Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
