Today an article was posted to the Mercury website about the cleanup that is currently underway in Clarendon Vale to remove the car wrecks that have accumulated on Private Property around the back of Acme St and Stokell Creek. As with any story, there’s a whole lot more that’s gone on behind the scenes that many would be unaware of.

For some time residents across Clarence Plains have been disappointed by the level of hooning, vehicle fires and car dumping that happens.  The vacant land around Clarendon Vale has been the worst hit.  Locals want to live in an area that they can be proud of – that is free from rubbish and safe for kids.  Along with support from local services local residents are determined to make a difference and see this issue stamped out completely.  Because the community spoke up we’re all joining as “One Community Together” to do something about it.  Just this week work started on the removal of car wrecks around Acme Street and Stokell Creek. A community awareness program will be launched and barriers will be erected to make it much more difficult for people to get cars onto the private land where they’ve dumped them in the past.

Well done to local residents for raising this issue through the Police, Clarence City Council and One Community Together – your action and commitment to a better community has made this happen!!!
