WAPC de­ci­sion on cor­ner block

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

THE WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion (WAPC) will now de­cide on a con­tentious plan to sub­di­vide a cor­ner lot at 136 Vic­to­ria Street op­posed by Mos­man Park Coun­cil last month. “We have spent a lot of time de­cid­ing where we can ac­com­mo­date the 800 new dwellings wanted by the WAPC in the Town, but this block is not in one of those precincts, and if we did we’d need a full precinct re­view,” Mayor Ron Nor­ris said. Shenton Park-based pro­po­nent Cot­tage and Engi­neer­ing Ser­vices wants to cre­ate non­con­form­ing lots of 393sq m and 397sq m, which plan­ning rules re­quired should be min­i­mums of 450sq m and 350sq m. Cr Zenda John­son said she sup­ported the smaller blocks be­cause they were an op­por­tu­nity to tackle WAPC in­fill re­quire­ments with a “gen­tle ap­proach”, and not medi­u­mand high-den­sity hous­ing, such as the Taskers de­vel­op­ment on the Town’s border with North Fre­man­tle. It was agreed the pro­posed sub­di­vi­sion was in­con­sis­tent with the cur­rent pat­tern of houses and de­vel­op­ment near the Vic­to­ria Street cor­ner.
