The Town of Bassendean today announced a timeline for the reopening of its facilities.

In late March, the Town closed a number of its buildings and services, as directed by the State Government, to protect staff and the community from the spread of COVID-19.  This included the Library, Customer Service Centre, halls, ovals, playgrounds, skate park and Youth Centre, among others.

Given the falling number of COVID-19 cases in Western Australia, the State Government has announced an easing of restrictions, some of which relate to premises owned by local governments.

The Town of Bassendean is keen to reopen its facilities and we’re working hard to do so safely and comply with State Government requirements.

We are taking a considered approach to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of staff and the community in Ashfield, Bassendean and Eden Hill.


With the State Government easing restrictions, the Town is preparing to reopen premises and services in a considered approach, with safety as its priority.

Many of the Town’s premises and ovals are hired or leased to clubs, community groups and individuals for various purposes.  The Town has clear expectations that hirers and users will adhere to strict safety rules if they want to re-start using facilities. Safety plans must be completed and a signatory from each user group must take responsibility for implementing the plan and documenting the names and contact details of attendees.

The reopening of the Town’s facilities and services is a shared responsibility between the Town and users.  It is important that a collective responsibility be adopted to ensure the safety of our community.  This involves, the Town, community groups and attendees/participants working together.
