Town has say on penin­sula

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Carlisle Burswood Peninsula -

THE need for care­ful park­ing man­age­ment and sites for a pri­mary school, com­mu­nity uses and ac­tive open space will be high­lighted by the Town of Vic­to­ria Park in its sub­mis­sion to the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion’s draft Bur­swood Penin­sula Dis­trict Struc­ture Plan.

A re­port by Rochelle Lav­ery, the Town’s fu­ture life and built life man­ager, sup­ports the plan and will form the ba­sis of the coun­cil’s sub­mis­sion to the pub­lic com­ment pe­riod if ap­proved at tonight’s monthly meet­ing.

The Town wants to rec­om­mend the WAPC’s fi­nal plan go fur­ther to co-or­di­nate the penin­sula’s move­ment net­work, park­ing, ser­vic­ing in­fra­struc­ture and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure they will be ad­e­quate for its es­ti­mated 20,000 res­i­dents in the next 30 years.

It also wants the plan to ad­dress a com­mit­ment to re­de­vel­op­ing Bur­swood rail­way sta­tion as the most sig­nif­i­cant cat­a­lyst for re­de­vel­op­ment of Bur­swood Sta­tion East and Bur­swood Sta­tion West.

The re­port stresses the need for a pri­mary school on the site be­cause Vic­to­ria Park and Lath­lain pri­mary schools are at ca­pac­ity.

The Town has ju­ris­dic­tion over most of the land cov­ered by the draft plan and owns the 84ha for­mer Bur­swood Dome site on Great East­ern High­way.

The plan pro­poses nine precincts that need de­tailed plan­ning, some al­ready com­plete with con­struc­tion un­der­way: Bel­mont Park Race­course Re­de­vel­op­ment, New Perth Sta­dium, Sta­dium South, Bel­mont Sta­tion South, The Penin­sula, Crown Perth, Bur­swood Sta­tion West, Bur­swood Sta­tion East and The Springs.
