Claremont Ahead - town of Claremont

Mayor Jock Barker

April Update


Dear residents,

The Town of Claremont has been shortlisted in the Creativity and Culture category at the National Awards for Local Government, celebrating the wonderful annual arts program at the Town. The program provides a diverse mix of opportunities for social and economic development, including community events, the biennial Art Awards, mentoring opportunities, and Claremont’s public art trail. You can vote for the Town via this link.

Adopt a Tree program

I’m pleased to announce our new Adopt a Tree program which aims to help restore Claremont’s canopy as the Polyphagous shot hole borer continues to affect trees across Perth. This new initiative gives residents the chance to sponsor the planting of a tree with the option of adding a customised plaque to their ‘adopted’ tree. Adopters can choose the size of tree from a selection of species which are more resilient to the destructive borer. Find out more about the Adopt a Tree program here.

Luminous Street Festival

Claremont Town Centre will again transform into a glowing wonderland as Luminous Street Festival (formerly Neon Night Trail) comes to Bay View Terrace on April 12 and 13. A variety of light-based installations, interactive art, entertainment, and performances will fill the main street and other pockets of the Town Centre. Bay View Terrace will be closed to cars which will help provide a street festival atmosphere at the northern end. I’m looking forward to seeing people of all ages enjoying the event.

Name the Centre

Our new community centre is not far from opening, but it still needs a name! Enter the competition to name the community centre for your chance to win a brand-new Apple iPad. Details on the 'name your community space' competition can be found here.
