MLA wants protection for Victoria Park
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.
