Coun­cil­lor’s Col­umn – So­phie Dwyer

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

Res­i­dents of Dun­craig and the wider com­mu­nity have another month to have their say on a pro­posal to re­duce the res­i­den­tial den­sity code in part of one of the City’s Hous­ing Op­por­tu­nity Ar­eas. The res­i­den­tial den­sity code of R20/40 and R20/60 is cur­rently ap­plied to house­holds within Hous­ing Op­por­tu­nity Area 1 (HO1), as part of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the City’s Lo­cal Hous­ing Strat­egy. This por­tion of HO1 is bounded by the Mitchell Free­way to the east, War­wick Road to the north, Beach Road to the south and Se­quoia Road, Telopia Drive, Au­tumn Court, Buck­thorn Way and Green­law Street to the west. Pro­posed amend­ments to the City’s Plan­ning Scheme seek to re­duce the res­i­den­tial den­sity code of ev­ery prop­erty in HO1, west of the Mitchell Free­way in Dun­craig, ex­clud­ing Carine Glades Shop­ping Cen­tre, from R20/40 and R 20/60 to R20/30. The City will con­sider all sub­mis­sions and pre­pare a re­port for Coun­cil on the out­comes of com­mu­nity en­gage­ment. Coun­cil must then re­solve to ei­ther sup­port the amend­ments with or with­out mod­i­fi­ca­tion, or not sup­port the amend­ments. Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion is then for­warded to the Western Aus­tralian Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and the Min­is­ter for Plan­ning for fi­nal de­ter­mi­na­tion.
