It said that should help position Yanchep Lagoon Precinct as a vibrant, regional tourist destination and the City was open to all potential development options, provided they complied with planning and environmental requirements.

“Pending expressions of interest and approvals, the site will be available for development in mid-late 2018.

“Although lease terms are negotiable, the rental period would be long term, ranging from 10-21 years.”
