Res­i­dents can air con­cerns at fo­rum

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

BEL­MONT MLA Glenys God­frey will host a com­mu­nity fo­rum on Thurs­day to hear res­i­dents’ con­cerns about the new For­rest­field-Air­port Link and the De­vel­op­ment Area 6 (DA6) plans.

The City of Bel­mont coun­cil en­dorsed the DA6 plan to go out for pub­lic ad­ver­tis­ing at its Oc­to­ber coun­cil meet­ing.

It is an area of 174ha around Perth Air­port and Red­cliffe which had been iden­ti­fied as a suit­able lo­ca­tion for re­de­vel­op­ment.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Dean Nalder, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Main Roads, the Pub­lic Trans­port Author­ity and the City of Bel­mont, will an­swer ques­tions .

Mrs God­frey said the link would de­liver sev­eral ben­e­fits, but there were le­git­i­mate con­cerns in the com­mu­nity about the roads lay­out.

“It is im­por­tant to me that the key de­ci­sion-makers in this project hear and ad­dress the con­cerns,” she said.

“This is why I have ar­ranged for all rel­e­vant agen­cies to be to­gether in the same room, so there is no ‘he said, she said’.

“I hope that by hav­ing all de­ci­sion makers in one room we are able to reach a so­lu­tion that ben­e­fits the com­mu­nity as a whole.”
