The proposal involves rezoning, subdivision and development of land bounded by Russell Road to the north, Rockingham Road to the east, Regional Open Space to the south and the proposed Fremantle-Rockingham Highway to the west for industria! purposes.
lt is proposed to rezone a portion of the land from Rural to General Industry, and the remainder from Rural to Parks and Recreation. The boundary ol the proposed Parks and Recreation land would be consistent with the adopted boundary of the Beeliar Regional Park, and the land would be transferred to public ownership as public open space contribution.The proponent has undertaken to restore fringing vegetation associated with the wetland, and upgrade an existing limestone track to a dual use path (with bridge or culvert) to allow for public access and improve surface water flow between the northern wetland and the main wetland to the south.
The General Industry land is proposed to be used to accommodate support facilities for the Coogee ship building industry such as ship and boat building, panel and sheet metal works and boat outfitting and finishing. No noxious, special or heavy industry is planned. The development would be serviced by sewerage and water supply, and road drainage is proposed to be directed to sedimentation or compensation basins, and lot drainage contained onsite where possible to facilitate nutrient stripping.
