Aveley one step closer to new primary school

THE planned Aveley North Primary School has moved a step closer.

The Metro East Joint Development Assessment Panel last week approved architect plans for the school in Strinesdale Boulevard, Aveley.

Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright welcomed the school approval at the Stockland Development land.

“Aveley is one of the fastest-growing areas in the City and is home to many families with young children,” he said.

“The school will accommodate up to 600 students from kindergarten to Year 6, so I am sure the decision will be welcomed by the community also.”

The panel, which met in the Swan Council Chambers, approved the Sandover Pinder Architects plans subject to a note being placed on the Certificate of Title that the school was in a bushfire-prone area.

The approval did not include the “possible future teaching block” or any “future transportable buildings”.

The Department of Parks and Wildlife Swan Region reviewed the proposal and said the site did not contain conservation-category wetland identified in the Wetland Management Strategy (1995).

“Due to the degraded nature of the area and the current land use, it would appear that the wetland no longer retains resource enhancement wetland characteristics,” the department said.
