Voice concerns, residents urged
RESIDENTS and stakeholders should voice their concerns about the proposed Seaward Village redevelopment before Lieutenant-General Mark Evans visits in January, says Curtin MHR Julie Bishop.
Lt-Gen Evans was recently appointed by Assistant Defence Minister Darren Chester to undertake a review of the controversial redevelopment proposal.
The review will consider issues such as the relative merit of refurbishment versus redevelopment, security, social impact and any need for future restrictions on the land.
Ms Bishop said the public statements would allow Lt-Gen Evans to “gain a better understanding of the unique security and community considerations” when he visits interested parties next month.
The review will provide a written report to the Government by February 29. Public submissions are open until January 15. Visit www.seawardvillagereview.net.
