REVISED plans for an apartment complex in Heathridge are out for public comment.

In June, the Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel refused an application for 14 units across 50 and 52 Littorina Avenue.

The panel said the proposal did not meet City or State requirements, particularly in the areas of visitor car parking, building height and boundary setbacks.

The applicant appealed the decision to the State Administrative Tribunal and through this process has submitted a revised proposal for 12 units.

However, they are still seeking discretion including increased crossover width, building height and front fencing, reduced upper floor setbacks, balcony areas and landscaping, removal of mature trees and a shortfall of bicycle parking bays.

The City of Joondalup is currently assessing the application and is seeking public feedback.

Submissions can be made until October 11 via info@joondalup.wa.gov.au or posted to PO Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

A decision on the application is required to be made by the State Administrative Tribunal, with the development assessment panel invited to review its initial decision to refuse the application.

The City has been advised the panel will be required to consider the matter by October 25.
