Stockland and TCA have been receiving questions regarding the construction opposite to the dog park on Abelia Road.
This is the new Opal Aged Care facility.
Opal Aged Care’s new home, Treeby Parklands Care Community, is progressing well with construction expected to reach completion in September 2020. Opal Aged Care offers high-quality clinical care, social and recreational programs, and community connections in a friendly and inviting atmosphere for residents and their families. The Opal care home will also include a café and physio rehab clinic which will be open to the wider Calleya/Treeby Community.
Today Treeby Community Association executive team had a bi-monthly meeting in our community garden. Many topics are on the table for discussion, and there is one that I would like to share with all of you (residents of Treeby) here.
As a few of you probably read on our WhatsApp group or our Treeby Crime Watch FB group that there have been a few thefts around the area, as well as 4WD intrusion near Ghostgum roundabout. CoSafe and Police were informed of these activities and subsequently, they are logged.
In the last Neighbourhood Watch meeting the statistics for April 2020 are released and here is Treeby.
As you can see there is a jump between the incidents in February 2020 and April 2020. This is due to multiple factors such as COVID-19 lockdown, unemployment, and being a new construction area are easy targets.
Regardless of the result, I have to applause our community for staying vigilant and keeping eyes around our estate. There are many instances where our community came together and deter suspicious activities. By working together we can make our estate safer for everyone!
Thank you all. We hope the number will drop back down in our next meeting.
We urge you to report any incidents or suspicious activities to the following organisations. Just remember that CrimeStoppers is an intelligence database that sends information out to relevant departments to action. When calling the police or CrimeStoppers, call CoSafe as well as often they are closer to the incident than the police.

The City has been working with a Community Reference Group and Architect to complete a draft design for a new Community and Sports Centre in Treeby. The purpose of this facility is to serve the local community and sporting groups, given their growing numbers and needs.
The draft design for this new Community and Sports Centre was developed based on community feedback from early 2019, when we asked our residents what kind of spaces and activities were most important to them. With a construction budget of approximately $5.5 million, the draft design includes elements such as an activity room, "wet" arts and crafts space, a function room, external play area and more.

Thank you to all for adhering to the social distancing practices in the last few weeks. A huge thanks to members in our community that are in the front line protecting us all 👏. Also, a big thanks to our residents who offered up their time to help those in need. We had witnessed many positive interactions on our Facebook and WhatsApp group. It really shows that we are stronger together as a community 💪.
It is a time for strength, humanity and kindness. 💕🤝
This week, our Treeby Gardening Committee had been working on a fun secret project. We would like to introduce Carl, our Community Garden Scarecrow, he will be a permanent resident there while guarding ours produces. 😊
Feel free to drop by and say hi to Carl! 👋
A while back we introduced Nextdoor in our TCA Facebook group. The member has been slowly increasing over the past 6 months. Just today we hit 237 members in 189 households. That is 15% of Calleya!! That is amazing.
I know this may be just 'another social platform' for some, but the great thing about Nextdoor is that anything shared in this neighbourhood will only be read by the residents in Treeby. Unlike Facebook groups where it is hard to control who joins the group.
If you see trash along your road or in your neighborhood, please take the time to pick it up and throw it away 🚮. If you are at the park, please use the public bins for your trash, cigarette butts, and finished cans/bottles.
Please be considerate of others who also might be walking where you have walked by disposing of your dog waste💩. Doggie bags are available in the yellow tubes located throughout the estate. If the doggie bags run out, please report it to Cockburn council firstname.lastname@example.org.
If every person just took a few minutes each week to dispose of trash, we could easily keep our community beautiful ✨! Thank you for your time and contribution! 😍

Access provisions will be in place for Solomon Read residents.
There is an update from City of Cockburn regarding the installation of sports floodlighting over the coming months at our Treeby Reserve (Oval). A formal letter should be making rounds in our estate. You can also read about it here!
The City of Cockburn with the support of the Federal Governments (Sport Australia) Community Sport Infrastructure Program is scheduled to install four new sports floodlighting towers over the period of March to June 2020 on Treeby Reserve, corner of Clementine Blvd and Sapphire Dve, Treeby.
On the next page is a map outlining where the floodlighting towers will be located and some Frequently Asked Questions.
The sports floodlighting will use LED lights and will allow both sporting clubs and the wider community to use the reserve at night.
Notably, the installation will include a community light that enables low level lighting at night when the reserve is not being used by a sporting club. This light will enable basic leisure activities to occur (walking or running) and will discourage anti-social behaviour.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why has Treeby Reserve been chosen for floodlighting? The City of Cockburn is committed to providing public open spaces that are well utilised. Treeby Reserve is currently the only active sporting reserve in the suburb of Treeby. It provides a good location for local sport and recreation activities and was originally set aside for recreational purposes as part of the planning process for Treeby. The park is currently under the management of the developer Stockland; however this is scheduled to come across to the City in 2021. Once the formal management of the reserve is transferred to the City, the City will have the ability to allocate usage to sporting clubs for use.
What type of sporting activities could be undertaken? The lighting layout has been configured to accommodate two rectangular pitches (soccer, rugby) as well as an Australian Rules Football oval. Lighting is to local community competition match standard.
Which sporting clubs will use the reserve? At the Ordinary Council Meeting in June 2019, the Fremantle Roosters Rugby League Club was awarded winter tenancy (April to September) to Treeby Reserve following an open expression of interest process. At this time, no summer sporting clubs have expressed an interest.
Will I still be able to use the park for informal recreation activities (such as walking, jogging, dog walking)? Yes, although the park will be available for hire by organised sporting groups, the park is still available for general use of the community at other times. In any case, informal recreation activities could be still undertaken around the park and the barbecue, picnic shelter and playground can be used by the community at all times.
What does the sports’ floodlighting include? Sports floodlighting will enable greater sporting opportunities at night to be undertaken in a safe manner. The proposed infrastructure includes four 34m towers with LED lights. The overall brightness can be switched from 50 to 100 lux to enable both training and local level competition in line with Australian Standard AS2560.2.3. The floodlight pole locations and design has taken into consideration the control of obtrusive light to nearby amenities and residential properties as per Australian Standard AS4282. In any situation, floodlighting would only be operating in the park between 5.30pm to 9pm (Mon to Thurs) and 10pm (Fri and Sat). Sporting clubs using the lights are required to pay for running costs.
When will works occur? Works are scheduled for March and April 2020 and from 7am – 5pm Mon to Fri. Some Saturday work may be required. Works will occur periodically, however the community will still have access to the reserve and amenities.
After reading through the Frequently Asked Questions, should you require further information staff please contact the undersigned on 9411 3444 or email@example.com.
I know many of us are waiting for an update on the Treeby Primary School as well as our Community Centre. Many of us built our home in this estate because of these facilities. We, the TCA, compiled the latest update for your convinience.
Treeby Community Centre 🏉
Back in March 2019, Cockburn Council conducted a preliminary survey to the Calleya community on the utilisation and visions for our community centre. All the results are compiled, taken into consideration, and it is currently in the floorplan design stage with an estimated date of completion around March 2022* (subject to change).
The oval will be shared with Fremantle Roosters Rugby League Club, they were awarded winter tenancy last June, which they have many junior players around and in Treeby surroundings. Hopefully, this will encourage more children and teenagers to get out of the house and away from screens 😊.
There will be an official announcement on Treeby Community Centre around March 2020 where they will officially publish the draft-designs as well as a Q&A session for all the Calleya residents.
It was announced in December 2019 that there will be 5 new primary schools for 2022 school year and Treeby is on that list 👏. Treeby will see the construction of the new $20.3 million Treeby (Banjup West) Primary School (planning name) which will be built with permanent capacity for 540 students. Aim to finish before the start of 2022 school year. (yes, that means both Treeby Community Centre and Treeby Primary School will finish roughly around the same period , 2022 🎉)
Treeby Primary School (planning name):
Located on Sapphire Drive, Treeby,
Construction begins in late 2020,
Opening in 2022,
Accommodating 540 students in permanent classrooms from kindergarten to Year 6, and

Have you checked out our Calleya Community Garden 🌾?

Also, we have three compost bins. So if you have any veggie and fruit scraps from your daily cooking we would love to have them. If you can donate, please place them in the bin next to the bulletin board 🚮.
