District structure plan setting long-term vision for East Wanneroo complete
Wednesday 18 August 2021
50-year plan to develop 8,000 hectares of land catering for 150,000 residents.
Planning Minister Rita Saffioti today released the final East Wanneroo District Structure Plan that sets a long-term vision for the growing area.
The plan sets a 50-year vision for the development of more than 8,000 hectares of land in Perth's northern suburbs which will cater for 150,000 residents, 50,000 homes and support up to 20,000 jobs.
A key priority was guiding how the area's sensitive water resources will be managed.
The strategy has now been approved by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, meaning hundreds of market gardeners, hobby farmers and long-term residents can move forward with plans to realise the value of their investment.
This State Government-led structure plan provides for 50,000 new dwellings, a district town centre, six high schools, and the potential creation of 280 hectares of new Parks and Recreation reserves including native bushland and wetlands.
The area includes parts of Wanneroo, Mariginiup, Gnangara, Jandabup and Pinjar.
More than 450 submissions were received on the draft plan and considered by the Western Australian Planning Commission.
