More shade needed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

CLARE­MONT Coun­cil is plan­ning to plant river­side trees while chop­ping down oth­ers near Lake Clare­mont.

At last month’s meet­ing it was agreed to con­sult res­i­dents on plant­ing more trees that could pro­vide shade be­tween Mrs Her­bert’s Park and Ch­ester Road on the Swan River.

A staff re­port said the park was of­ten crowded with peo­ple us­ing its bar­be­cues, a play­ground and toi­lets and tak­ing ad­van­tage of the area’s ma­ture shade trees.

How­ever, the nearby fore­shore had no shade and was un­der-used, so a plan for trees and shrubs has been de­vel­oped.

It was agreed to re­move 11 pest tamarix trees at the lake, add three plant­ing ar­eas near Al­fred Road and the Friends of Lake Clare­mont shed and take away four oth­ers near Lake­way Street.
