Kilns plan up for com­ment

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A DRAFT lo­cal devel­op­ment plan for the As­cot Kilns area will be pre­sented to the pub­lic in June for feed­back.

The draft plan will con­sider ideas from a com­mu­nity work­shop ear­lier this year, where par­tic­i­pants were asked to ex­plore devel­op­ment sce­nar­ios for the site.

The his­tory of the As­cot Kilns dates back to 1903 when it opened as Pit­man, Piercy and Co – the first pur­pose-built pot­tery works in WA.

The State Gov­ern­ment al­lo­cated $500,000 in the 2015-16 bud­get for a plan­ning re­view of the site, which has been al­lowed to de­te­ri­o­rate since its clo­sure in 1982.
