SAY NO TO REZONING OF PLAYING FIELDS IN METROPOLITAN PERTH

Perth’s green open space is fast disappearing under a tsunami of housing development. The result is a desperate shortage of green fields and playing field space for our local communities and kids’ sport.

In particular, this increasing lack of sporting space is impacting the capacity to expand the thriving participation of girls in sports previously played only by boys. 

The private boys‘ school, which owns the fields, wants the open green space and ‘Bush Forever site’ turned into housing.  

We say the zoning of the Mount Claremont Fields which bound Bold Park, must remain as PARKS AND RECREATION, consistent with the land use for the past 60 years,  and to retain its benefit for the entire community.

We Say

 - If it happens here it can happen to YOUR green space  - ownership and zonings mean NOTHING

- The school is NOT a PROPERTY DEVELOPER it IS an EDUCATOR 

- The school board has a wonderful opportunity to lead by example and sell the playing fields to one of the many private girls’ schools, which are desperate for green spaces, public schools or sporting clubs which could use the land as PARKS & RECREATION, its original and intended use.

 - It could be an amazing site for Sport, Outdoor Ed, Mountain bike or Pump Trails, Environment and Culture 

- The school was effectively gifted the site on very good terms due to its zoning of Parks and Recreation

The Mt Claremont Fields border Bold Park on two sides, and provide an important bushfire buffer, that helps protect existing residents, as well as the diverse flora and fauna of Bold Park, a recognised national biodiversity hotspot.
