ON THE COAST
COMMUNITY consultation has started on the future of the Quinns Rocks Caravan Park site, which closed to holidaymakers in 2012.
The City of Wanneroo is considering redevelopment opportunities for the Mindarie site and seeking community feedback.
The City’s economic development strategy, advertised for public comment in 2016, identified the site as an ideal location for tourism activities. Subsequently, the City began a study to examine the feasibility of redeveloping the site into a modern tourist park to offer accommodation and public amenities.
The next phase of the study involves identifying technical and financial considerations, as well as market conditions and overall demand for the site’s redevelopment.
Mayor Tracey Roberts said it was important that council fully understood what residents valued most about the site and how they would like to see it developed in the future.
The City held a workshop with environmental groups yesterday and community site walks will be held on Saturday, October 20, from 9am and 10am.
It is also planning a workshop for local residents and businesses on November 1 and a community panel workshop at the Quinns Mindarie Community Centre from 6pm to 8pm on November 15.
The City aims to use the information gathered by the end of 2018 to define development options, then seek expressions of interest for development and ongoing management of the site.
The public comment period will end November 16.
