    In response to public statutory consultation in April 2018 and the Ordinary Council meeting held 24 September 2019, Council resolved for the CEO to put forward a Scheme Proposal to the Office of the Attorney General to vary the Bruce Trust Indenture.

    The Scheme for variation of Trust under the Charitable Trusts Act 1962 (WA) was approved by the Hon Attorney General and the Scheme published in Government Gazette number 70 on 8 May 2020 at page 1168.
    Please see document library for your reference.

    The Scheme Variation corrects an anomaly between the Trust land and the existing road along The Esplanade by recognising the road, allowing vehicles to park on the edge of the road and allows for the application of the City of Nedlands Parking and Parking Facilities Local Law 2013 on the road that is situated on part of the Bruce Trust Land. The Scheme Variation does not allow the road to be widened.

  • Annual Bushland Spraying Program 2020

    17 June, 2020
    supporting image

    The annual spraying program is being undertaken by Contractors from July through to October 2020 to control environmental weeds in the following bushland areas:

    • Shenton Bushland
    • Allen Park
    • Hollywood Reserve
    • Birdwood Parade Bushland
    • Point Resolution Bushland
    • Mt Claremont Oval Bushland
    • Mt Claremont Community Centre
    • Swanbourne Estate


    The City will be focusing on the control of bulbous weeds, and annual and perennial grass weeds using the herbicides listed below:

    • Metsulfuron-methyl: used to control bulbous weeds
    • 2 2-DPA (Dalapon): used to control bulbous weeds
    • Glyphosate: used in conjunction with metsulfuron-methyl to control bulbous weeds
    • Fusilade: used to control annual and perennial grass weeds.

    Signage will be displayed whilst these works are occurring.

    The City undertakes environmental weed control to improve biodiversity values and to reduce the negative impacts environmental weeds cause to the ecosystems they invade, for example they compete with native plants, thereby reducing the species and diversity for both flora and fauna.

    Environmental weeds cause erosion, alter water availability, change soil nutrients, increase the likelihood of bush fires and change vegetation communities within bushland areas.

    • Enhance the existing greenway corridor at Allen Park by increasing the area of bushland in the Reserve;

    • Revegetation with local provenance native seedlings;
    • Maintenance of public access such as beach fencing;
    • Improvement of bushland condition;
