PETER Wimsett stood down after eight years as chairman of Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association at its AGM on Monday and Alex Figg was elected unopposed.
Mr Wimsett thanked his fellow office bearers, including treasurer Janet Clutterbuck who was re-elected as there were no nominations for the role.
Giving his final report at the November 26 meeting, Mr Wimsett said it was one of the few residents associations in the area that was still going.
In the past year, he said issues covered had included beach access and seaweed at Two Rocks, weed killer and mulch replacing grass on verges.
“The City (of Wanneroo) has to reduce its water usage, that’s why we are seeing more mulch and less grass,” he said.
Mr Wimsett said the biggest issue had been the BP fuel station on Newman Road, which the Metro North-West Development Assessment Panel approved on November 19.
Members discussed the decision in the ordinary meeting following the AGM, and Mr Figg said BP had the option to appeal conditions, including the restricted operating hours, to the State Administrative Tribunal.
“There are no third party appeal rights – residents can’t appeal,” he said.
Residents discussed submitting objections to the environment minister based on concerns about the Carnaby’s black cockatoo habitat at the site.
