The $10,000 grant will go towards upgrades to CCTV in Kangaroo Inn’s carpark, driveway, rear entry and outside recreational area.

Chair of Commissioners Eric Lumsden said the upgrades showed the City’s commitment to increasing the overall appearance, vibrancy and competitive advantage of businesses in the area.

“The East End is strategically located and is attracting significant interest for enhancement through public and private investment,” Mr Lumsden said.

“The location is also close to future redevelopments such as the redeveloped Western Power building and within the pedestrian path to the recently opened Westin Hotel.”

The city’s East End (bounded by Barrack, Wellington, Hill Streets and St Georges Terrace) is located adjacent to the city’s core (Elizabeth Quay, Hay and Murray Street Malls, the Central Train Station and the Cultural Precinct) and connects this core to redevelopment areas on the eastern riverfront including Perth Stadium, Waterbank and the broader Riverside precinct.

The East End Improvement Model was adopted by Council last year, and grants complement current and programmed public realm enhancement projects.

The upgrades will be carried out by the end of the month.
