Red flag for pro­posal

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

FIN­LAND’S rep­re­sen­ta­tive in WA has been told to find a new place for his flag pole. Last week, Pep­per­mint Grove Coun­cil told honorary Fin­nish con­sul Ross Nor­gard it re­jected his pro­posed eight-me­tre pole to fly Aus­tralia’s and Fin­land’s flags close to the bound­ary of the honorary con­sulate at his Keane Street home. After the ap­pli­ca­tion was de­ferred be­cause of a neigh­bour’s com­plaints in July, coun­cil­lors agreed the pole was 2m higher than the limit in their draft flag pole pol­icy and it would af­fect neigh­bours’ views. Mr Nor­gard was told the coun­cil would con­sider a new re­quest for a six-me­tre pole on the Keane Street side of his prop­erty.
