East Wan­neroo given re­zon­ing ap­proval

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

PLAN­NING Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti has ap­proved a Metropoli­tan Re­gion Scheme amend­ment to re­zone 2206ha in east Wan­neroo from ‘ru­ral’ to ‘ur­ban de­ferred’.

The amend­ment, which will be sub­ject to Par­lia­men­tary pro­cesses, is touted to give landown­ers more cer­tainty about fu­ture de­vel­op­ment in the City of Wan­neroo’s eastern suburbs.

The re­zon­ing would al­low for fu­ture res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment, schools, com­mer­cial cen­tres, pub­lic open space and con­ser­va­tion ar­eas through the pro­posed east Wan­neroo district struc­ture plan.

The WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion last month re­leased the out­come of sub­mis­sions into the amend­ment, which was first ad­ver­tised two years ago.

“This amend­ment process started in 2016 and will bring greater cer­tainty for many landown­ers,” Ms Saf­fi­oti said.

The City has in­vited pub­lic sub­mis­sions on the draft amended lo­cal plan­ning pol­icy un­til June 26.
