City plan to go out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE City of Su­bi­aco will send the draft Su­bi­aco ac­tiv­ity centre plan out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

Coun­cil­lors de­bated the plan at Tues­day night’s coun­cil meet­ing that de­tails the fu­ture of sub­di­vi­sion, zon­ing and de­vel­op­ment of Su­bi­aco’s town centre.

Cr Julie Mathe­son moved the mo­tion to send it for pub­lic com­ment, but spoke against the of­fi­cer’s rec­om­men­da­tion and said she was con­cerned about the plan.

“It comes with warn­ing signs,” he said. “I am con­cerned about these ac­tiv­ity centre plans in Perth metro ar­eas.”

Cr Scott Ar­buckle spoke for the mo­tion and said the plan was es­sen­tial in get­ting the town plan­ning scheme across the line.

“There’s a risk that if this is de­layed, the lo­cal plan­ning scheme will be de­layed fur­ther,” he said.

Cr Stephanie Stroud said she could not see the risk of ap­prov­ing it, if it was go­ing out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

Cr Mark Burns said the doc­u­ment was out­dated and a num­ber of the maps were in­cor­rect.

“How do you send it out un­til it’s cor­rect?” he asked.

“Oth­er­wise you’re ask­ing peo­ple to com­ment on some­thing that isn’t cor­rect.

“I want this out too, but I want it to be right.”

Cr Mur­ray Rowe said the doc­u­ment was mis­lead­ing and wrong.

“I would like to have this ti­died up,” he said. “I don’t want to put my name to it.”

The mo­tion was car­ried 7-6.
