New es­tate struc­ture plan fin­ished

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

PUB­LIC con­sul­ta­tion for the Rose­hill Wa­ters struc­ture plan is fin­ished and if the ap­provals process is smooth, the South Guild­ford de­vel­op­ment could be un­der con­struc­tion by July.

The struc­ture plan shows the north-west edge of the de­vel­op­ment – the part clos­est the air­port’s flight path – will be re­served for pub­lic open space and retail.

The South Guild­ford de­vel­op­ment at the for­mer Rose­hill Golf Course site will com­prise 616 homes, most of which will be sin­gle storey.

Ex­ist­ing home­own­ers abut­ting the for­mer golf course, like those on Januk Turn, will be par­tially com­pen­sated for their loss of view with 10m high veg­e­ta­tion screen­ing.

The struc­ture plan also pro­poses to pro­vide im­proved pedes­trian links to the cur­rently un­der­utilised He­lena River fore­shore.

Noahs Rose­hill Wa­ters gen­eral man­ager San­dra Klarich said she re­ceived a lot of pos­i­tive feed­back at com­mu­nity in­for­ma­tion ses­sions last week.

She said con­struc­tion was on track to start in July for ground­works and the first set­tle­ments would likely be avail­able in March next year.

Perth Air­port has re­it­er­ated con­cerns over the de­vel­op­ment fol­low­ing the re­lease of the sub­di­vi­sion’s struc­ture plan for pub­lic com­ment.

The air­port has voiced strong ob­jec­tion to the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment.
