Engagement Findings and Item to Committee
A report on this project is going to Planning Committee on Wednesday 7 April 2021. This report considers the feedback received during the recent community engagement, outlines the changes proposed in response, and recommends that Council formally adopt the revised Heart of Beaconsfield Masterplan concept as a non-statutory City document.
What we heard
82 submissions were received and reviewed. A significant number of submissions (about half) raised building height and residential density as a concern, particularly in regard to the quarry and old TAFE sites. In response to these concerns the revised plan proposes some reduction to both building heights and density to a more moderate/balanced level.
We also received many comments about community and recreation facilities, traffic and connectivity, and green spaces. To find out more about what we heard and how the feedback has been considered, you can read the agenda item here. You can also view the feedback in more detail in the Community Engagement Report available in the document library. Some of the comments received will also be considered as part of the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan 2021-31, which is currently under development.
Council meetings are open to the public. Members of the public are welcome to attend or speak at council or committee meetings and you can find more information on this here. The meeting details are:
Planning Committee - Wednesday 7 April 2021, 6.00pm. North Fremantle Community Hall, 2 Thompson Road, North Fremantle.
