Planning Minister John Day today released the Perth Waterfront Metropolitan Region Scheme amendment for Public Comment.

The amendment proposes consolidating approximately 19.75 hectares of existing parks and recreation, waterways and regional roads reservations to a Public Purpose Special Use Reserve.

Mr. Day said following on from the State Government’s recent commitment to fund capital works, the amendment was another tangible step towards making the waterfront project a reality.

“The Perth Waterfront project is one of the highest profile projects for Perth and this scheme amendment will help establish the planning framework and allow further technical investigations and works to be carried out.” the Minister said.

 

 

“The Public will have an opportunity to have their say on the proposed rezoning and will also be able to provide comment on the Perth Waterfront Environmental Assessment Report which outlines the environmental factors for consideration and proposed management measures.”

The total area of the amendment provides sufficient flexibility to accommodate refinements to the design and future construction works.

The Perth Waterfront Metropolitan Region Scheme amendment and the Environmental Assessment Report will be open for Public Comment until Friday, May 27.
