Recent consultation about fencing

We asked

We sought feedback from Coolbellup residents by 4pm Friday July 28, 2017 about proposed new fencing and gates along Sebastian Crescent and Molvolio Road Coolbellup in the Roe 8 Corridor to replace the temporary site fencing.

As part of the Roe 8 project, construction fencing was erected along the work site. After the project was halted in March the State Government tasked the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Working Group, made up of government and community agencies, with organising the remediation of the Corridor, including removal of mulch, weed spraying, asbestos removal and fencing.

It is now time to replace the fences with more appropriate low conservation style fences designed to protect the vegetation regrowth, deter dumping of rubbish and deter access by trail bikes but still allow public access through appropriately located gates. These conservation style fences, pedestrian access gates known as ‘hop-overs’ and vehicle access gates are used throughout the City of Cockburn.

A majority of respondents prefer fencing around the outside of the Corridor, rather than just the cleared sites, to allow better management of the whole site and limit illegal dumping in the bush.

Residents provided feedback about appropriate places to provide gates on the fence lines.

These findings were reported to the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Working Group, which accepted the majority of recommendations. Conservation style-fencing has been installed.
