Plan revisions to go before development panel
THE Metro North-West Development Assessment Panel will reconsider deferred applications for a mixed use development in Butler and a nursing home in Alkimos tomorrow.
The $14.5 million Butler Boulevard development was originally presented in July, when the panel referred it back to get more information on external features and landscaping.
City of Wanneroo staff have recommended the panel approve the revised plans for 67 one and two-bedroom units and eight commercial tenancies.
The panel had also referred back plans for a $25 million aged care facility on Magellan Road in Alkimos on September 1 to clarify the bushfire management plan.
To address the Department of Fire and Emergency Services’ concerns about having only one access route for the vulnerable land use, the applicant provided a concept plan with two temporary access tracks through parks from Leeway Loop and Gangway Turn to Marmion Avenue.
The City’s report recommends it approve the plans for the two-storey development, which will have 134 beds and communal facilities.
The September 27 agenda also includes a recommendation to approve an amendment to plans for the Woolworths shopping centre in Butler to put more shade sails in one of the car parks.
