Perth City Council Ordinary Council Meeting September 27, 2022
A NEW ‘elegant’ adult store can open up at 129 Barrack Street after winning approval from Perth council. Some neighbours were concerned Pink Rabbit Adult Boutique might bring in some unsavoury customers, but the owner assured the council they wanted to run a tasteful shop that would be welcoming to
all demographics (“Adult shop pledge for ‘good crowds’,” Voice, September 24, 2022). Council staff said the place would be good for the area and councillors unanimously voted in favour or allowing Pink Rabbit to open.
THE 10th Light Horse Regiment will be given “Freedom of Entry” to the City of Perth after councillors unanimously backed the idea from lord mayor Basil Zempilas. He said “the 10th Light Horse Regiment is steeped in Western Australian history” and deserved the right to march through the streets, a rare honour only given to trusted military outfits. A parade is to come and $30,000 has been budgeted for the bestowal.
THE first hurdle’s been crossed in getting a street renamed after one of the few Indian ANZACs. The consulate general of India has requested a street be named after Private Nain Singh Sailani to honour the Indian Anzacs and the link between India and Australia. Pte Sailani died in June 1917
in Belgium and is buried there in Ploegsteert Wood alongside fellow ANZACs. Perth council this week approved going out to public consultation over the plan to give the new name “Sailani Avenue” to Nelson Avenue, East Perth, which is currently named for the British admiral Horatio Nelson.
