Aldi plans for War­wick

Wanneroo Weekender - - Front Page - Tyler Brown

SU­PER­MAR­KET gi­ant Aldi is head­ing to the War­wick Grove Shop­ping Cen­tre.

The Metro North West Joint Devel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel last week con­di­tion­ally ap­proved an in­ter­nal re­con­fig­u­ra­tion and ad­di­tion of a su­per­mar­ket at the Beach Road cen­tre.

The devel­op­ment works, cost­ing about $2.1 mil­lion, will in­clude the amal­ga­ma­tion of ten­an­cies to use va­cant floor space, load­ing docks, clear­ance of bush­land on the north­ern em­bank­ment to al­low for de­liv­ery trucks and new land­scap­ing.

About 7150 sq m of bush­land in­clud­ing six trees will be cleared to give an ad­di­tional 1944sq m of bi­tu­men.

The new land­scap­ing will in­clude low-level ground cover be­cause the “area has min­i­mal pub­lic sur­veil­lance and has oc­ca­sion­ally been sub­ject to anti-so­cial be­hav­iour” and an ad­di­tional eight trees to be planted to the north of the re­graded em­bank­ment area.

At the June 11 meet­ing, pre­sid­ing mem­ber Karen Hyde moved an amend­ment to al­low de­tailed land­scap­ing plans to be sub­mit­ted to and ap­proved by the City of Joon­dalup be­fore Aldi moves in rather than be­fore devel­op­ment starts, as orig­i­nally rec­om­mended.

She said this would al­low the ap­pli­cant to “carry out in­ter­nal ser­vic­ing im­me­di­ately and main­tain the need to en­sure ap­pro­pri­ate bush­land clear­ance prior to the ap­proval of the land­scape plans”.

The amend­ment was unan­i­mously ap­proved.
