A YANCHEP developer plans to hold two community information sessions about its plans for the former Club Capricorn Resort site.

Capricorn Beach estate project director Jarrod Rendell said the events in late September would enable the developer to advise residents of its plans for the beachfront land.

“The Capricorn Yanchep development team and the project consultants have been finalising the plans for the future development of the Capricorn coastal node that brings together about 18 months of work into a vision for a relaxed and inclusive coastal recreation and precinct,” he said.

“As part of this development process, a suite of reports and applications have recently been lodged with the City of Wanneroo and Department of Planning to achieve the formal approvals of the proposed development.

“These applications include a foreshore management plan that sets out a management plan for the coast in front of Capricorn over the next 100 years, along with the first subdivision plan and detail landscaping plans for the feature Capricorn coastal node park.

“A key feature of the redevelopment of the area is retaining many of the large mature trees and the undulating topography of the site – two aspects that are unique and iconic to the Yanchep beachfront area.

“The entry road to the beachfront area will be developed to reflect an arrival into a ‘national park’, with the road passing through a canopy of large mature trees that exist along the existing private road down to the beachfront.”

Mr Rendell said the natural beachfront area would have a feature playground and large grassed areas for picnics and community events and concerts.

He said the beachfront development would include mixed-use medium density residential development and a tourism facility with conference, wedding and family-style accommodation.

“While development of the initial stages of the redevelopment will commence in early 2018, it is expected that all the development surrounding the Capricorn coastal node will be ongoing over the next five to seven years, complementing the development of the local neighbourhood retail village precinct on Two Rocks Road,” he said.

“The entry road to the Capricorn coastal node will eventually link all the way from the (future) Yanchep city centre railway station, through the Capricorn neighbourhood village centre and down to the coastal node beachfront park.”

Mr Rendell said it would have public transport and shaded paths for pedestrians.

To register for the information sessions, which will be at the Capricorn Yanchep sales office on Parkside Street in the last week of September, email admin@capricornproject.com.au before September 17.
