Mosman Park Secures Funds to Care for Both River and Sea

The Town of Mosman Park has secured grant funding to care for both its Indian Ocean coastline and Swan River bank in two separate announcements by the State Government in recent days.

In partnership with the City of Fremantle, the Town successfully applied for a Coastal Adaptation and Protection grant – the Port Leighton and Mosman Beach coastal monitoring program (Year 2), provided by the Western Australian Department of Transport at a value of $12,500.

The grant will continue the work that began with last year’s grant-funded project, which commenced the monitoring of the stretch of coastline from Mosman Beach to Port Beach, as recommended in the Coastal Hazard Risk Management Adaption Plan (CHRMAP).

The CHRMAP, endorsed by council in November 2017, identifies risks to coastal assets, and community values, from the coastal processes of sea level rise, coastal erosion and accretion, and inundation and developed a planning and management response to those risks.

In addition, this week the Town has was also successful in its application for a Riverbank grant for Point Roe Park. The grant for $15,030, along with the Town’s partnership contribution of $15,125, will allow further revegetation of the salt marsh sedgeland, a recognised Threatened Ecological Community, and enhance the area for the waterbirds that use the site. Some of these birds, such as the Common Sandpiper and Crested Tern, are considered vulnerable species.  The grant also includes a bird hide to help raise the awareness of these waterbirds and educate the community on how they can help protect these water birds.

Mayor Pollock was delighted that the State Government had recognised the importance of the maintenance and preservation of the Town’s ocean and river frontages and looked forward to a continued partnership that would monitor, restore and protect these zones into the future.

“We live Between River and Sea - that is who we are, and many people choose to live in Mosman Park because they want to get close to nature.  It is our responsibility, in partnership with the State Government and our volunteers, to keep these places safe for future generations to enjoy.”

Mosman Park Plans for a Green and Leafy Future

The Town of Mosman Park is seeking community input about the draft Street Tree Masterplan that was created based upon community values and aspirations for Mosman Park streetscapes both now and into the future.

Trees in our suburbs are an essential part of building strong and resilient cities as we battle new challenges such as declining rainfall and rising temperatures which are linked to climate change.

Urban trees provide us with shade, protection from the harsh Perth elements, habitat for birds, and purification of the air.  Recent research has been showing trees to play a role in increasing property values by up to 5%, as well as increasing social cohesion among the local community.

The draft Street Tree Masterplan provides a current snap shot of the Town’s streetscapes in terms of performance, diversity, health, and more, and provides recommendations for improvement in the short, medium, and long term.  Part of these recommendations is the expansion of the Town’s canopy by 350 trees per year and broadening the tree species to beyond the traditional peppermint and bottlebrush trees to include other much-loved tree styles.

“Our Town is committed to extending our tree canopy each year, as a way to offset the heat sink that is caused in built-up communities and maintain Mosman Park as the green, leafy oasis it is.  Trees provide shade and visual appeal, enhancing our streetscapes, parks and reserves and bushlands and this draft Master Plan guides the choice of species and planting locations for our Town for years to come,” Mayor Pollock said.

The Town invites interested parties to view and download a copy of the draft Street Tree Masterplan from this link
