Two Rocks sign approved for safety

A DEVELOPER received approval for a sign in the Two Rocks Road reserve after citing safety concerns.

Acumen Development Solutions principal Nick Perrignon spoke about the application for a sign for Atlantis Beach estate before last Tuesday’s Wanneroo City Council meeting.

The developer had applied to install a pylon sign that would be 2m high and 1.85m wide with a 2.2m support in the road reserve near Blaxland Avenue.

Mr Perrignon indicated that the sign would direct people coming into Two Rocks towards the first stage of the development on Blaxland Avenue, or north towards the land sales office.

He said more potential buyers and construction workers were driving into the suburb along the single-lane road, which had a speed limit change from 90km/h to 60km/h south of the Blaxland junction.

“They need to decelerate safely; they need clear directions,” he said.

Mr Perrignon told councillors the developer had spent $250,000 in Two Rocks to “freshen the town up and give it a new appeal”.

“We would like to grow the community and we would like to add to your ratepayers base and we would like to do that safely,” he said.

Councillors approved the sign at their October 13 meeting, with one vote against from Cr Sabine Winton.
