MLA wants pro­tec­tion for Vic­to­ria Park

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

PREMIER Colin Bar­nett says Bur­swood should be part of the City of Perth but it ap­pears in­creas­ingly un­likely.

The City of Perth Bill 2015 is up for de­bate in Par­lia­ment this week, seek­ing to re­de­fine City of Perth bound­aries.

“Bur­swood, par­tic­u­larly the sta­dium and casino, should be in the City of Perth,” Mr Bar­nett said. “How­ever that’s not go­ing to hap­pen, so we are not pur­su­ing that; that’s not the bound­ary we’re draw­ing.

Vic­to­ria Park MLA Ben Wy­att said the leg­is­la­tion meant Perth could ab­sorb Bur­swood in fu­ture and the Town of Vic­to­ria Park wants sec­tions of the Bill re­moved due to con­cerns they could be used to re­move or change re­spon­si­bil­ity for ar­eas from the Town.
