Perth residents raised safety concerns about seven tree concrete planters that popped up on their street on Thursday, but the mayor says they meet safety requirements.
The Northern Midlands Council is following through with its plans to sell nine blocks of land on Norfolk Street, which it paid more than $900,000 to acquire.
It has advertised the sale through a classified advertisement in The Examiner and on the council's Facebook page, despite a petition calling for works to be stopped on heritage grounds.

It includes streetscape changes, and residents were not pleased to find the concrete planters took up part of a lane. Concerns raised by residents on the community's Facebook page included the danger to traffic, as it was two-way street, and visibility for residents reversing out of their driveways.
Mayor Mary Knowles said each one took up no more room than a parked car and met safety requirements.
She said due to community concerns one had been removed on Friday but the council did not need to take it away.
"They're not taking up extra room," she said.
"It's not a main road, it's a local road. It's part of our beautification works."
A video posted to Facebook on Friday showed a school bus driving on the wrong side of the road to get through before veering back onto the correct side at the corner of Frederick St.
The council removed one of the planter boxes, nearest to Frederick St, but do not plan to remove more.
