There's lots happening in Port Mandurah. Don't forget to have your say.

New PMRA Committee

Our Annual General Meeting was held on 6th April. Please click here for the President’s Report.
Our special guest speaker was Simon Hudson, Infrastructure Manager for the City of Mandurah, who updated us about the bridge replacement.
It was heartening to hear that the bridge was ahead of schedule and that the City is doing everything in its power to minimise closures and disruptions.

The following members were elected to the committee at the AGM:

President: Kerrie Andrews
Vice President: Angela Cream
Treasurer: Steve Pearson
Secretary: Linda Thorpe
Waterways Rep: Crawford Flaherty
Events: Thelma Jessop and Una Hird
Committee Member: Dianne O’Driscoll
We still have several vacancies on the committee should you wish to join us. Please email us at info@portmandurah.com.au for information.

Sutton Farm

Visit Have Your Say Mandurah to comment on the proposed Local Development Plan.

The WA Heritage Act (1990) stipulates that the heritage value of a building should be conserved, or preferably enhanced, by any proposed development. To this end, the PMRA Committee supports
independent heritage impact statements at every stage, and also the retention of trees.
We do not support any dwarfing of the heritage buildings by development, or domination of this heritage site by new buildings. Neither do we support a nightclub or tavern.

Mandurah’s Dolphins make a Splash!
If you missed the Today Tonight feature on our local dolphins, please click here to view it on our facebook page. Did you know that the Mandurah Volunteer Dolphin Rescue Group is based right here in Port Mandurah? Coordinated by PMRA members the Kirbys, they have been been rescuing dolphins for 20 years! This volunteer group was in the news last month when they rescued a baby dolphin from the shallows. See below.
They are raising funds for much needed equipment to rescue stranded dolphins and whales. Visit their fundraising page for details. Please share this information to help them reach their target.
Mandurah Cruises is having a 70s & 80s party to help raise funds for this worthy cause. Click here for more.


Speeding Boats

There are a couple of different ways that you can report speeding boats or any other marine incident:
1. Fill out this form and return it to the address on the form. If you note the offending vessel’s registration number and other details like date, time, speed etc. and are also willing to go to court, then the Department of Transport can take action. This action will most likely be in the way of a Boating Caution.
If these details are not recorded then you can still send in the form so that the problem can be addressed in a broader way, like signage or increasing patrols in that area.
2. If you witness what you think to be a dangerous or potentially dangerous activity then call the 24hr Water Police number 9442 8600. This will get the next available patrol out to the area.

Bridge Replacement - Project Update

The Old Mandurah Bridge Replacement project is nearing the final stages of reaching the Western Foreshore. With this comes the next stage of the project....
You are invited to join Main Roads, Georgiou and the City of Mandurah for a community information session about the construction activities and the planned closures of Mandurah Terrace on Wednesday 17 May at 9am for a 9.15 start at Mandurah Offshore Fishing and Sailing Club (115 Breakwater Parade, Mandurah).
RSVP by Friday 12 May to haveyoursaymandurah@mandurah.wa.gov.au

Jetty Repairs
The damaged jetty near the Leeward Entrance was reported last year and was fenced off. The City decided to repair like for like. The existing timbers are seasoned jarrah and it took a while for stocks to be found and seasoned. These will be ready to install in July.

Verge Trees

Members are reminded that verge trees are considered to be community assets (regardless of who planted them). It is illegal to prune or remove them without authorisation from the City of Mandurah.
Under the provisions of the City’s Consolidated Local Laws or Local Government (Uniform Local Provisions) Regulations 1996 in cases that warrant, the City will take enforcement action when there is a clear breach of the law using evidence – such as photos/videos, witness statements and interviewing the alleged offender to substantiate any claims.
The City has a list of “preferred trees”. Ratepayers who plant non-preferred trees will be required to remove them. Click here for more.
