BAYSWATER electors are calling on the City to ban wheel clamping.

This comes after the City of Stirling became the first local government in WA to draft a local law to ban wheel clamping last month.

While the City of Bayswater does not do wheel clamping, it does not have local laws or anything stopping people from doing it on private properties.

More than 50 electors supported Bayswater resident Greg Smith’s motion for a ban at the annual general meeting of electors on December 10.

Mr Smith said wheel clamping was a “terrible thing” for community development.

Fellow resident Clare Chamberlain said she saw a man who got his wheel clamped near Drip Espresso at 6.40am on December 10.

Drip Espresso told Community News that they did not have wheel clamping in place but nearby accountants Harding and Thornbury did.

Harding and Thornbury declined a request to comment.

The council will consider the proposal in January.
