The North West Metropolitan Development Assessment Panel added a condition for the one-off payment to approval for a McDonald’s drive-thru on the corner of Peony Boulevard and Marmion Avenue.

‘Payment of a one-off monetary contribution of $5000 shall be made to the City of Wanneroo prior to occupation of the development as a contribution towards the future cost of a signalised intersection at Marmion Avenue/Peony Boulevard,’ the condition said.

The panel met on December 18 to reconsider the application at the State Administrative Tribunal’s request.

It also ruled that the restaurant could have a 7m tall pylon sign for five years, after which it had to be dropped to 6m.
