City hopes to do splits

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the proposed amendment to change housing precinct coding from low to medium density would give landowners more options when building or subdividing.

�A split density coding of R20/40 and R20/60 in Wanneroo, Girrawheen and Koondoola was adopted in February,� she said.

�The implementation of a split density code over the Girrawheen-Koondoola and Wanneroo housing precincts is seen as the optimum solution to complex infrastructure and urban design issues.�

The WA Planning Commission approved the draft scheme amendment for public advertising.

If adopted, the amendment will be sent to the commission for assessment and the Planning Minister for final approval.

Wanneroo City staff will provide information and answer questions on the proposed re-coding at Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre on Thursday, July 2, from 3 to 6pm and Newpark Shopping Centre in Girrawheen on Thursday, July 9 and 16, from 3 to 6pm.
