A Message from the City of Cockburn


Safety and the Rubbish Trucks:

I hope you’re all enjoying this lovely Summer weather and looking forward to the Christmas break.

With children on school holidays, while we are pleased to see a number of children enjoying the outdoors at the Naval Base Shacks, our Rubbish Collection Truck Drivers are finding it difficult to weave through children playing close by to the trucks/bins and playing on the road.

During Bin Collection times could all children please keep off the roads and please keep a distance of 10m away from the trucks, as the children’s safety is the City’s and the associations primary concern.


About Naval Base Shacks

The City manages the Naval Base Holiday Park, which comprises 176 shacks located on the shores of Cockburn Sound, at the very southern tip of the City along Cockburn Road.

Management Plan 

The City endorsed the preperation of a Management Plan for Reserve 24308 at the 10 May 2012 Ordinary Meeting of Council.
To assist in the preparation of the draft Management Plan the City established a community reference group to provide input to the City. The reference group was made up of shack lessees who represented the views of the shack lessees and in partnership with technical officers and Elected Members representatives; the draft was prepared and sent to all lessees for their comment. The closing date for submissions was 17 January 2014.
The Management Plan for the reserve is now in place, setting out how future improvements to the site will be managed. Some infrastructure works were scheduled for early 2015 and have been commenced;
- Improved street lighting
- Bench seats installed
- Line markings   
The City will continue to progress the various works and upgrades indentifed in the Management Plan to the park.

Planning Policies

Council at the 12 March 2015 Ordinary Meeting of Council Adopted APD4 'Public Open Space' & APD65 'Naval Base Holiday Park - Heritage Area' for Final Approval.
APD4 provides a strategic overview of how public open space should be addressed in relation to the assessment of structure plans and subdivision applications. APD65 focuses on providing a statutory policy that will guide future additions or alterations to existing structures and how new structures should be built.
A copy of both policies are available via the links in the above paragraph and also under Planning and Development document to the right of this page.
