THE amended North Stoneville SP 34 is now available for public comment.
A replacement Part3B of the amended structure plan was submitted by Satterley on February 20, which according to Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage has been incorporated into the amended structure plan documentation.
The amended structure plan is now being advertised for public comment for a minimum period of 42 days.
DPLH said interested parties including the community, the Shire of Mundaring, the City of Swan and government agencies such as the Department of Fire and Emergency Services are invited to provide comment on the amended structure plan.
On Tuesday about 50 Save Perth Hills (SPH) supporters protested outside Satterley’s against the proposed North Stoneville development.
After the Satterley protest SPH went to Parliament House to handover a petition of 2500 signatures to Greens MLC Dr Brad Pettitt and Labor’s East Metropolitan MLC Lorna Harper.
The petition seeks to have the government reverse its rejection of a key Wooroloo Bushfire Inquiry recommendation, that DFES be granted decision-making powers to have the final say on housing development approvals, such as North Stoneville, when they’re located in extreme bushfire zones.
An SPH spokesperson said they examining the amended plan with its subject matter experts and would soon provide an easy-to-follow summary for people interested in preparing a submission.
The revised structure plan identifies the future proposed land uses within the project area as including three separate villages, residential land uses comprising, 42 natural living lots (average 1ha), 647 suburban lots (average 1700sqm), 312 village urban lots (average 1200 sqm), a local centre, two educational sites, recycled wastewater infrastructure, internal road network and 22 areas of public open space (POS), including local/active POS, conservation POS and special sites.
It also includes creek corridors and drainage basins, bushfire emergency and fire service access routes and multiple connections to the surrounding existing public road network.
North Stoneville SP 34 is expected to be developed over about a 15-year time period, with staggered subdivision stages.
Construction is anticipated to commence within village 2 with initial access from Roland Road.
The revised structure plan says existing public roads will be upgraded to provide for a road network that can support the planned population growth in both normal and emergency conditions.
