AP­PROVAL FOR THIRD BOAT­SHED

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

SCOTCH Col­lege has Pep­per­mint Grove Coun­cil’s ap­proval to build a third boat­shed in Fresh­wa­ter Bay. The ap­pli­ca­tion will also need Swan River Trust ap­proval. At the De­cem­ber 15 meet­ing, coun­cil­lors agreed to the weath­er­board, 7.6m-high boat­shed, to be built about 19m north of the other two sheds. Scotch pro­posed the new shed would be built off-site and trans­ported by barge to the lo­ca­tion at the north end of The Es­planade. Coun­cil­lors re­quested deck­ing and a tem­po­rary ac­cess road and that veg­e­ta­tion and the river­wall be re­stored to their orig­i­nal con­di­tion. IF the City of Perth Act is passed by the Up­per House next year, long-term Su­bi­aco Coun­cil south ward coun­cil­lor Lyn­ley Hewett will be forced to re­tire. Un­der the pro­posed Act, more than 1300 prop­er­ties south of Aber­dare Road in Hol­ly­wood and Craw­ley would be­come part of the City of Perth. Su­bi­aco res­i­dent Lou Cham­bers thanked Cr Hewett for her ser­vice at the an­nual elec­tors meet­ing on De­cem­ber 8. “As­sum­ing the City of Perth Act goes through, we will be los­ing Lyn­ley Hewett,” Ms Cham­bers said. “I would like to thank you Lyn­ley, for ev­ery­thing you have done.”
