Monument Hill overhaul planned
Other projects on which the final plans could be modelled include the revitalisation of Reabold Hill in City Beach, and restoration of the former BP bunker depot east of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Mr Norris said improvements would allow Monument Hill to be used by a greater variety of people for different purposes, effectively providing passive surveillance against some of the anti-social uses currently attracted to the area because of its isolation and degraded state.
“In time, commercial opportunities such as a cafe could emerge,” Mr Norris said.
He said talks with the Department of Water about improving the hill had been positive, although the department had indicated it needed to keep a reservoir overflow pit on the west side of the hill.
The department, Tourism WA and the Department of Sport and Recreation may be approached by the council to help fund the project, which is considered a longterm project taking several years.
The revitalisation will work in concert with a community-developed proposal to create a nearby regional park linking the Swan River to the coast.
