Comment sought on naming the Ashfield fishing platform
The Town of Bassendean is seeking public comment for the proposed naming of the fishing/viewing platform at the bottom of the French Street steps in Ashfield, in recognition of local Ashfield resident, the late Mr Roy Hookway, who passed away on 14 August, aged 85.
Mr Hookway was a well-known local and one of our longest serving residents of Ashfield having purchased a block in Ashfield Parade in 1953 for £250. He made a significant contribution to the development of Ashfield. In his later years Roy was a familiar face walking his dog down along the river where he would always have time for a chat.
The AshfieldCAN raised the request and Council has approved in principle the platform being named the ‘Roy Hookway Platform’ and is seeking public comment on the proposal. A report will be referred to Council at the conclusion of the comment period for a final determination.
Landgate has confirmed the fishing platform has no registered name at present, and supports it being named to assist emergency services attending to any call outs.
Comments are to be received by the close of business on Monday 16 January 2012 and should be addressed to the CEO, Mr Bob Jarvis, Town of Bassendean, PO Box 87, Bassendean WA 6934, or by email.
For further information on this proposal, or on the AshfieldCAN, call Graeme Haggart on 9377 8016.
