THE Shire of Mundaring is seeking feedback on a proposed Satterley residential subdivision for North Stoneville.

Shire President John Daw urged interested community members, groups and businesses to read the documents associated with structure plan 34, drawn up to guide the 1400-lot proposal.

“Community input will form a key part of the decision-making process for Shire of Mundaring councillors,” he said in a Shire statement yesterday.

The council’s decision – expected in March – will be submitted as a recommendation to the WA Planning Commission, the determining authority for structure plans.

Cr Daw said the Shire sent about 300 letters regarding the proposal to residents in surrounding areas.

Also, councillors had attended a meeting organised by residents on December 18 to ensure accurate information was available and to encourage community input.

“I am pleased to say that the community is responding to the opportunity to provide feedback to council,” Cr Daw said.

Residents sporting Save Perth Hills T-shirts were reported on Channel 7 tonight calling for “sensible sustainable development” instead of the “high density” proposal expected to house 4000 residents.

Documents pertaining to the structure plan can be found on the Shire of Mundaring’s website.

Comments can be lodged online, by post or email. Email shire@mundaring.wa.gov.au or post to Shire of Mundaring,  Attention Planning Services, 7000 Great Eastern Highway, Mundaring 6073.

The matter is expected to be presented to the council at its March meeting.
