CITY of Bayswater residents and businesses who branched out with their green thumbs have been recognised in the 2009 Garden Awards.

Strutt Way in Noranda was named best-kept street and will receive a special street sign recognising the achievement while Mr and Mrs Moretti from Noranda’s Dawson Close had the best residential garden, winning a $500 prize and plaque.

Winners in other categories were:
• Best waterwise garden: Alison Cooper, from Drake Street, Morley.
• Best garden – independent living unit for aged persons: Unit 7, Noranda Retreat.
• Best landscaped commercial or industrial complex: Fewster and Stone in Embleton.

The City of Bayswater’s Christmas lights competition was re-introduced this year with 54 Armstrong Way, Noranda, deemed to have the best festive display.

“The standard of entries in all categories was remarkably high and the judges had an unenviable job in deciding the overall winners,” Bayswater Mayor Terry Kenyon said.

“The Garden Awards were designed to tie in with the City of Bayswater’s award-winning Garden City theme and it’s wonderful to see so many residents embracing this concept by taking pride in their surroundings and the look of their gardens and streets.

“Everyone who was nominated should be justifiably proud of their efforts and the enormous contribution they’ve made in helping to make our community even more beautiful.”

Mayor Kenyon said the best independent living unit garden category was added this year to widen community participation.

“People in independent living units invest a lot of time and effort into their gardens and this improves the quality and lifestyle for all residents living within those complexes,” he said.

"The Garden Awards program is our way of thanking and celebrating Bayswater's gardening champions who, in turn, help to make the City a better place to live.”

City of Bayswater

The City of Bayswater is a local government area in the inner north-eastern suburbs of the West Australian capital city of Perth, about 9km north-east of Perth's CBD, and includes the suburbs of Bayswater, Beford, Embleton, Maylands, Morley and Noranda and parts of Mount Lawley and Dianella. It covers an area of 32.8 square kilometres and has a population of 55,801.

Originally, the Bayswater Road District was created in 1897 and, in 1961, it became a shire before attaining City status in 1983. The City of Bayswater is divided into four wards and represented by 11 councillors with the Mayor elected from among the councillors.

Recent developments in the City of Bayswater include the opening of the Galleria shopping centre in 1994, on the site of the old Boans building that burnt down in 1986. Morley is now the largest commercial district outside of Perth and Fremantle and further growth is expected.
