PLANS by Satterley to develop 1410 homes in Stoneville are now out for public comment.

Proponents of the 555ha North Stoneville townsite have lodged a structure plan with the Shire of Mundaring for assessment.

The subject properties on Stoneville Road and Roland Road in Parkerville are already zoned for residential development and forms part of the Shire’s wider growth strategy.

The townsite includes plans for a government primary school, a private Anglican high school and 45ha of public open space.

A Satterley spokeswoman said the Shire would make a recommendation to the WA Planning Commission as to whether the structure plan should be approved, however, the final decision rested with the WAPC.

“The aim for the development of North Stoneville is to create a contemporary Hills community that feels quintessentially local, a place that is special where residents can live, work and play within walkable and well-connected villages close to nature and with a strong sense of community,” she said.

“Blending seamlessly with the local landscape, North Stoneville will bring new homes, facilities and services to make the Hills lifestyle a reality for approximately 3900 residents.

“Investment into modern services and new technologies will deliver a sustainable community and fresh lifestyle alternatives.”

Satterley is jointly developing the new community with the landowner.

The land has been used for sheep farming for many years and consists of open paddocks, with areas of scrub, natural creek lines and remnant vegetation.

Construction is expected to start in 2020/21.

Submissions are due by January 10, 2019.
