perth coun­cil could sell land as­sets in its Land As­set Man­age­ment Plan had res­i­dents wor­ried.

De­spite chief ex­ec­u­tive Cliff Frew­ing as­sur­ing coun­cil­lors at the agenda brief­ing it was not a sales plan but a land reg­is­ter, there were some con­cerns.

City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion chair­woman Ce­cilia Brooke said res­i­dents who lived close to the coun­cil of­fices and li­brary would be very up­set if th­ese were sold for highrise de­vel­op­ments.

The re­port said the plan would en­sure the City man­aged prop­erty more strate­gi­cally.

It iden­ti­fied sev­eral places, such as South Perth Bridge Club and Kens­ing­ton Kinder­garten, for Prop­erty Man­age­ment Team mon­i­tor­ing and had rec­om­men­da­tions for each one.

It also rec­om­mended the civic cen­tre, hall and li­brary be fur­ther in­ves­ti­gated for re­zon­ing and re­de­vel­op­ment po­ten­tial if coun­cil re­lo­cated its of­fices after merg­ing with the Town of Vic­to­ria Park.

But at Tues­day’s coun­cil meet­ing, coun­cil adopted the plan on con­di­tion all ref­er­ences to rec­om­men­da­tions on each par­cel of land were re­moved.
