Carport win to Vidler
Dalkeith resident Ken Vidler has succeeded in his application to build a carport at his Circe Circle home.
Mr V idler, who has seven children and up to five cars a this home at a time, said: “It’s really to protect the cars from the sun, hail and rain .”
However, not all Nedlands councillors were convinced of the necessity for the carport.
“You’ve shot down applications for the same,” Andrew Mangano told his fellow councillors, suggesting that approving the application would expose the council to accusations of inconsistency.
He didn’t persuade councillor Bill Hassell, who said: “What we’re talking about here is a roof over a paved area for a family that needs it.”
