The application was reviewed at a May 27 Development Assessment Panel meeting, but deferred to May 30 as the applicant was seeking amendments to some of the conditions and the City of Wanneroo needed to investigate further.

In a presentation to the metropolitan north-west panel on May 27, TPG Town Planning managing director David Caddy, representing Coles Group Property Dev Ltd, asked for six conditions to be modified or deleted.

He requested the left-in/left-out access point to the proposed shopping centre from Joondalup Drive be amended to also allow traffic to turn right into the site until Golf Links Drive was constructed.

City of Wanneroo planning implementation manager Pas Bracone said he would need to refer to the City’s traffic experts for more information and approved the amendment on May 30.

He said the City’s traffic engineers were comfortable with the safety of the right-in movement from Joondalup Drive.

At this stage, it is required the access points at Joondalup Drive and Pinjar Road become left-in/left-out only after Golf Links Drive is constructed, but there is an opportunity for the applicant to revisit this in the future.

The 5.63ha site will include a shop, restaurant, consulting room, office, take-away food outlet, liquor store and bank, with three detached buildings for two more takeaway food outlets and a convenience store.
