AshtonTriangle for storage
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.”
