PLANS for a 54-unit residential development in Butler will go before a development assessment panel tomorrow.

The North West Metropolitan DAP will consider TPG Town Planning’s application on behalf of the Housing Authority and Diamond Health at 10am on July 15.

The plans relate to a 4453sq m block on Newmarket Parade, overlooking the Marmion Avenue and Camborne Parkway intersection.

The $10.45 million development proposes a four-storey building with 47 two-bedroom units, seven three-bedroom units and 74 parking bays.

Earlier this year, nearby residents raised concerns about the scale of the development in what they described as a low density housing area and the number of parking bays.A report by City of Wanneroo staff recommends the panel approve the plans with 10 standard conditions when it meets at the Wanneroo Civic Centre tomorrow.
