Public have say on plan for marina
The public have had their say over the potential Mangles Bay Marina project, with submissions to the WA Planning Commission’s hearings committee concluding last week.
Developers Cedar Woods and LandCorp are proposing the construction of a marina and residential housing facility at Mangles Bay, which the proponents claim would breathe life into Rockingham’s tourism industry.
However, the project has met substantial opposition, as lobbyists allege that the public has not been fully briefed on the potential environmen- tal impacts of the marina.
The Hands Off Point Peron group wrapped up the public consultation process by presenting a 600-word submission to the hearings committee last Wednesday.
A Department of Planning spokesman said the information would now be assessed.
“The hearings regarding the Mangles Bay Marina proposal have been completed,” he said.
“The hearings committee will now consider the submissions before making a recommendation to the WA Planning Commission.
“It is not known at this stage how long this process will take.”
