Res­i­dents’ in­put sought

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS and landown­ers in the Swan Val­ley will be in­vited to pro­vide in­put on a State Gov­ern­ment review of the Swan Val­ley plan­ning frame­work, which in­cor­po­rates the Swan Val­ley Pro­tec­tion Bill.

The review will al­low the Swan Val­ley com­mu­nity to con­trib­ute to the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of the re­gion and their view on a num­ber of is­sues, in­clud­ing tourism ini­tia­tives, farm­ing, sub­di­vi­sion and what roles a salu­ta­tory board for the re­gion would have.

Plan­ning Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti said she was pleased to ap­point for­mer min­is­ter John Ko­belke to con­duct the review.

“I have asked Mr Ko­belke to ex­am­ine the pro­vi­sions in the draft Swan Val­ley De­vel­op­ment Plan re­lat­ing to sub­di­vi­sion agri­cul­ture and tourism,” she said.

“I am also keen to en­sure a strong ad­vo­cate for the Swan Val­ley through a statu­tory board or com­mit­tee. This review and con­sul­ta­tion pro­cess will en­sure the peo­ple who call the Swan Val­ley home have a real say about the fu­ture of this highly val­ued re­gion.”
