Apart­ments to bring ‘choice and di­ver­sity’ to Green­wood

Wanneroo Times - - News - Tyler Brown

A THREE-storey apart­ment com­plex has been ap­proved as part of the re­de­vel­op­ment of the for­mer East Green­wood Pri­mary School site.

The project will in­clude 10 one-bed­room and six two-bed­room dwellings at 63 Mul­li­gan Drive – owned by the Depart­ment of Hous­ing – with ve­hi­cle ac­cess from a rear laneway.

The devel­op­ment, which is part of the first of two stages, aims to bring “hous­ing choice and di­ver­sity into the lo­cal area”.

It will be lo­cated cen­trally within the re­de­vel­op­ment area, next to pro­posed pub­lic open space to the west and pro­posed res­i­den­tial lots to the north and south.

Devel­op­ment ap­provals have been is­sued for the con­struc­tion of sin­gle and two-storey dwellings on these pro­posed lots.

The re­port from last Tues­day’s coun­cil meet­ing said the devel­op­ment com­plied with the requirements of the City’s plan­ning poli­cies, ex­cept for “vis­i­tor park­ing, plot ra­tio and dwelling di­ver­sity”. The devel­op­ment is re­quired to in­clude 16 res­i­den­tial car bays and four vis­i­tor bays, but in­stead only has 18 bays on­site.

How­ever, the doc­u­ment said vis­i­tor park­ing was pro­posed to be ac­com­mo­dated via the 15 on-street park­ing bays to the west of the devel­op­ment.

“It is con­sid­ered that the over­all de­sign of the devel­op­ment, along with the ar­eas of dis­cre­tion sought, are ap­pro­pri­ate within the con­text of the East Green­wood re­de­vel­op­ment site,” the doc­u­ment said.
