Thank you all for attending our Aussie Day breakfast and connecting with your fellow neighbours. We have a large group of seniors from Aspire coming here early to join us, and we even enticed in a few joggers with free bacon and egg breakfasts (vegetarian options were available too!) 😂
Great to see families bring out their children and participate in many lawn games and mingling with other members. This is what a community event is about!
In total, we cooked 115 eggs, 100 sausages, 6kgs of bacon, 14 loaves of bread, 2 huge watermelons! A shoutout to our community garden crew for donating many fresh produces from the garden for our vegetarian friends and more.
Approximately 120-130 people turned up for the event Well done!
A big thanks to all the TCA volunteers to make this happen and see you on the next one! 😊
Many of you may have read or heard about the proposed Bus Route 523 in Calleya 🚏.
A huge thanks to Yaz Mubarakai MLA for actively pushing for a bus route service in Calleya Estate. A total of 214 signatures and working with the Minister for Transport, the Hon Rita Saffioti, they are happy to announce on Nov 9th 2020 that a bus Route 523 will start its community consultation on 16th November. This is one step closer to getting the service 🙌🎉
Below is the proposed route or for a better look you can download the PDF here.
Route 523 🚌 is proposed to operate seven days a week at the following times:
Every 15 minutes during weekday peak periods
Every 60 minutes during off-peak weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Services would be timed to formally connect with trains at Cockburn Central Station.
WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!
This is where we can make some changes. Transperth is seeking public opinions on Route 523!
If you have any comments or suggestions, please let them know before 4th December 2020
As many of you have already received information in your letterbox regarding the next major phase to the Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge Project. Check the Mainroad website for more project details.
This post will highlight the construction that will impact residents in Calleya Estate and surrounding Treeby. Mainly the Ghostgum Ave entrance to Armadale Road.
This 3-staged construction will commence in early September 2020 and aims to mid-2021. A major diversion is required to assist the widening of Armadale Road. As a result, the intersection will be converted to left-turn access only during the construction phase.
Ghostgum Avenue traffic intending to travel westbound on Armadale Road will be required to turn left at Armadale Road and follow the detour to the Liddelow Road roundabout then turn back onto Armadale Road, adding an extra 2 km, or approximately four minutes to travel times.
Armadale Road westbound traffic intending to travel northbound on Ghostgum Avenue will be required to continue travelling west on Armadale Road to the temporary roundabout at Tapper Road and Verde Drive (in operation from mid-August), then turn back onto Armadale Road. This will add an extra 1.5 km, or approximately three minutes to travel times.
Right turning movements between Armadale Road and Ghostgum Avenue will be prohibited, as they would require road users to cross an active construction site and oncoming traffic, without protection from traffic signals. This would create a potentially hazardous situation for road users and construction workers in the area. This duration of the right turn closure is necessary for the significant works to be safely undertaken in a heavily constrained area with live power, gas and water services.
Signed detours will be in place throughout each stage of the works. A detour map can be found below. To minimise disturbance to residents, we aim to keep construction-related noise to a minimum and will actively monitor these impacts throughout.
Upon completion, an additional lane will be added to the Armadale Road and Ghostgum Avenue intersection in each direction to improve capacity and support ongoing residential development in Treeby.
Let's talk about a popular issue here in Calleya estate and that is the mobile coverage 📶 from all the telecom providers.
You may have come across many Facebook posts on our Calleya Estate, Treeby community group or on our TCA Facebook page highlighting the grievances of having low to no phone signals in this estate.
This issue existed since the first development of Calleya; and as population density increases the signals deteriorate drastically. 😟 We, the TCA, had been raising this issue with the Cockburn council and the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) yearly in hope that a solution can be implemented.
In the last Wednesday general meeting, on 12th August 2020 at Mooba Cafe, we had the pleasure of havingMr. Yaz Mubarakaijoining us and sharing some key developments and community pain-points he is addressing in 2020. One specific highlight is that he proactively is taking action to get this Mobile Coverage issue resolved. He acknowledged that Treeby and our surrounding community are growing at a record pace and a good telecommunication infrastructure needs to be in place for all the residents.
In order to do that, he is collecting feedbacks and experiences from the residents in these communities. The more he can collect, the strong the case he can build to get a tower erected or a small-cell placed in our surrounding area.
So please, let's help to make Calleya mobile coverage possible by putting your feedback in the survey link below:
It is that time of the year again where we would like to say thank you for your continuous support for Treeby Community Association.

Together we represent a significant voice and as a group, we make a positive difference. 🤝

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.
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! 😍
