THE Carramar Scout Group could soon have a home in Tapping, and is looking for housemates.

Earlier this year, Wanneroo Council approved Scouts WA as the developer of 76 Ashley Road, opposite the Jimbub Swamp Park.

Scouts WA administration manager Dana Kelly said it was a significant development for the local scouts and “an exciting prospect for other community groups in the district”.

“The new building is designated to be a Community Scout Hall – the key word is ‘community’,” she said.

“There are many groups in the Wanneroo City district that would love to have a new place for children’s activities, or as a place to meet for regular or occasional activities and sessions.”

Groups interested in sharing the future facility can email Dana at ea1@scoutswa.com.au or call 6240 7700.

The City of Wanneroo is currently running public consultation on proposed rezoning of the site from ‘residential’ to ‘civic and cultural’ to facilitate the Community Scout Hall development.
