    Design of Traffic Signals - Beeliar/Dunraven - Intersection Has a solution to the provision of a safe pedestrian crossing for Beeliar Drive been decided upon with the above item being the next step to having a type of crossing installed? Or is the above item part of traffic management due to the duplication of Beeliar Drive? Would love to know what type of pedestrian crossing will be installed, if any...

    President_BCVInc Asked 3 months ago

    Hi, thanks for your question. 

    The options for pedestrian crossing (ECM Doc Set ID 9192301) on Beeliar Dr between Dunraven Dr and The Grange were presented at the 12 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting, and Council support design and signalisation of the intersection of Beeliar Drive and Dunraven Drive. The budget was approved for traffic modelling and design of traffic control signals in the 2020/2021 Financial Year Budget. Installation of traffic signal is dependent on Main Roads WA approval.

    We hope this information is helpful.

    What about fixing the footpath on the northern side of Berrigan drive from the shopping centre to Elderberry. I have been asking for this to be done for over 10 years but nothing has ever been done except a little patching work which just makes the path worse. Is it going to take someone to have an accident and go after the Council in court to get something done about this?

    JD De'Laney Asked 3 months ago

    Hi, thanks so much for your message and for letting us know. 

    The footpath will be inspected and if  there is need for repair will be done as soon as possible.

    We hope this information is helpful.

    Why is Stage 2 of the Jandakot Road Upgrade not mentioned in the document? Is it no longer going ahead or is there another explanation?

    Ians84 Asked 3 months ago

    Hi, thank you for your message.

    Jandakot Road Upgrade Stage 2 project is already on the current budget and will be carried forward in 20/21 due to the land acquisition. 

    We hope this information is helpful.

    Can I suggest we build a park on the empty land adjacent to transperth carpark east side of Cockburn station ? In that way, it doesn't look like a desert during the hot season and full of weeds during cold season. Not only that, it can be turned into a farmer's market during the weekend.

    Simonchua32 Asked 3 months ago

    How wld it be if the sqyillions planned for constructing mb tracks wz redirected to: Ranger patrols at all hours in the bushland Reveg of most tracks, certainly tho se illegally made, using people who need a job, teamed up wth community groups Rethinking the amazing facilities at Azalea Ley homestead for more up to date and inclusive usage Talkingo wth LOCAL bikeriders about how their needs can be included in the park wth a LOCAL club issued wth ID and vikes wth numbers on them for identification purposes A chairlift for disabled people and their wheelchairs/ families wth prams up to a spectacular lookout over the ocean (Kalbarri style). The money you've tentatively allocated tobthe paths wld be better spent on facilities for all, bot just one interest group.

    Hi, thank you for your question. 

    No funding has been allocated to the construction of mountain bike trails in Manning Park in the 20/21 budget.

    The funding allocated is to upgrade the signage throughout the park, install some additional park furniture and improve safety for those people crossing the road to access the stairs from the existing car park.

    As outlined in the Manning Park Master Plan, before anything progresses on the trails, a Concept Plan was to be prepared and advertised for public comment. The results of the comment period will determine if any trails are constructed and on what scale.

    Any future trail construction would need to be supported by grant funding.

    We hope this information is helpful.

    Why is the Council going ahead with a $5.6 Million expansion of the Marina at a time when Australia is in recession? There are vacant commercial properties in the Marina precinct that have not been leased out since they where built. These proposed new premises will stay empty for the foreseeable future delivering no return to Cockburn ratepayers.

    Phoenix Asked 3 months ago

    Port Coogee Marina maintained occupancy rates throughout COVID-19 and surprisingly, enquiries for our waitlists have steadily increased during this time.

    Updates from neighbouring marinas are similar to that of Port Coogee Marina in that COVID-19 had little to no effect on private vessel occupancy numbers throughout Western Australia Yacht Clubs and Marinas and waitlist enquiries have increased. 

    There are vacant commercial properties in the Marina precinct, however these are not managed or owned by the City of Cockburn.

    The marina expansion comprises of a boardwalk along the southern side of Maraboo Island and approximately 80 marina berths and land amenities (toilets and showers) to support the additional berths.

    Move the proposed stake park from Aubin Grove to Success. Can the old Success Fire Station be knocked over and used space for skate park ? Perfect location next to Success Netball Association and Southern Lions.

    RyanApp1 Asked 3 months ago

    Hi, thanks for your question. 

    The provision of skate parks across the City is set out in the Community, Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan. This Plan sets out the long term provision of community, sport and recreation facilities from 2018-2033. The Plan identifies that by 2026, the population forecast of 144,310 will require the construction of an additional regional level skate park and another four district level skate parks, including in Aubin Grove. The suburb of Success has not been listed for a skate park, however the adjacent suburb of Hammond Park has been identified.

    Additionally, the funding for the skate park is derived from the City’s Public Open Space Cash-In-Lieu program. This program is funded through the provisions of the Planning and Development Act 2005 whereby land developers are permitted to contribute a cash payment to the local government where the existing public open space (POS) of a suburb has reached the minimum (10%) of POS and the POS is adequately distributed. 

    The contributions are held in a trust account and can only be allocated to the provision and betterment of POS in that suburb. Based on these conditions the funding provision for the skate park cannot be redirected to a skate park in Success. The City also recently committed to undertaking further consultation with the Aubin Grove community to determine whether the skate park is still supported. This consultation recently closed and feedback is currently being assessed to determine the way forward.

    Thanks again for sharing your comments.
