THE public submission period for a three-story, 54-unit apartment block in Butler will close on Monday, February 29.

The City of Wanneroo this month invited comments on Aquavante Apartments plans, designed by Rob Anson Architects, for a block on the corner of Camborne Parkway and Marmion Avenue.

“The existing site is a carpark and children’s playground used to service the Eden Beach housing estate display homes and land sales office,” a traffic report by Shawmac Pty Ltd said.

“The development proposal is for a three-storey multiple dwelling development consisting of 54 residential apartments on three levels with sheltered parking provided at ground level.”

The report said traffic movements on surrounding streets were 1142 vehicles a day on Newmarket Parade, 17,613 on Marmion Avenue and 2326 on Camborne Parkway.

“It is estimated that the proposed development has the potential to generate approximately 254 vehicle trips per day, or approximately 25 vehicles in the morning and afternoon peak-hour periods,” it said.

According to the traffic report, the nearest bus stops are 260m away on Marmion and 400m away on Camborne, while Butler Station is 1.2km away.

The plans proposed 70 car- parking bays, with 61 allocated to dwellings and nine for visitors, plus four verge bays.

“For 54 dwellings, a minimum of 18 resident and six visitor bicycle parking spaces are required,” the report said.

“Seventeen bicycle racks are provided within the gates parking area.”
