The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) intends to amend the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) for land in the local government of Kwinana and is seeking public comment.
The amendment proposes to rezone approximately 70.37 ha of land in Wellard from the rural zone to the urban deferred zone in the MRS.
The Environmental Protection Authority required the proposed amendment to be formally assessed by way of an Environmental Review. An Environmental Review has been prepared for the Commission to examine the likely environmental impacts of the amendment if implemented, and puts forward proposed environmental management measures.
The Environmental Review is being advertised concurrently with the MRS Amendment so that comment can be made on both environmental and planning related matters.
The WAPC certifies that, in its opinion, the proposed amendment does not constitute a substantial alteration to the MRS.
The plans showing the proposed change and the WAPC amendment report which explains the proposal, will be available for public inspection from Tuesday 18 June 2013 to Friday 23 August 2013 at:
• Western Australian Planning Commission, Gordon Stephenson House, 140 William Street, Perth
• J S Battye Library, Level 3 Alexander Library Building, Perth Cultural Centre
• City of Kwinana
• City of Rockingham
Any person who desires to make a submission to support, object or provide comment on any part of the proposed amendment should do so on a form 57. This submission form is available from the display locations, the amendment report and the internet.
Submissions must be lodged with the: Secretary, Western Australian Planning Commission,
Locked Bag 2506, Perth WA 6001; on or before 5 pm Friday 23 August 2013.
Late submissions will not be considered.
