Actively build communities around sustainable
behaviour change (e.g. Be Living Smart)
City of Nedlands to be a World Class Benchmark
for ACTIVE Citizens
Promote and support the Community Gardens in
Regular street cleaning
Establish Community Council's and work
Bus shelters at every bus stop - essential in
40-degree heat / driving rain!
Take every opportunity to preserve / extend
bushland areas, e.g.: Extend
"Banksia Farm" (CAMB) to cover Western Power site (unused) that lies
between Mt Claremont Community Centre and Kurren Court.
Covenant on all trees - public and private
property - Nandina / Zamia Street, Mt Claremont
Fix kerb on corner of Haldane & Adderley
Use steam to kill weeds in public places -
other Councils employ this method.
Provide a sealed laneway for Kennedia
Lane. Multiple houses have now been
constructed and the laneway is now direct access to over 10 new properties, yet
there is no sealed lane for the current residents. Health issues with dust into houses and
public liability with huge holes and no lighting.
Provide low cost housing for aged and
disadvantaged people … Hollywood Village site??
Prune fig tree in Jones Park
Protect trees on Private & Public property.
Place a value on trees.
Dog park at new park in Saint John's Wood
Boulevard…bottom of new development Montgomery House
#28 Bus to travel Stubbs Terrace instead of
Brockway Road - (dangerous - 2 schools there).
Investigate the width of Camilla Avenue (beside
Graylands Hospital) after school hours (e.g. 3:20pm), as the #28 bus going to
Perth can barely pass the traffic approaching Brockway Road.
Traffic control on John XXIII Avenue at school
times due to congestion.
Sustainable population - restrict urban infill.
More dog exercise areas.
Future road pattern planning for future
Graylands Hospital Residential Redevelopment to allow for wider roads. Currently too narrow even for existing
Need for more ACROD Parking.
Better traffic control in Rochdale & Alfred
Facilitate training and support for Community
Clubs - e.g. Coaching, Health & Safety, Facilities - Management. Reduce the
number of chicane and road humps.
Street trees - deciduous - create avenues
(shade in Summer, sun in Winter). Rochdale Road / Coastal.
Avoid planting inappropriate verge trees with
heave debris causing safety issues for residents (slipping on nuts etc).
Nature Playground (Coastal)
Underground Power (Coastal)
Traffic quietening - Rochdale Road
Recognition for Community Club Volunteers.
Parking at Asquith Street shops
Secure weekend volunteers for sports clubs -
set up / pack down / match officials / bar and kitchen.
Strategic plan to manage traffic flow at
intersection of Montgomery Avenue and Stephenson Avenue.
Future traffic congestion at top of Montgomery
Avenue as new development of 50 dwellings come on street.
Consider development of multi-age dwellings.
Program to support connection and community at
a street level.
Add to priorities: provide for sport,
recreation and arts & culture.
Progress walking and cycling trails, to link
LEMNOS, MT CLAREMONT, BOLD PARK and SWANBOURNE BEACH and more.
CAT Bus System - Linking to train stations:
various shopping hubs: City: Schools: Uni
Rain Water Drains - Collecting surplus rain off
roads - stored in underground tanks. Used to make Nedlands truly GREEN
General Maintenance - Paths, Roads, Parks …
Create database (online) to log maintenance issues with tracking and reporting
to Council and Ratepayers. Improve maintenance response times.
Sunset Hospital Site - Council to determine
preferred cases with State Government / National Trust - Art Gallery, Function
Centre, Tea Rooms, Small Bar, Arts / Culture.
Facility management by City of Nedlands.
Demolish non-heritage buildings and additions. Perimeter parkland.
Protection of significant trees and character
homes : The character of Nedlands is
gradually disappearing with the levelling of many blocks to make way for new
homes, often with removal of all trees no matter how large, and leaving huge
concrete footprints. Consider protection
of trees of certain size / age. Consider
increasing heritage protection of homes.
(Light) rail to University : Need to alternate transport along Winthrop /
Thomas to hospitals / university which would decrease traffic / parking
Reduction of bore use in private homes : Protect our water table / aquifers.
Pt Resolution :
No new paths necessary.
Fenced Dog Parks : 1 per Ward required.
Duplex options in Waratah Avenue - for blocks
between Robert Street & Alexander Road.
No more over height buildings - no new
construction over 10m (3 storey) in Nedlands.
Protection of Character Homes - ensure the
beauty of Nedlands is maintained. People
want to move here because of the beauty.
Doesn't seem to make sense to choose a beautiful area to live in, then
go about building modern abodes. Nothing
wrong with modern abodes, but Perth has plenty of suburbs offering such
possibilities. Beauty of Nedlands are
the trees and houses are rare in Perth metro area (6009).
Staying in Nedlands - allowing residents to
stay in Nedlands through full choice of home & land options. - Allow subdivision where direct access to
each lot to street can be achieved (i.e. no battle axe blocks). Why do we have to leave area when a large
block becomes too much!
No subdivision that will increase traffic and
heat load for others : If subdivision
allowed, there needs to be a tax on the developer which neutralises financial
gain and gives the benefit back to the community that have to live with the
Bicycle paths through Dalkeith - Nedlands -
UWA. (Help solve parking issues)
Water Over Use - Cease watering from bores 3 x
week endless time on street verge AND the War Cemetery. Encourage appropriate ground cover and tree
plantings on all verge areas.
Playgrounds & Parks - More playgrounds
between Stirling Highway and Monash Avenue (Hollywood Ward). Houses are on small blocks, so backyards are
too small. Children need more open-space
possibilities in the Ward.
Sub-Division - Why is this a dirty word? OK till now, but saying NO in the future will
continue the mono culture of large houses on large blocks. No integrated development. Why only development hubs? Why not the 400
plus corner lots throughout Nedlands / Dalkeith that could accommodate 2 homes
(over time). Please retain our beautiful
suburbs. Denser development does not
have to sacrifice our lovely surrounds.
(Resident of 1012sqm lot on Mason Gardens). YES - SUBDIVISION!!!
As above- Totally agree - if we as a group
can't agree to move diversity, it WILL be forced upon us by the State
Engage retrofitting of existing buildings and
design of new buildings to reflect reduction of power requiring existing
methods, i.e. to change to sustainable methods - wind, solar, use of rainwater
collection - to meet greenhouse emissions targets. This should include individual house /
subdivision plans as well as public buildings!
Allowing higher density may mean our children
can afford to get into the property ladder in the future.
Ensure that all public recreation areas in
C.O.N are preserved as cores of future communities by collaborating with local
communities and appropriate authorities to lock in fundamental elements -
especially the land upon which they are located.
Coastal bushland areas - collaborate and consult
with the local community to ensure that treasured, well-used and much loved
"heritage" pathways are not lost to their "vested"
interests. To do this, Council must clearly establish who owns what (i.e. Crown
/ State / Local Government) and act assertively to keep areas for the
succeeding generations to enjoy.
