Perth Council talks Rocky Ramp situation one last time in 2021
The year just couldn’t end for Perth’s Committee of the Whole, without another discussion on the rocky ramp.
The rocky ramp structure in the Tay River was connected to a Thom street property owner’s concern, with sediment and vegetation built up on their shore from low water flows.
They were requesting the town remove the deposits and cut back the growth at no expense to them.
Staff indicated a number of government departments and the conservation authority would need to approve any such work and physical access to the site was only 4 meters wide.
Without a permanent solution to low water flows, they indicated the problem was certain to return.
As the rocky ramp redesign discussion is scheduled to come back to council in the first quarter of next year, the committee voted to defer the request to that date.
