Ladder reprieve

FITNESS junkies have scored a win over weary neighbours following a decision by the lands minister Terry Redman to keep Jacobs Ladder open without restrictions.

The hideously steep staircase is a popular exercise spot for early-birds, but was last year threatened with a  curfew after neighbours complained about the noise.

The City of Perth acknowledged the minister’s decision on its website and included a promise to minimise any impacts on residents.

• Jacobs Ladder in West Perth will remain open 24/7 despite neighbourhood noise complaints.

• Jacobs Ladder in West Perth will remain open 24/7 despite neighbourhood noise complaints.

“The city recognises Jacobs Ladder as an important tourist and fitness destination, and will continue to work to strike a balance between recreational use and disruption to nearby residents,” the web statement said.

“The City has implemented ranger patrols, monitoring of group fitness classes and signage reminding people to be considerate.”
