Burns Beach/Min­darie shared path

Con­struc­tion of the Burns Beach to Min­darie dual-use path is an­tic­i­pated to com­mence mid-2019 and is sched­uled to take about six months to com­plete. A fi­nal re­view of the de­sign is cur­rently un­der­way. It is vi­tal that the align­ment and de­sign of the path min­imises any im­pact on the bio­di­ver­sity val­ues found within the project area. It is ex­cit­ing to see the project take shape af­ter many years of ad­vo­cat­ing for this project from res­i­dents of both the Cities of Joon­dalup and Wan­neroo. The State Gov­ern­ment, through the Western Aus­tralian Plan­ning Com­mis­sion, is con­tribut­ing $2mil­lion to this much-an­tic­i­pated project with the rest of the costs to be shared be­tween the two Cities. The dual-use path will link the Peet De­vel­op­ment in Burns Beach with the Catalina de­vel­op­ment in Min­darie. Peet and Ta­mala Park Re­gional Coun­cil are re­spon­si­ble for the sec­tions of path within Burns Beach and Catalina es­tates re­spec­tively.

City’s BEN sig­nage to im­prove emer­gency re­sponse times

The City will in­stall 65 Beach Emer­gency Num­bers (BEN) signs at beach ac­cess points along its coast­line this sum­mer to help im­prove emer­gency re­sponse times. All BEN sig­nage in­cludes clear lo­ca­tion data so that a caller can sim­ply quote the beach sign num­ber to an emer­gency op­er­a­tor if ur­gent as­sis­tance is re­quired. Lo­ca­tions will in­clude some of the City’s most pop­u­lar coastal fore­shore lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Burns Beach, Iluka and Ocean Reef (in­clud­ing Ocean Reef Boat Har­bour). The City re­ceived grant fund­ing from the De­part­ment of Pri­mary In­dus­tries and Re­gional De­vel­op­ment to in­stall the signs.

New Lo­cal Plan­ning Scheme

The City’s new Lo­cal Plan­ning Scheme, LPS3, be­came op­er­a­tional last month. LPS3, which su­per­sedes District Plan­ning Scheme No. 2, clas­si­fies land into zones and re­serves and out­lines how land within those zones may be used and de­vel­oped. It also spec­i­fies the res­i­den­tial den­sity code that ap­plies to res­i­den­tial prop­erty, which pre­scribes how many dwellings can be de­vel­oped. For more in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing fre­quently asked ques­tions see joon­dalup.wa.gov.au City of Joon­dalup res­i­dent and ratepayer pre-sale avail­able now. Tick­ets can be pur­chased on­line via
