Residents can have say on future development of West Leederville and Wembley

TOWN of Cambridge residents have until Friday to have a say on the future development of West Leederville and Wembley.

The public consultation period was extended after the Town received feedback at open sessions in recent weeks where a scenario that earmarked the two suburbs for higher housing density, but little for City Beach and Floreat was presented.

The West Leederville Residents Association (WLRA) has urged residents to say no to higher density.

WLRA chairwoman Anne Lake said the suggested distribution of density was not a fair one.

She said the group held its own information session for residents on April 3 and the issue “generated the most interest and passion of residents than any other past issue”.

“West Leederville School and other amenities cannot accommodate further population increases,” she said.

The Town will compile feedback and bring a report to council in May with the recommendation to run further consultation forums with the community in June.
