2016-17 budget

Council adopted the 2016-17 budget at a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday 19 July, endorsing a 4.1 per cent rate increase. The increase accounts for a normal operational increase of 1 per cent and 3.1 per cent as a direct result from the City of Perth Act.
 
We’ve made significant changes to keep this year’s rate rise to a minimum. In a tough economic climate, and faced with the financial fallout of the Act, we’ve reduced our annual operating budget by $3 million, while working hard to continue delivering valuable services to the community and securing a bright and stable future for the city.

Planning consultation goes online

Did you know that you can now comment on standard development applications online?
 
Community feedback on development proposals is an important part of the planning process. We’re making public consultation easier, more efficient and environmentally friendly by conducting it on our community engagement hub Have your say Subiaco.
 
When a development application is lodged, nearby residents and landowners will receive information about the proposal with a link to Have your say Subiaco where they’ll be able to view proposed plans and make a submission online.
 

Lets go fly a kite

Do you recognise the new sculpture outside Subiaco Library? It has been in Subiaco for many years, but has recently found a new home on the corner of Rokeby and Bagot roads, welcoming people to the library. 

The bronze sculpture, Kite Children, was formerly located at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children and was donated to the City of Subiaco by the Telethon Kids Institute. Kite Children is by Yanchep artist Owen Davies and it was donated to Princess Margaret Hospital in 1999 by Senior ENT Surgeon at PMH Dr Harvey Coates AO.
