INFILL development and flattening large blocks could be the future of older parts of Yanchep and Two Rocks, Wanneroo MLA Paul Miles says.
The comments were made at the Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association meeting on March 21, where Mr Miles praised the group for being one of a few to still hold monthly meetings.
The State MP said the increasing population of the area – up from about 3000 when he was a Wanneroo councillor in 2008 to about 10,000 now – brought infrastructure challenges to upgrade sewerage and roads.
“(The challenge) is being able to retrofit the older parts of Yanchep, the older parts of Two Rocks,” he said.
“Some of those dunes have to be pulled down.
“Quinns Rocks has quite a bit of building going on; older houses (are) getting knocked over.
“I think that will happen in Yanchep.
“You will be a lot larger than Joondalup is today.”
The next TRYRA meeting will be postponed to May 2 due to the Anzac Day public holiday falling on the fourth Monday of April.
