Reserve in hands of Perth
JH ABRAHAMS Reserve will be safe in the hands of City of Perth following boundary changes.
Perth has committed to protecting it as a public open space once it acquires the land from the City of Subiaco but plans to protest a settlement condition being imposed by the latter.
Subiaco requested Minister for Local Government Paul Miles to direct Perth to pay $726,500 as financial settlement to cover costs for redundancies and loan repayments for street lighting.
Perth will oppose it until there is mutual agreement regarding all land transfers and financials, including the provision of documentation for land adjoining the reserve.
Perth will continue to analyse data and financials provided by Subiaco as part of asset transfers. Negotiations over the management of the land next to JH Abrahams Reserve are ongoing, and agreement on any financial compensation cannot be reached until all matters are resolved.
Perth will continue to advocate for the best outcome for its residents including those in Nedlands and Crawley.
There is no compensation requirement under State Government Guiding Principles for District Boundary Adjustments, albeit Perth is attempting to reach a satisfactory position through negotiation.
