We are having a little fun day on Sunday 20th September from 11am to 3pm. It’s going to be a great day out – it would be wonderful to see you there. Share Event
We’re having a stall and display this Sunday 29 September at the Old Perth Rd Markets in Bassendean. The markets are a great place to hang out & have a cuppa on a Sunday morning. All welcome, see you there!
In the past few years there have been attempts to erode the public open space in Bindaring Park and recently a development application was made which would maintain a permanent causeway over the wetland. This would forever divide the wetland itself in two making it impossible to maximise habitat.
Tonight – Tuesday 25 September 2012 – the Town of Bassendean will vote on whether or not to accept an Officer’s recommendation on the matter of 27L Hyland Street. The recommendation will come up in a report which is a response to the Special Meeting of Electors held on 21 August 2012.
Council Staff have written a report in support of Town Planning Scheme 4A and its aims while advising the owner of 27L that any solution will take at least 25 weeks and the owner says this is too long. Council staff has then recommended that Council notes that the owner of 27 Hyland Street, Bassendean is no longer interested in pursuing the land swap option with the Town of Bassendean.
As a community, we have invested over $1 million in this Scheme and many locals have paid a unit development contribution towards this Scheme.
Bassendean is a beautiful place to live. Our sense of community, beautiful open spaces and proximity to the river all combine to create a Town that is unique. We need to make sure we keep it that way.
Bindaring Vision is asking Bassendean residents to help remind the Town of Bassendean that there is public support for this important space, and to get the Town of Bassendean thinking about what they can do for Bindaring Park.
What can you do?
Write an email to your local Councillors asking them to honour our Town’s 30 year commitment to the Town Planning Scheme 4A, and to save the Bindaring Parkland space as an open recreation space for future generations. (make sure you cc: or bcc: us at email@example.com)
Come along to the meeting TONIGHT to show your support for our iconic open space. The Council Meeting is at 7.00pm at the Town of Bassendean Council Chambers.
The Town of Bassendean has confirmed that our Special Meeting of Electors has been scheduled for 7.00pm, Tuesday 21 August in the Bassendean Seniors’ & Community Centre, 50 Old Perth Road, Bassendean, to discuss the future of the Bindaring Parkland.
Come along to the meeting and show your support for the Bindaring Vision.
In the past few years there have been attempts to erode the public open space in Bindaring Park.
Recently a development application was made to Council which would place a permanent causeway over the wetland. This would forever divide the wetland itself in two, making it impossible to regenerate and care for this important open space.
Bindaring Vision is asking Bassendean residents to sign an online petition so that we can demonstrate public support for the space to get the Town of Bassendean thinking about what they can do for Bindaring Park.
It’s important that Council knows that a public open space which performs an accessible recreational and environmental purpose is something that residents of the Town of Bassendean embrace.
You can sign the petition here.
This wetland is a wildlife habitat, serving a vital function in times of heavy rainfall and flood and is enjoyed as a public open space for recreation.
Just last year we watched in delight as a pair of swans hatched their cygnets. You can see a video of the Swans at this link.
A big thanks to everyone who signed petitions and got them back to us.
We had 126 signatures in the end, not bad for two days work!
The Council staff will set the date soon for the Special Meeting of Electors.
It has taken some time to go through the information that was shared at the meeting, we are grateful for your patience while we did that.
It took longer than expected but we hope that it will all be worth it in the end!
