Mat­ters tak­ing cen­tre stage

Pep­per­mint Grove Com­mu­nity Sur­vey Com­mu­nity News asked lo­cal may­ors about the im­por­tant is­sues for 2018.

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page - Pep­per­mint Grove pres­i­dent Rachel Thomas. Mos­man Park Mayor Brett Pol­lock.

PEP­PER­MINT Grove Coun­cil has re­cently con­ducted a com­mu­nity sur­vey amongst its res­i­dents. The sur­vey closed in early De­cem­ber and we will re­ceive anal­y­sis and feed­back at our February meet­ing. The re­sults of the sur­vey will be fol­lowed up in fo­cus group con­sul­ta­tion to pro­vide the coun­cil with more de­tailed ex­pec­ta­tions and pri­or­i­ties. This in­for­ma­tion will be used to re­view and up­date our strate­gic com­mu­nity plan which will, in turn, in­form and de­ter­mine the Shire’s long-term fi­nan­cial, as­set man­age­ment and work­force man­age­ment plans. The Town of Mos­man Park is em­brac­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for higher build­ing den­sity made pos­si­ble through Lo­cal Plan­ning Scheme Num­ber 3. There will be scope for multi-storey dwellings, in­clud­ing six storeys on Glyde and Stu­art streets be­tween Mon­u­ment Street and Stir­ling High­way, and three storeys on St Leonards Street and Willis Street. We are con­fi­dent this will de­liver ex­cit­ing new busi­nesses and res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties, clus­tered around our Town’s ex­cel­lent trans­port links and thriv­ing com­mer­cial cen­tres. Pro­vid­ing an over­all strate­gic di­rec­tion to guide fu­ture de­vel­op­ment, the Town has launched a Let’s Re­vi­talise Mos­man Park con­sul­ta­tion process that seeks com­mu­nity in­put to help shape this area into a vi­brant and at­trac­tive town cen­tre. This whole-of-precinct strat­egy will en­sure that we bal­ance the needs of res­i­dents, busi­ness own­ers and vis­i­tors in a way that is smart, sus­tain­able and that main­tains the vi­brancy and beauty of Mos­man Park.
