PLANS for a 52-unit, $10.9 million development in Alkimos are on the agenda for a North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel meeting on Wednesday.

A City of Wanneroo report on the August 23 agenda recommends the panel approve the proposal for 40 Portside Promenade, with nine standard conditions.

Tuscom Subdivision Consultants lodged the application for the 2715sq m lot on behalf of owner Alkimos Views.

The plans include 42 two-bedroom units, eight three-bedroom units and two single bedroom units, plus communal areas and 89 parking bays.

The City received three submissions during public consultation, two of which objected to the development.

One said there was insufficient demand for another 52 dwellings in the area and the five-storey building would be “an eyesore”.

The other said it was incompatible with existing one and two-storey buildings and would block their ocean views.

The report said while the existing heights were low, the structure plan established the future desired built form as medium to high density developments within 200m of the future activity centre so it would be compatible.

The third submission was generally supportive but asked whether there would be sufficient parking. The City’s report said the shortfall of one visitor bay was “negligible”.

The panel will meet at the Wanneroo Civic Centre from 3pm on August 23.
