Wanneroo Times - - News -

THE City of Wan­neroo has re­ceived 129 cus­tomer en­quiries about sand drift and is­sued three in­fringe­ments since in­tro­duc­ing a pol­icy on the is­sue last De­cem­ber.

The pol­icy re­sponded to res­i­dents’ con­cerns about sand blow­ing from devel­op­ment sites on to neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties, streets and pub­lic fa­cil­i­ties.

City act­ing plan­ning and sus­tain­abil­ity di­rec­tor Maria Cooke said the num­ber of sand drift and dust com­plaints had in­creased in re­cent years.

“Most of these com­plaints are at­trib­uted to large de­vel­op­ments where bulk earth­works have been un­der­taken, ex­pos­ing sand and dust which causes a nui­sance,” Ms Cooke said.

To re­port sand drift is­sues, call 9405 5000 or 1300 138 393 af­ter hours.
