LANDSDALE residents can have their say on planning changes to allow 106 dwellings to be built across seven properties.

The owners of lots bounded by Kevo Place, Warradale Terrace, Rockdale Pass, Grayswood Court and homes along Raeside Drive have applied to the City of Wanneroo to rezone their land from special residential to R40.

The 3.5ha site would encompass 106 homes, where there are currently six.

Councillors supported the amendments at the November 7 meeting, subject to approval from the WA Planning Commission and Environmental Protection Authority, and the changes are now open for public comment via the City until March 17.

Surrounding properties are zoned R20 to R30, ranging in lot size from 450sq m to 770sq m.

An R40 zoning has an average site area of 220sq m per dwelling.

Documents supporting the proposal said the site had good public transport access, with a bus stop directly opposite that services seven bus routes.

It said the area would benefit from increased density, which was in line with State and City planning policy.

“The R40 coding will not generate the need for new roads and the subject land parcels can be developed as independent blocks of town houses,” it said.

“This is a highly sustainable area that is well served by existing infrastructure, community facilities and local amenities.

“The scheme amendment will facilitate better development of the subject land, which will positively contribute to the State and local government requirements for higher-density residential development in sustainable locations; in order to accommodate the projected population growth for the City of Wanneroo.”
