Battle moves to new front
CONCERNED Edgewater residents will now shift their fight to another 14unit development across 7 and 56 Tuart Trail.
More than 60 residents attended a meeting at the site on August 18 to discuss the two-storey proposal.
Edgewater Community Residents Association secretary Beth Hewitt said the development “pays no heed to the existing streetscape and will dominate the corner on which it is built”.
“The quiet street will see at least a 48 per cent increase in traffic, yet will not receive any footpaths to allow children to safely walk to school,” she said.
At last week’s Joondalup council meeting, she also raised issues for neighbouring residents, with 21 cars to be parked at the rear of the property “all entering and leaving along with the rubbish trucks from the driveway adjacent to number 5”.
Mayor Albert Jacob said the City was not the decision-making authority on the proposal because it was due to go before the Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel.
Planning and community development director Dale Page said the community consultation was being conducted and officers would assess the development “in line with the residential design codes and our local planning policy”.
