A PRIVATE development partner is now being sought following the transfer of management orders relating to the land for the Bentley 360 infill project on June 27.

Department of Communities assistant director general of commercial operations Greg Cash said the revocation of the management orders by the City of Canning was a significant milestone for the Bentley 360 project.

“Communities’ acquisition of the Crown Reserves has increased its ownership of the Bentley 360 project site to 82 per cent and supports Communities’ and its future development partner in delivering a leading-edge and sustainable neighbourhood with people at the heart,” he said.

The agreement saw the City of Canning get $5.591 million from the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage as compensation for the community facilities the city has provided on the land.

The City will also get $4 million from the Department of Communities over the next three years to go towards the redevelopment of existing parks within Bentley.

The City will now design and construct upgrades to the existing parks around Bentley, to complement the Department of Communities’ future temporary parklands at the northern end of the Bentley 360 site which is due to open early next year.

Bentley 360 will deliver one of Perth’s most significant medium-to-high density urban infill developments following the demolition of Brownlie Towers.
