RES­I­DENTS have banded to­gether to raise con­cerns about a pro­posal for a 16mhigh de­vel­op­ment on Cly­des­dale Street in Como.

The Yaran Prop­erty Group has submitted the pro­posed apart­ment com­plex to the City of South Perth, which is ex­pected to con­sid­ered by the Metro Cen­tral Joint De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel (JDAP) in Septem­ber.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion submitted it as a four-storey 21-dwelling prop­erty with 24 carpark bays, 20 of which would be in a car stack­ing sys­tem, al­though the City is re­gard­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion as be­ing five­storeys.

Yaran Prop­erty Group had pro­pos­als on Kishorn Road and Macrae Road in Ap­ple­cross ap­proved by the Metro Cen­tral JDAP ear­lier this year.

Con­cerns about the size of the Cly­des­dale Street prop­erty, the num­ber of peo­ple liv­ing there and the traf­fic it would cre­ate are among the con­cerns raised. Philp Av­enue res­i­dent Clive Rich­mond said his main is­sue was the den­sity be­ing pro­posed.

“When you con­sider that most of the dwellings have two or more cars, then that could more than 50 cars,” he said.

“They will have to park on the street or near Neill Mc­Dougall Park.

“An­other is­sue is waste man­age­ment; how are they go­ing to fit 21 bins out the front of the prop­erty?

“I’ve spo­ken to res­i­dents along Cly­des­dale Street and Edge­combe Street and peo­ple are not happy about it.”

Yaran Prop­erty Group projects Ai­dan Gorjy spokesman said the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment was “fully com­pli­ant” and should be ap­proved.

City of South Perth chief ex­ec­u­tive Ge­off Glass said the word­ing of the ap­pli­cant’s pro­posal re­lated to the tech­ni­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Can­ning Bridge Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Plan that did not con­sider a “mez­za­nine” as a storey. The ap­pli­ca­tion was still be­ing as­sessed by City of­fi­cers against the pro­vi­sions of the Can­ning Bridge Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Plan.

Res­i­dents gather at the site of the pro­posed high rise de­vel­op­ment (pic­ture not to scale).
