A series of major projects delivered
The past month has seen a series of major projects and strategic priorities being delivered by the City of Stirling.Back to Blog
We were pleased to twice host the Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon Scott Morrison MP, as well as several key government ministers and Opposition shadow ministers, as the Federal Election approaches.
The City has been advocating with major parties and candidates to ensure that the needs and aspirations of the residents and businesses within the City of Stirling are heard.
The City completed two major construction projects, with Hamer Park and Moyle Pavilion clubrooms officially opened, and more recently, we reopened the Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre indoor pool area after refurbishments.
April also saw the successful City-sponsored No More Blank Walls Street Art Festival, which delivered a number of murals across various laneways and buildings in Mount Lawley.
Council passed a motion that would enable the fast-tracking of standard development approvals (DAs) if those plans included the retention of a significant tree, and we have hosted for the last month the inaugural WA Tree Festival to further draw attention to Perth's deteriorating tree canopy.
Effective 12.01am Friday 29 April 2022, the WA State Government will be easing public health measures back to what will be referred to as baseline settings.
Measures being eased that relate to City services and programs include the lifting of the indoor mask mandate and removal of the 2m2 rule associated with capacity and gathering limits.
Looking ahead to May we are keenly awaiting the outcome of the State Government's 2022/23 budget, as well as being well underway in the preparation of our own financial plans for the new year.
