City Announces Latest Updates for Pickering Brook Projects

29 January 2024 4:05 PM

The City of Kalamunda is pleased to provide the community with significant updates on two of its current Advocacy Projects – the Pickering Brook Volunteer Bushfire Brigade Building and the Pickering Brook Community Hub – reflecting a strong commitment to enhancing the liveability and safety of the local community.

Earlier this month, the City received a Landgate notification confirming the successful completion of the process to add an additional Reserve Purpose to Reserve 52678. This designation specifically identifies the area as a ‘Fire Station’ marking a crucial step forward in the realisation of the new Pickering Brook Volunteer Bushfire Brigade Building. 

Mayor Margaret Thomas remarked, "This achievement is especially significant and means we are one step closer to making the new building a reality. This initiative is a key undertaking by the City, aligning seamlessly with the Government of Western Australia's endorsement of the Pickering Brook future planning blueprint.

Also, the City has appointed Gresley Abas to undertake concept plans and cost assessments for the Pickering Brook Community Hub. This crucial phase will pave the way for a community workshop to gather feedback on the concepts, aiding in determining the next steps of this important initiative. 

"We appreciate the ongoing patience and enthusiasm of the Pickering Brook community,” said Mayor Thomas. “Your support is instrumental as we work diligently to bring new amenities to the area, enhancing its liveability and ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents. 

Both projects are a testament to our commitment to providing necessary facilities to cater to the current and growing population in Pickering Brook and we will continue advocating for funding to bring them to reality.
