The referral received by the EPA is to develop Lot 701 for residential use. The land is zoned 'Urban' under the Metropolitan Region Scheme and 'Residential' (with a residential density coding of R30) under the City of Cockburn Town Planning Scheme No.3.
Lot 701 totals approximately 1.71 hectares, of which Auro Pty Ltd proposes to develop approximately one hectare. The subdivision application proposes 16 residential dwellings and a proposed Public Open Space.
Approximately two thirds of Lot 701, including 4,180m2 of the proposed development area, is within an Environmental Protection (Swan Coastal Plain Lakes) Policy 1992 (Lakes EPP) boundary. Lot 701 is also within a part of Beeliar Regional Park known as Market Garden Swamp.
