New dimension to lagoon plans

Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association president Peter Wimsett put forward the idea at the October 28 meeting while likening the reaction to a retaining wall on Brazier Road to the opposition to Yanchep’s controversial aluminium boardwalk.

‘Council have surprised us yet again ” they have built a replica of the Great Wall of China on the beach,’ he said.

‘It may turn out all right in the end (but) I suggest we write to Council and ask that we get scale models of things like that.

‘It is very hard for us to read as a two-dimensional plan.’

Members also said they wanted the mural at Fisherman’s Hollow to remain.

Responding to questions at the October 15 council meeting from Nowergup resident Sabine Winton, who has since been elected to the council, Wanneroo’s infrastructure director Dennis Blair said the plan to lower the realign the boardwalk would be submitted to the Department of Planning in late October.

Mr Blair said the City was still confident it would meet the two-year deadline set by the State Administrative Tribunal in August 2012 to alter the boardwalk, and plans and clearing approvals were available on the City’s website.
