CHANGES to the approved $450 million major expansion of Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre will be considered by the Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) on January 17.

The expansion will take place across five lots on Ellen Stirling Boulevard and Scarborough Beach Road and on Oswald Street.

City of Stirling officers recommended approval for applicants Urbis Pty Ltd’s amended plans subject to conditions including for the owner, RE1 Limited and Scentre Management Ltd, to undertake transport network upgrade works, develop a geotechnical report and drain management plan.

The transport network upgrade works are proposed for Scarborough Beach Road, Ellen Stirling Boulevard, Oswald Street, Sarich Court, King Edward Road and Cedric Street.

Other amendments to the previously approved plans include an additional left-in only crossover from Ellen Stirling Boulevard, north of Oswald Street, modifications to vehicle ramp structures and internal vehicle paths and an increase in car parking bays to 4077 bays.

The expansion will feature shops, offices, fast food outlets, restaurants, a tavern, a cinema, child care premises, betting agency, a veterinary and medical centres.

According to a City officer’s report, the City supported the majority of the changes however conditions relating to road network works in some parts must be retained and adjourning infrastructure upgrades must align with the Stirling City Centre Structure Plan.

JDAP first approved the expansion in July 2015 before passing further amendments in December 2016.
