Yanchep surf club delay

Wanneroo City Council received an update on plans to build a new facility beside Yanchep Lagoon at its December 10 meeting, which outlined conditions set by the WA Planning Commission (WAPC).

It said the WAPC had approved the development application in October with 11 conditions, seven of which the administration deemed ‘acceptable’. However, it said the 11th condition required the City to develop a coastal hazard risk management and adaptation plan before starting detailed design.

‘The need to produce and have approved a coastal hazard risk management and adaption plan will delay the start of the design and documentation process by six to nine months,’ the report said.

‘It is expected that delivery of (that) report will occur in June or July 2014.’

The report said the City would ask the WAPC to reconsider if it found it was too costly or impractical to install an on-site drainage system that could cater for a one-in-100-year storm. It said the requirement to connect the building to sewerage and water services would be met when the Water Corporation approved services connecting to existing ones in the Capricorn Coastal Village estate.

The City will develop its environmental management plan once it receives a clearing permit from the Department of Environment Regulation.
