Bat­tle moves to new front

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

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”.

Res­i­dents at­tended a meet­ing in Tuart Trail, Edge­wa­ter, to dis­cuss a pro­posed 14-unit devel­op­ment.
