There is a proposal to rezone Yanchep’s former wastewater treatment plant for urban development.

A FORMER wastewater treatment plant site in Yanchep will be rezoned for urban development following a Wanneroo City Council decision.

The Water Corporation decommissioned the plant on the 2473.5sqm Capilano Avenue site in 2015.

Councillors unanimously supported a recommendation to approve the change in use from public use to urban development at their July meeting.

According to the report to the council, the site was not needed for reserves, such as parks and for recreation, as there was sufficient public open space in the Yanchep city structure plan.
