Build­ing time ex­tended

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

DE­VEL­OP­ERS will have three years rather than the usual two to start con­struc­tion of an $11 mil­lion Alki­mos apart­ment block.

The Metro North-West De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel ap­proved Tus­com Sub­di­vi­sion Con­sul­tants’ ap­pli­ca­tion on be­half of landowner Alki­mos Views to build the 52-unit de­vel­op­ment at 40 Port­side Prom­e­nade in Au­gust.

The ap­pli­cant sought an ex­ten­sion to the two-year ap­proval time­frame in the City of Wan­neroo’s rec­om­men­da­tion,

“The de­vel­op­ment has been de­signed to be con­structed in two stage,” Hide Shigeyoshi said.

“The two-year ap­proval does cut times quite short – four years would be great or any­thing more than two.”

Panel mem­ber and Wan­neroo coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Driver moved the rec­om­men­da­tion, say­ing it was a good re­sult for the area.

Cr Frank Cvi­tan said “aes­thet­i­cally it looks great” and would be a “good de­vel­op­ment”.

Pre­sid­ing mem­ber Karen Hyde suc­cess­fully moved an amend­ment to give the de­vel­op­ers a three-year ap­proval, with 10 con­di­tions re­lat­ing to land­scap­ing, waste man­age­ment, park­ing and con­struc­tion.

Dis­cus­sion dur­ing the meet­ing also cov­ered ven­ti­la­tion, land­scap­ing and pri­vacy screen­ing be­tween units and com­mu­nal places.

The five panel mem­bers unan­i­mously agreed to sup­port the amended rec­om­men­da­tion to ap­prove de­vel­op­ment on the 2715sq m lot in Peet’s Shore­haven es­tate.
