PUBLIC consultation on a plan to guide future development of high density housing and commercial buildings in the Wanneroo town centre closes next week.

The City of Wanneroo has invited submissions on its activity centre plan for Wanneroo until February 14.

According to the City’s website, the proposed plan will guide the future development of a “vibrant, progressive and prosperous town centre” and focal point for business and the local community.

The draft plan, which the council agreed to advertise for consultation at its December meeting, proposes high-density housing and commercial development in a bushland buffer between Ingham’s poultry farm and the civic centre.

It proposed increased building heights up to eight storeys and development intensity, as well as introducing medium residential densities of R60 to R100 where the buffer zone lies.

According to the December council report, ultimate development would yield 2000 to 3000 dwellings, accommodating up to 6600 people by 2041.
