Main con­cern is loss of pri­vacy, says res­i­dent

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

AS­COT Wa­ters res­i­dent War­ren Camp­bell said he was con­cerned about pri­vacy, with his front yard vis­i­ble to ev­ery level of the build­ing from the third floor up.

“That is what both­ers me the most,” he said.

“A 15-storey devel­op­ment at the end of my street is go­ing to have a ma­te­rial im­pact on our lives.

“Does a 15-storey build­ing be­long in a res­i­den­tial estate where by law our homes are not al­lowed to be any higher than two storeys?”

Mr Camp­bell said he was also con­cerned about the lack of com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the Joint Devel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel.

“One of the great­est fears I have is that we are not go­ing to be rep­re­sented at the JDAP level,” he said.

Con­cerns raised by res­i­dents will also be in­cluded in a Re­spon­si­ble Author­ity Report that will be sub­mit­ted by City of Bel­mont staff to the JDAP by Oc­to­ber 14.

The dead­line for the RAR has been ex­tended from Septem­ber 9 to give the Department of Wa­ter time to com­ment.

The prop­erty is par­tially within the Swan and Can­ning Rivers Devel­op­ment Con­trol Area.

City of Bel­mont act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Neville Deague en­cour­aged res­i­dents to voice their con­cerns di­rectly to the JDAP.

“The JDAP will al­ready have com­ments from the sub­mis­sions re­ceived by the City. How­ever, be­ing there per­son­ally may as­sist in mak­ing your points,” he said.
