Kwinana: call for feedback on Mandogalup planning policy

RESIDENTS and ratepayers in the City of Kwinana are being invited to have their say on a draft Local Planning Policy on the future of the Mandogalup area.

The draft policy, which was developed under the City’s Town Planning Scheme No 2, provides guidance to landowners, developers and Council to ensure that future development, zoning and structure planning in the area occurs in a manner consistent with Council’s vision.

Mayor Carol Adams said the City had prepared the draft policy to inform the State Government as part of its current and future deliberations and to guide land use zoning.

“The City recognises the importance of the future development in the Mandogalup area and the impact that any planning changes will have on residents living within the area,” she said.

“As such the City has developed a draft position which outlines the type of land uses that may be permitted within the area including light industrial, residential, transition, station precinct and the freight road interface, and welcomes community input into the current position put forward by the City in the form of the draft policy.”

The City will also be holding two drop-in information sessions at the Darius Wells Centre, Ken Jackman Hall on Thursday, February 15 with an afternoon session from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and an evening session from 6pm to 8pm.

“The drop-in sessions allow residents to pop in at any time and speak with the City’s planning officers to discuss the draft policy and find out any information they might want to know about the proposed future development of Mandogalup,” she said.

The draft policy is available for inspection at the City of Kwinana Administration Office or can be viewed on the City’s website together with some frequently asked questions at http://kwinana.wa.gov.au/publicnotices.

Submissions on the draft policy may be made in writing and lodged on, or before, Thursday, March 15. Submissions may be posted to City of Kwinana, PO Box 21, Kwinana WA 6966 or emailed to admin@kwinana.wa.gov.au.
