MAYLANDS residents will have another chance to enter the Maylands Brickworks site and express their views on its future use, after about 100 residents attended the first information session on Saturday.

The City-owned and managed brickworks was established in 1927 and included one of only a handful of remaining Hoffman kilns in Australia.

It has been vacant since 1984.

City of Bayswater councillors and Maylands Historical and Peninsula Association president Deborah Chinnery also took part in the session, which involved a tour of the site and information on four draft concepts.

The concepts include using the Brickworks for mixed residential, plus a new residential area alongside the east side, or residential on the southern carpark site, a golf course clubhouse and using the Brickworks for recreation, with residential on the southern carpark or without new residential.

The Heritage Directorate of the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage will hold its second session on February 26 from 5pm to 7pm.

Residents have until March 16 to provide comment on the concepts.
