Tenant Sought for Miss Adam’s House https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/tenant-sought-for-miss-adams-house/ Tue, 13 Aug 2019 06:03:43 +0000 https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/?p=24771 The post Tenant Sought for Miss Adam’s House appeared first on Shire of Murray.

Expressions of Interest for the lease of Miss Adam’s House, an iconic heritage building in Pinjarra’s main street, are being sought.

The Shire of Murray is seeking submissions to lease the site at 6 George Street, Pinjarra for hospitality, tourism or other usage, that will add value and vibrancy to Pinjarra and that integrates the site with the redevelopment of the foreshore reserve and activation of the main street.

According to Shire President Cr. David Bolt, this is a unique and rare opportunity to lease prime real estate on the Pinjarra Foreshore, located at a key entry point to the town’s main street and adjacent to the popular Cantwell Park playground.

“Pinjarra is a rapidly evolving town that services the diverse social and economic needs of a growing community.

“It is Murray’s major regional town and a key tourist destination, particularly known for its heritage attractions.

“Pinjarra is the focus of significant government investment for projects such as the Murray River Square and Foreshore Redevelopment and the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation which will direct heavy haulage traffic away from the town centre, to accommodate improved pedestrian activity and streetscaping.

“Pinjarra will also service the Bushfire Centre of Excellence and Peel Business Park developments,” Cr. Bolt said.

The expressions of interest process is in accordance with Shire efforts to encourage the revitalisation and repurpose of existing heritage buildings, in keeping with the town’s look and feel, to bring new attractions to the area, including projects such as The Court House and Exchange Hotel.

“Submissions need to be sensitive to the heritage significance of the building.

“The Shire’s decision will be based on the manner and extent to which the proposal benefits and activates the town and a competitive rental arrangement will be offered to the right enterprise,” Cr. Bolt said.

Submissions must be received by 4:00pm Friday 11 October, 2019.

For further information interested parties can visit murray.wa.gov.au/6-george-street or contact Manager Governance Rob Marlborough on 08 9531 7718 or mailbag@murray.wa.gov.au.

Miss Adam’s House was built in 1932 as a homestead for sisters Constance and Clara (Claire) Adams, both active community members.

The building has since been used as a beautician’s shop and government offices. Following an extension to the rear of the building in 2002, the building accommodated a travel agency and most recently, a health care service provider.

Joint Chief Executive Officer Appointed for Murray and Waroona https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/joint-chief-executive-officer-appointed-for-murray-and-waroona/ Tue, 13 Aug 2019 04:15:21 +0000 https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/?p=24766 The post Joint Chief Executive Officer Appointed for Murray and Waroona appeared first on Shire of Murray.

In an historic move, the Shires of Murray and Waroona have agreed to take their already successful resource-sharing arrangements to a higher level with the decision by both Councils to appoint a joint Chief Executive Officer.

Both Shires already share Information Technology and Environmental Health functions and Ranger Services.

Further resource sharing opportunities have been a regular topic of discussion and with the retirement of the Waroona CEO later in 2019, both Councils have worked closely to expand resource sharing.

Shire President of Waroona, Cr. Mike Walmsley said that when long-serving CEO Ian Curley recently announced his retirement, it was an opportunity to explore how additional resource sharing could benefit both districts.

“Through the significant trust that has grown through the current resource-sharing arrangements, we have come to an agreement to go to the next level and share the CEO.

“This is new territory, but I feel that not only will there be significant salary savings through sharing a CEO but it will also allow a more strategic and higher-level view of where we can jointly benefit with Murray,” Cr. Walmsley said.

Shire of Murray Shire President Cr. David Bolt agreed that a collective approach would make both organisations and both communities stronger in the long-term. However, there will be no governance structural changes in terms of elected member representation to each community or organisationally.

“While there is significant immediate cost savings in wages and overheads through this decision, the objective is to seek out how and where we can increase sharing arrangements for better service delivery and outcomes for the community and how we can increase collaboration.

“The importance of retaining local decision making at both Waroona and Murray is important, and that will not change. However, we will see real benefits through joint procurement, streamlined processes, the creation of a stronger political voice and realising economies of scale.

“Those benefits can be better realised through one Chief Executive Officer fostering a consistent approach to service delivery.

“I am also very excited about the economic development benefits that can be explored through a joint approach, such as agricultural and industry development, tourism promotion and trails development, just to name a few,” Cr. Bolt said.

The proposal was endorsed by both Councils at individual Special Council meetings held on 13 August with current Shire of Murray CEO Mr. Dean Unsworth as joint Murray-Waroona CEO.  Part of the agreement is that the CEO will spend time in both Shire offices each day to ensure there is the required availability to undertake this role effectively.

Waroona President Cr. Walmsley stated that Mr Unsworth has twenty years of senior experience in local government and knows the Peel region and Waroona very well.

“Dean has helped Murray achieve many positive outcomes in his twelve years as CEO. Some of those changes have already benefited Waroona through the resource-sharing initiatives that are reaping joint benefits between the two Shires.

“He is very aware of the challenges ahead, but with the knowledge he has of Waroona and the Peel region I am confident he will hit the ground running and instil positive change to our organisation and the district,” Cr. Walmsley said.

Both Shire Presidents stated that a joint Resource-Sharing Committee will meet at least every quarter and will help guide the sharing arrangement and review the performance of the project.

Waroona Shire President Cr. Walmsley paid tribute to outgoing CEO Ian Curley for his service to the Waroona community.

“On behalf of the Waroona Council and community, I would personally like to thank Ian for his dedicated service over the past 15 years,” Cr. Walmsley said.

The new arrangement in sharing the CEO will commence in the coming months.

Exchange Hotel a Step Closer to Revitalisation https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/exchange-hotel-a-step-closer-to-revitalisation/ Fri, 09 Aug 2019 08:46:32 +0000 https://www.murray.wa.gov.au/?p=24760 The post Exchange Hotel a Step Closer to Revitalisation appeared first on Shire of Murray.

]]>

Conservation works at the former Exchange Hotel site are complete, with significant heritage sections protected and the potential of the site exposed to entice developers.

The works, which commenced in February 2019 thanks to funding assistance from Alcoa, were undertaken to protect the 1866 Dr Bedingfeld Cottage and 1925 accommodation, kitchen and dining sections that were mostly hidden behind building extensions added onto the heritage components in subsequent years.

According to Shire President Cr. David Bolt, the works have made it clear for prospective development proponents, the sections of the building that need to be incorporated into future development.

“Works further de-risked the site through the completion of structural repairs and reroofing including the installation of new roof plumbing,” Cr. Bolt said.

External building sections of non-heritage significance have been removed.

The Shire aspires for a quality, family friendly food and beverage establishment to be developed, with negotiations ongoing with potential developers/operators.

“The Shire has received a number of enquiries over several years via expressions of interest and an on-site advertising process, and is working diligently to ensure that the right proponent, with a sustainable and befitting proposal is approved to develop the key site, in line with Council’s vision and community expectations.

“Achieving a quality outcome has the potential to stimulate further private investment in the town, support the local economy and activate the surrounding heritage precinct and adjacent foreshore,” Cr. Bolt said.

The Exchange Hotel has a close association with the development and growth of Pinjarra, having operated continuously as a hotel since 1871, until it closed in 2008.

Council purchased the site in 2012 after it sat vacant for a number of years, to ensure the protection of the heritage assets and its development in line with the town’s character.

“Since purchasing the site the Shire has excised the foreshore and town square components of the property, ensuring public ownership and access to this enviable recreational asset,” Cr. Bolt said.

Residents and visitors to Pinjarra will soon enjoy improved recreation opportunities within a revitalised Murray River Square and adjacent foreshore reserve, thanks to a $500,000 Lotterywest grant.

Together with funding from Alcoa and the State Government’s Regional Grant Scheme and Local Projects Local Jobs Grant Scheme, the key amenity will be redeveloped to include shaded seating areas, improved pathways and lighting, a small-scale amphitheatre with stage, public art and Aboriginal interpretation as well as improved water accessibility through the construction of a jetty for non-motorised vessels.

Due diligence is ensuring coordination and integration with associated works and/or proposals for adjoining George Street properties including the Exchange Hotel and Police Station.

Detailed design plans, drawings and costings are being finalised with a view to commencing site preparation in late August and major works in September. The Shire anticipates that most of the works will be completed by Christmas, with some elements continuing into 2020.

Member for Murray-Wellington Mrs. Robyn Clarke MLA, on behalf of the State Government through Lotterywest, was proud to present the grant certificate to Shire of Murray President Cr. David Bolt and CEO Mr. Dean Unsworth.

“The Murray River Foreshore in Pinjarra is a vibrant community area which will become even better with the planned redevelopments.

“As the local member, it is vital that we work closely with our Local Government representatives to prioritise projects that create jobs and opportunities for locals, and this is one of those.

“We are all very excited to see the final result, and look forward to further redevelopment in our local communities,” Mrs. Clark said.

Shire President Cr. David Bolt is most grateful for the support for the community-beneficial project.

“The redevelopment of the Murray River Square and adjacent foreshore will create a high quality, vibrant, public space – a focal point for the town.

“It will enhance the character of Pinjarra, integrate with surrounding sites, encourage activity, longer visitation and a diverse range of formal and informal activities including events in both the square and foreshore areas.

“The redevelopment is a pivotal outcome of the Murray River Foreshore Master Plan, adopted by Council in 2015 and follows widespread consultation with the community undertaken as part of the precinct’s concept planning in 2018,” Cr. Bolt said.
