The proposal is for the subdivision of approximately 89 hectares of land being Lot 502 bound by North Lake, Phoenix and Sudlow Roads and a rail reserve. The subdivision proposes approximately 190 lots for general industrial and mixed business use, and sets aside land for open space and road purposes.
The site is immediately to the west of South Lake. South Lake is part of Beeliar Regional Park and Bushplan Site No. 254, and is subject to the provisions of the Environmental Protection (Swan Coastal Plain Lakes) Policy. The site contains extensive areas of remnant vegetation and is partly affected by waste products of the Amcor paper mill. The site is zoned Industrial under the Metropolitan Region Scheme and General Industry under the City of Cockburn District Zoning Scheme.
Following this assessment, the report and recommendations to the Minister and appeals decisions, the proposal was remitted to the EPA for further assessment.
