THE North West Metropolitan Development Assessment Panel has approved a $2.05 million development on Landbeach Boulevard in Butler.

The 3394sq m site on the corner of Beneden Avenue and the future Butler Boulevard extension will include a 7-Eleven fuel station and convenience store plus a Muzz Buzz drive-through.

First presented at a May meeting, the panel deferred a decision to allow the applicant, Rowe Group on behalf of Butler Land Company, to revise plans to include window glazing facing Butler Boulevard.

Proposing 55 per cent glazing rather than the required 60 per cent, the applicant said the northern end of the development would have a high level of passive surveillance due to it prominence on Butler Boulevard.

It also proposed to install CCTV cameras to record and warn of anti-social behaviour.

The City of Wanneroo report said staff found the changes were acceptable for the landmark site, with more than half the concrete wall replaced with glass.

The building will have a coloured screen of metal blades on the north and west facing sides of the building, plus landscaping and benches in an alfresco area for customers. Happy the amendments would provide surveillance of the pedestrian area, the five-member panel unanimously approved the plans at its June 13 meeting.

Council greenlight on warehouses

THE City of Wanneroo council has approved a development application for 16 warehouses at 166 Landbeach Boulevard in Butler.

Councillors approved the proposed two-storey development for the 6719sqm lot on April 5 despite one submission that objected due to traffic impacts and the scale of the development.

A report from City staff said the proposal complied with all requirements.
