RECENT City of Stirling council decisions:

  • TEN lots surrounding Servite College in Tuart Hill are being rezoned.

Stirling council supported rezoning of land on Cape, Stoneham, Myers, Morgans and Tyler streets from R30 to private institution but with restrictions at the November 20 meeting.

A report by the City said it was unclear what the school intended to use the lots for but existing uses such as storage and offices was unsuitable for residential zoning.

Land uses will be restricted to parking, a caretaker’s dwelling, childcare, educational establishment or office.

 

  • CITY of Stirling is leasing a vacant land in Stirling to a developer for parking.

Council voted to approve a 12-month lease to Cedric Investment for use of the Sanderling Street lot.

The developer will use the site for parking while it builds its La Luna apartments complex at the corner of Cedric and Sanderling streets, next to Stirling Village shopping centre.

It will pay the City $6034 for the year plus GST and outgoing costs.

 

  • COUNCIL approved funding for four community events next year.

It will provide $20,000 for the Jambo Africa Festival, $30,000 for the Rotary Carine Community Fair, $20,000 for the Mirrabooka Naidoc event and $20,000 for the inaugural Colour of Italy festival.

 

  • THE City will review traffic and road safety on Main Street in Osborne Park.

Crs Giovanni Italiano and Adam Spagnolo sought a review of recently installed on-street parking bays and 40km/h speed zone between Federal and Eldorado streets.

The report will assess the feasibility of constructing traffic management measures to address concerns of vehicles speeding and include crash statistics for the corner of Main and Royal streets.

 

  • A TREE planting trial is proposed for Carine and Balcatta.

The City will write to the Environment Minister requesting the State Government matches trees planted by the City on State-owned median strips and schools.

The trial will start on the Reid Highway median strip between Marmion Avenue and Mitchell Freeway and Takari Primary School.
