Ash­tonTri­an­gle for stor­age

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion - By DENISE S. CAHILL

TREES, wire mesh and shade cloth fenc­ing and planter boxes will be used to pro­tect res­i­dents near the Ash­ton Tri­an­gle from dust, noise and loss of amenity when the Town of Clare­mont for­malises the space for stor­age.

Clare­mont has been us­ing the space bounded by the rail­way line and Judge and Ash­ton av­enues in­for- mally to store road pro­fil­ings from cap­i­tal road­works since the Town’s pre­vi­ous de­pot was given back to the State Gov­ern­ment for the North East Precinct devel­op­ment.

A coun­cil re­port stated that the Town had been in­ves­ti­gat­ing al­ter­na­tive sites but was un­able to find one nearby.

“As this ma­te­rial is 95 per cent solid and less than 5 per cent sand, dust and smell is min­i­mal,” the re­port said. “The noise im­pact is only when it is un­loaded, loaded and trans­ported.

“As this is done dur­ing day time on week­days, the im­pact is also min­i­mal.”
