A TWO-STOREY mul­ti­ple dwelling devel­op­ment in Wanneroo is be­ing rec­om­mended for ap­proval by coun­cil­lors.

The Win­ship Av­enue prop­erty owner has ap­plied to the City of Wanneroo to build 10 two-bed­room units on the 1257sq m site, which is zoned R20/R40.

The City’s re­port to be pre­sented at tonight’s coun­cil meet­ing said three ob­jec­tions to the pro­posal were re­ceived, which raised con­cerns about in­creased traf­fic, park­ing, space for bin col­lec­tion and bound­ary walls. It said the devel­op­ment was com­pli­ant with rel­e­vant poli­cies ex­cept in re­gards to the R-codes bound­ary wall re­quire­ment, which per­mits one side bound­ary while the plan is for two, but this was sup­ported as it met de­sign prin­ci­ples. Traf­fic was ex­pected to in­crease by 76 trips per day to 408, which was un­der the road ca­pac­ity of 3000, and the ap­pli­cant pro­vided a waste man­age­ment plan to en­sure bin col­lec­tion would not neg­a­tively af­fect sur­round­ing homes.

At last Tues­day’s brief­ing ses­sion, act­ing plan­ning and sus­tain­abil­ity di­rec­tor Pas Bra­cone ac­knowl­edged the devel­op­ment was dif­fer­ent to ex­ist­ing res­i­dences in the area but it was con­sis­tent with the City’s plan­ning scheme amend­ment to in­crease res­i­den­tial den­sity.

“The pro­posal will con­trib­ute to a pro­vi­sion of a range and va­ri­ety of hous­ing, close to an ac­tiv­ity cen­tre,” he said.
