Consultation scheduled to start soon
CONSULTANCY work to help the City of Joondalup with its work into ongoing density and infill development issues has started.
In giving an update to concerned Edgewater residents, planning and community development director Dale Page said the community could expect to be contacted “directly by the consultants” about midSeptember.
She said this would include all information about “how, where and when residents can provide input in various ways”.
“There are three different opportunities leading up to development of the strategy where people will be able to have input,” she said.
“The contract period is for 23 to 24 weeks, so we should have a solution to the issue we are facing by early next year.”
Ms Page said since Taylor Burrell Barnett was appointed last month, they had held “inception meetings” and were “busy doing a review of the past documents including all the consultation”.
“They have just finalised preparation of a comprehensive draft engagement and consultation strategy, which needs reviewing,” she said.
“And they are already in the process of putting together some of the consultation material. “
