  • State Government moves to co-ordinate redevelopment on Lissiman Street, Gosnells
  • Local community to reap rewards from future developments
  • Vision for City of Gosnells strengthened

The State Government has taken steps to ensure the development potential of Gosnells, with an improvement plan released today for prime land opposite the railway station in Lissiman Street.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Planning Minister John Day said Lissiman Street had the potential to be a thriving transit-oriented location with a mix of amenities for the people of Gosnells.

Mr. Day said the plan would expedite development along the street, between Fremantle Road and Dorothy Street. The land is located near the Armadale railway line, opposite the Gosnells station and is part of a wider plan by the City of Gosnells to revitalise the precinct.

“The City of Gosnells Town Planning Scheme identifies the street as an active precinct with opportunities for appropriate development next to public transport.” the Minister said.

“Landowners have not been taking advantage of the opportunities available within the current planning framework.”

“Having an improvement plan in place means the State Government is in a strong position to work productively with private landholders, the local government and the development industry to deliver good community outcomes and realise the potential of Gosnells.”

Mr. Day said improvement plans were a tool the Government could call on after all options for negotiation with landowners had been exhausted. “I acknowledge the City of Gosnells for its work to encourage growth in the area through joint venture agreements with private landowners.” Mr. Day said.
