Current Consultation Projects
Ashton Avenue - raised plateaus on either side of Second Avenue
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to install raised plateaus on Ashton Avenue with the intent of lowering vehicle speeds travelling past the Second Avenue intersection.
Lowering speeds will create a safer environment for drivers, pedestrians and visitors to the local shopping strip. The proposal suggets the construction of two small plateaus - one on either side of the Second Avenue intersection.
For further information on the project please review the minutes from the Ordinary Council Meeting on 4 July, 2017 on this webiste. All feedback will be presented to Council for consideration prior to the project details being finalised. Please download this form, complete and return to Town of Claremont no later than 5pm on Friday 25 August, 2017.

to view a map of properties within the Town that do not currenty have underground power. The owners of these properties were urged to complete a short survey to indicate support or otherwise for proceeding with a project to sink power lines in this area.
The undergrounding of power to the final pocket of the Town of Claremont was supported by more than 80% of survey respondents and, as such, the project will commence within the 2017-18 financial year.
Over the coming months, the Town will work with Western Power to develop a scope of works for the project, which is likely to then proceed early in 2018.
