Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A STRAT­EGY to ad­dress do­mes­tic vi­o­lence is set to be dis­cussed at the next City of Bel­mont in­for­ma­tion fo­rum this week.

The is­sues was raised in April by Coun­cil­lor Pat Gard­ner who called on the City to al­lo­cate fund­ing for a fea­si­bil­ity study to see what it could do to help vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

The coun­cil de­cided to de­fer the is­sue for fur­ther re­search, deputy mayor Robert Rossi said.

“This is­sue is sched­uled for dis­cus­sion at the Au­gust 2016 in­for­ma­tion fo­rum,” he said.

“This has al­lowed of­fi­cers time to re­search and in­ves­ti­gate the is­sue.

“Fol­low­ing the In­for­ma­tion Fo­rum, a fur­ther re­port will be put to coun­cil.”
