PLANS to reduce public open space in Two Rocks to a dry park a third of the size are out for public comment.

The City of Wanneroo has invited submissions until April 26 on a structure plan change for the proposed park on Oregano Drive near Breakwater Drive.

The 2011 structure plan included a 4.76ha public open space, but the change would reduce it to a 1.76ha dry park with remaining land subdivided into residential lots.

A concept plan for the park includes a path network, bench seats, picnic setting, a nature play and conservation fencing.

The original structure plan has a 4.76ha park.

The Breakwater Estate developer originally planned to create six residential lots on the park site but scaled that back to four lots and a dry park early last year following community backlash.

A report was withdrawn from the February 2018 council meeting agenda to allow the City to organise a community meeting.

The structure plan amendment proposes creating a 1.7ha dry park and residential lots.
