Infill planning for Subiaco must meet community expectations: Greens

Greens Member for North Metropolitan Region Hon Alison Xamon MLC has warned distrust in the State planning system will continue to grow, if infill targets are applied without full community engagement and sound strategic planning.

Ms Xamon said people in the City of Subiaco – as well as the City of Nedlands – were outraged at the heavy-handed way the WAPC has amended Local Planning Scheme consultation documents to greatly increase R-codes across substantial portions of their Cities. 


HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [9.48 pm]: I rise tonight to speak about a number of local planning issues that are arising in the North Metropolitan Region. During the winter recess I was approached by a number of residents and community groups from different parts of my region who are quite concerned about the future of their neighbourhoods. Their concern is primarily about the management of infill within Perth. The Greens are very supportive of the principle of infill; it is an important strategy to prevent an ever-expanding Perth region.
