Henley Brook Rezoning Approved
Victor P Taffa
- Amendment supports targeted urbanisation near planned METRONET stations
- Rezoning to consolidate development in area of fast population growth
- Amendment completes urbanisation between Ellenbrook and Brabham in the Swan Urban Growth Corridor
Planning Minister Rita Saffioti has approved the rezoning of more than 260 ha of land between Ellenbrook and Brabham, which will facilitate future housing along the future METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line.
“This rezoning is part of our plan for the sustainable development of Perth’s fast-growing north-east corridor.” Minister for Planning Rita Saffioti said.
“Critically, it is designed to ensure a more consolidated footprint that aligns with future public transport planning, including connections to future METRONET stations.”
Land in Henley Brook surrounded by Lord Street, Gnangara Road and Park Street has been rezoned from Rural to Urban in the Metropolitan Region Scheme.
This amendment represents the next stage in the urbanisation of the Swan Urban Growth Corridor, in keeping with the North-East Sub-regional Planning Framework.
Amendment will facilitate further planning to enable the future development of the area for residential and related purposes, consolidating the north-east metropolitan urban footprint.
Transfer of the amendment area to urban will not prevent existing landowners from continuing to use their properties for current purposes, but will provide planning certainty for those who wish to further develop their properties in the future.
