THE City of Joondalup is seeking feedback on revised plans for a 14-unit proposal in Edgewater.

On September 11, the Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel deferred its decision on the $2 million development for 7 and 56 Tuart Trail to address design concerns.

These included the design having regard for the “intended future character of the area”, more passive and active surveillance of the carpark and pedestrian areas and the dimensions of the bays and vehicle access, how the verge will accommodate street trees and parking and to redesign the communal outdoor area to improve amenity.

The applicant was required to submit amended plans and additional information to the City by October 2.

Minor modifications made include face brick panels along the front facade of the development, replacing the screening on the upper floor terrace of units 8 to 10 with 45-degree louvers and lowering the screening in front of the entries from 1.6m to 1m, and adding windows in unit 10 and removing a solid wall in front of the unit to provide passive surveillance and a great outlook of the communal open space.

The verge car parking bays have also been increased from 2.1m to 2.3m and additional landscaping has been provided next to the bin store with a roof added to reduce its impact on the communal open space.

The City is required to consider the amended plans and information and submit a revised report to the development assessment panel by October 30.

Members of the community can provide feedback until October 15.

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