AIree­ment on ac­cess road

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch - By DENISE S. CAHILL

THE Town of Clare­mont has reached a com­pro­mise with Mir­vac on the ac­cess road to 142 apart­ments in the North East Precinct.

Coun­cil­lors were con­cerned that sole ac­cess from Gray­lands Road would cause con­ges­tion.

How­ever, last Tues­day the coun­cil ac­cepted a mi­nor amend­ment to the devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion mov­ing the en­try gates fur­ther off Gray­lands Road be­yond the vis­i­tor park­ing.

Deputy Mayor Bruce Haynes said the change meant vis­i­tors would not have to go through the gates and res­i­dents would drive past vis­i­tor park­ing to the gates, elim­i­nat­ing con­ges­tion on Gray­lands Road.

Cr Haynes said he was not “happy” with the so­lu­tion but it was an “im­prove­ment”.

A Mir­vac spokesman said the project team had worked closely with coun­cil and were pleased the devel­op­ment was pro­gress­ing.

In Jan­uary, coun­cil asked the de­vel­oper to con­sider side roads for ac­cess to the 142 dwellings at Lot 504 as well as the neigh­bour­ing Lot 505.

The Metro West Joint Devel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel later ap­proved devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tions for the sites but agreed Mir­vac should pro­vide ev­i­dence that drive­way de­signs would not cause queu­ing on Gray­lands Road.
