HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [1.03 pm]: I present a petition containing 826 signatures couched in the following terms —
To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.
We the undersigned are seriously concerned that the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) has not adhered to the Scarborough Planning Framework and Design Guidelines which establishes the base height controls of 2–12 storeys for all buildings in the Scarborough Redevelopment Area.
The MRA has instead approved the Chinese owned 3 Oceans Property development proposal for two towers of 43 and 33 storeys at the corner of Scarborough Beach Rd and West Coast Hwy. This site is designated for 12 storeys under the Scarborough Planning Framework.
We therefore ask the Legislative Council to protect our coastal environment by:
1. Recommend that the Minister for Planning to direct the MRA Board to adhere to the Scarborough Planning Framework which requires all developments within the Scarborough Redevelopment Area to be a maximum of 12 storeys.
2. Recommend that the Minister to direct the MRA Board to reject the 3 Oceans proposal as it does not adhere to the aforesaid Scarborough Planning Framework, Design Guidelines and Height Controls agreed with the community following public consultation in 2016.
