Freo's View

Driving through White Gum Valley it looks like there is a Valley Verges project going on with many home owners planting verge gardens and even vegetable gardens.

They are assisted by the City of Fremantle’s Verge Preparation Assistance Scheme which offers free mulch and street trees, subsidised native plants and expert advise.

It’s looking great already!

    Haven’t received any photos Clayton, but will go for a drive myself in the next couple of days to have a look.

    Roel, it’s not just Stevens St., it’s WGV as a whole. Please consider posting the photos I’ve sent you to balance the discussion. All these photos were taken today without getting out of my car and are just a random selection that took 10 minutes to get.

    Yes, you complained about that previously, Clayton and the issue of long-term parking at Stevens Street along the golf course and Boo park needs to be addressed.

    Roel you are almost always positive in your comments and you certainly have highlighted some nice work by caring homeowners but for every example of a beautiful native garden there are two WGV Verges that are used as parking lots or storage areas for cars, trucks, boats, trailers and caravans.

    The big Valley Verges need Council to take control and establish a policy for private use, at the moment they’re happy to ignore what they don’t see as a problem.
