Mayor's message

Claremont Ahead - town of Claremont

Mayor Jock Barker

June Update


Dear residents,

Works at the Aquatic Centre and the newly named Bay View Community Centre are nearing completion. Wet weather only slightly delayed the construction of a First Aid Room and new paving at the pool. Thank you to patrons for your patience while we complete these important works.

Youth Photography Competition

The top 24 finalists from the Town’s Youth Photography competition can be seen on display at the Claremont Community Hub & Library. It has been a joy to see our young people’s creativity in capturing the theme of ‘what makes you happy’. The winners will be announced on 20 June and I thank all those who entered by getting behind the lens. I encourage you to view the wonderful images which are on display until 28 June.

Winter Planting

The much needed rain has ensured a blossoming start to the Town’s winter tree planting program. Keep an eye out for juvenile and semi-mature trees at the Lake, set to enhance the Town’s green and leafy canopy. We look forward to some further rainfall to replenish the dry lake bed and welcome back the local fauna that have missed this natural asset.


The winter edition of Flourish magazine is arriving at a letterbox near you. Inside you’ll see the newly arrived mural in Claremont Crescent, Artist in Residence program, July luxury nights in the town centre, and much more. Grab a hard copy or read online here.

Next Ordinary Council Meeting

The next Council meeting will be held on Tuesday 25 June. Information on council meetings can be found here.
