NEWS
MAYOR’S MESSAGE
Residents will
now be aware the
whole process of
Local Government
reform has been
put on hold.
The City of
Belmont Council
unanimously voted to formally withdraw
from the Perth Metropolitan Local
Government reform process at a Special
Council Meeting held on 17 February.
As a result the merger between the City
of Belmont and the Shire of Kalamunda
will no longer go ahead.
Our Council consistently opposed forced
amalgamation. Now this chapter has
come to a close, we can continue to
East Ward
focus on delivering the best outcomes for
our community.
There is a lot happening in the City of
Belmont over the next few months.
Celebrate autumn by attending the 2015
Autumn River Festival on Sunday, 29
March. A whole host of free activities
will be on offer including come-andtry kayaks, water ski spectacle, stage
entertainment and not to forget the
famous Kailis fish and chips! The festival
is a great opportunity to spend a relaxed
Sunday by our very own riverfront with
friends and family.
Whether you are a regular cyclist or
even just enjoy the odd bike ride, you
might like to join in the celebrations for
Bikeweek and come along to our annual
Belmont Bike to Work Breakfast on
20 March. This is a great way to help
promote the benefits of cycling with
other cyclists within the City.
Entries are now open for the 2014
Belmont Art and Photographic Awards
and Exhibition. I look forward to seeing
what will no doubt be another fantastic
display of local talent again this year.
Experience the thrill of thoroughbred
racing at the City of Belmont Community
Race Day at Ascot Racecourse on 18
April. Perth Racing and City of Belmont
Council present what will be a great
family fun day for residents and business
owners of the City.

KIDZ FEST ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL
FAMILY EVENT

different ‘lands’ including Fun Land, Sports
Land, Adventure Land and Food Land.
City of Belmont Mayor, Cr Phil Marks
said the event is one of the most
popular on the City’s calendar and
the City is fortunate to hold it in a
magnificent venue such as Faulkner Park.
The atmosphere was fantastic and
kids, big and small, all had a great day
out judging by the smiles on everyone’s
faces.

community events and we always
appreciate the community’s support
in attending them.

SPECIAL EXHIBITION: INSIDE HILL 60:
A HOME’S TRANSFORMATION THROUGH
CONFLICT AND COMPASSION
Part of the 2015 National Trust Heritage Festival April to May 2015
During Museum Opening Hours
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 2pm to 5pm. Groups by appointment.
On the calm banks of the Swan River, behind the bustling Great Eastern
Highway, a small, curious landmark bears the name ‘Hill 60.’ The famous
battle of Hill 60 was the last major assault of the horrific Gallipoli Campaign,
so how did this quaint building take on such a dark name?
The building and its lands have seen some fascinating changes over the years;
it has evolved from a fashionable family home to a Milliner’s mansion, to a
convent for the St John of God sisters and a place of rest and repose.
Belmont Museum invites you to an exciting new exhibition, exploring this
stately home’s transformation through time.
Do you have any memories or photos of Hill 60 you’d like to share? Please
contact the Curator on 9477 7450.

60 from the family members, historians and researchers who have investigated

PARKS &
ENVIRONMENT
CITY WORKING TO IMPROVE
URBAN FOREST
March 21 has been declared International
Day of Forests by the Food and
Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and
the City of Belmont is keen to share
their message about the importance
of forests in our urban environment.
The UFS’s overall objective is to retain
and enhance the City’s urban forest,
with an initial target to “replace lost
canopy to a coverage which meets and
exceeds that of the baseline year
of 2001”.
More and more emphasis is being placed
on trees within the urban environment
which are just as important as their
counterparts in natural forests.
The retention and enhancement of
the urban forest will not only add to
the urban liveability of the City,
but sets the precursor for
healthy communities for
decades to come.
International Day of Forests – ‘Forests |
Climate | Change’ aims to highlight how
forests and climate change are linked.
Forests and trees sustain and protect
us in invaluable and often irreplaceable
ways. They provide clean air, clean water,
habitat for most of the world’s terrestrial
biodiversity, and can even assist us
financially through reducing power bills
and improving our quality of life.
To promote the benefits of trees to its
community, the Council has endorsed
an Urban Forest Strategy (UFS).
The presence of green spaces also
improves our quality of life and can
make us healthier mentally and physically.
Globally and locally, through the
retention of forests, we can mitigate
or potentially prevent the risk of
catastrophic events as a result of
climate change.
The City is drafting a Canopy Plan
which will focus on operational tasks
for retaining, enhancing and managing
our urban forest.
BEYOND GARDENS
FOODSCAPING SEMINAR
10am to 1pm
Saturday, 28 March 2015
City of Belmont Civic Centre, 215 Wright Street, Cloverdale
Sponsored by the Water Corporation.
To celebrate 2015 Earth Hour’s ‘Aussie Farming & Foods’
theme the City will host a Beyond Gardens workshop
on growing healthy nutritious food at home.
Learn more about food-scaping including introduction
of bushfoods into backyards.
Bookings are essential – please register at
www.beyondgardens.com.au or call 1300 369 833.
Light refreshments provided.

Each year the City invites people to apply
for verge/street trees and promotes the
care and retention of trees located on
private and public lands.
To see what else the City is doing for
its urban forest you can visit

City’s Parks and Environment
Department on 9477 7257.

ASCOT/RIVERVALE
RESTORATION PROJECT
With the support of the Western Australian Government State NRM
Program, the City has recently completed a restoration project along
the Ascot and Rivervale foreshore that has resulted in establishment
of nearly 7,000 local native seedlings and 1,100 sedge strips.
This has resulted in improved vegetation connectivity along 2.4
linear kilometres of the Swan River, a Perth Biodiversity Project
regional ecological linkage that is one of the City’s most important
biodiversity corridors.
To experience this environment first hand, residents can cycle
or walk along the recreational foreshore path commencing at
Goodwood Parade boat ramp, reaching Ascot Marina. Look up
at Adachi and Hardey Parks along the way you may spot some
important habitat for insect-eating microbats – keep an eye out for
the path stencils.

BEWARE BOGUS WORKMEN
Bogus ‘workmen’ may say they need to come in to your house to
check something or make urgent repairs.
Residents are urged to be careful of unexpected callers who offer to
make building repairs around your home. Often these ‘workmen’ will
ask for money in advance and may even offer to drive you to the bank
to withdraw money to pay them.
If you need building work done, get several written quotes from
reputable firms, then decide which one is best. If in doubt, talk it
through with a neighbour, a friend or someone in your family.
Before answering the door to anybody make sure these ‘workmen’ are
genuine. Follow our three top tips to keep you safe.
Stop and think
• If a person you don’t know calls at your door first think, ‘am I
expecting anybody?’ Does anybody have an appointment with you?
Lock and look
• Make sure your doors and windows are locked at all times, including
your screen door if you have one. If you have a spy hole or a window
next to your door, have a look to see if you recognise the caller.
10
Check
• Ask to see the caller’s ID. If you are still unsure then call the
company they claim they are from using a phone number from the
phone book, not a number on their identification.
Remember – never feel embarrassed to ask for Proof of ID.
Don’t worry about asking to see identification. Real officials never
mind proving their identity. In fact, they prefer if you do.
If you have any difficulty reading the details on their identification,
ask them to remove it from plastic holders etc, or to give you a
closer look.
If someone ‘flashes’ their ID past your field of vision, ask to see
it properly.
If they are a genuine caller they will be happy to arrange an
appointment for a more convenient time when you can have
somebody else with you.
If in any doubt, call Police on 131 444 immediately. You can also call
the City of Belmont Community Watch on 1300 655 011.
