Future of Beacon Accommodation

Posted on: Wednesday, 28 June 2017 at 9:46:43 AM

As some will be aware the Beacon Barracks accommodation facility is currently managed by the Shire under a licence to occupy from the Public Transport Authority WA (PTA).

 Unfortunately the Shire has been served with notice under that licence for early termination in June 2018 as the PTA are to demolish the Barracks. Reasons include the potential for large financial out lay dealing with asbestos contained in the building.  

 The CEO is now investigating options regarding accommodation in Beacon once the licence terminates. The notice provides the possibility of the Shire taking over responsibility for the Barracks by application to the Department of Lands.  

 The CEO invites public comment on the future of accommodation in Beacon. What do you think the priorities and needs are regarding accommodation considerations? Would you see the need for replacement accommodation in Beacon, should the Shire not take responsibility for the Barracks? Your written submissions are welcomed via post to PO Box 20, Bencubbin, WA, in person at the Shire office or email ceo@mtmarshall.wa.gov.au before 4pm, 31 July. Submissions already received will be taken into consideration and there is no need to resubmit them.
