Town of Cottesloe Needs to Hear This

Support your wish for smaller, high quality, eco community style housing and apartment choices  for all age groups in Cottesloe specifically around transport oriented (train/bus/cycling/walking) development.

The Town of Cottesloe will vote on Tuesday 20th September 2016 Special Meeting 6pm regarding your support for rezoning this corner of Congdon/Railway Streets for a small residential unit eco village, mixed use, mixed ages.

Yes, there are some loud voices marshalling opinion against it, bullying and intimidating people. We went to Council 23rd August and a Councillor (Boulter) attempted to put an illegal motion to rescind the earlier Town of Cottesloe permission.

The following day the recision motion was declared illegal and the whole debilitating experience will be re-run on the 20th September.

People are allowed to stand up at Council meetings and give their opinions as if they are true facts, without any regard to evidence. Nobody corrects them or asks for proof of their accusations. In Cottesloe's case the negative case presenters have become loud, aggressive and intimidating to those speaking for our project.

On Tuesday there may be more of the same unacceptable behaviour.

Please come along to balance the room with your positive energy. Even at this late stage you can email Councillors of the Town of Cottesloe ( write to all ) and let them know your wishes regarding alternative sizes of residences, houses and apartments especially the need for stylish, creative ways to house the future growing population of Perth.

Let's put a stop to the people preventing progress in Cottesloe. The "not in my backyard" cry is from a small, non-representative group. The voice of the silent majority of reasonable, progressive people needs to be heard and recognised.

Architect Kristien Ring at The Goods Shed Claremont

Architect Kristien Ring is currently visiting Perth and will give the Dean's lecture at the University of Western Australia tonight. Kristien's host, Professor Geoffrey London, arranged for a very interesting  information night at the newly opened art space, The Goods Shed, Claremont, courtesy of FORM and PerthAlive.

Kristien, author of 'Self Made City', described how groups of individuals had created and financed the building of intergenerational housing to demonstrate what can be done to revitalise towns and cities. They came up with comprehensive solutions for multi-age grouped living, combining retail, residential and business under one roof. 

All these initiatives are espoused in the Swanbourne Village Trust development. We are at the cutting edge of change.

VISIT KRISTIEN'S EXHIBITION 'SELF MADE CITY' AT THE CULLITY GALLERY UWA

 Kristien demonstrated how vibrant neighbourhoods had been created in Berlin, incorporating  sustainable and sociable spaces around an active transport system. 

During the Q&A session Garry described the Swanbourne Village Trust initiative to Geoffrey.

Everlastings in Bloom August 2016

The field of everlastings have come to full bloom with the excellent winter rainfall. The project land for Swanbourne Village Trust has turned into a sea of pinks and yellows.  

This could have been left as rocks and debris, but the extra care taken to seed the ground last year, then install Max Ball's beautiful sculpture has brought beauty to this corner, where dilapidated houses once stood.

Community Interest

Outside Swanbourne Post Office Saturday 2nd July 2016

 

We brought layouts, plans, photographs and information to the table outside The Swanbourne Post Office on Saturday 2nd July.  

Residents and shoppers stopped by to look at the layouts, various design aspects and learn about our vision for the Swanbourne Village Trust development. Being election day, everyone who had already voted was heading for their coffee at either The Daily, The BookCaffe or The Other Side.

There was a congenial community atmosphere and much genuine interest.  We wanted local residents to have this opportunity to meet some of the people involved in the Swanbourne Village Trust development and be able to put faces to the names.

Sculpture for Swanbourne


A newly installed sculpture on the corner of Congdon Street in Swanbourne Village demonstrates how vacant land can be made to look attractive while waiting for a project to start.

Max Ball, sculptor, has created a free form design of leaves to enhance the corner site. Despite the fluid appearance of the leaves, closer investigation shows them to be of sturdy solid steel, with many different coatings to reflect the subtle play of light during the day.

Embracing natural elements fits well with the planned residential designs for the Swanbourne Village Trust residences to be created on this site. The open and airy sculpture heralds the vision of gardens and water features to be threaded through the buildings.
