Development Contribution Plan Review

Background

The Wattle Grove Cell 9 development area is located within the City of Kalamunda and is generally bound by Tonkin Highway, Roe Highway, and Welshpool Road East.

The Wattle Grove Cell 9 Local Structure Plan (the LSP) has been prepared to facilitate residential subdivision and development within the area. Due to the nature of fragmented land ownership, a Development Contribution Plan (DCP) has been prepared to coordinate the provision of common infrastructure required to cater for development.

Engagement Activities

The DCP was adopted by Council for the purpose of public advertising on 26 March 2019. The review was advertised to landowners, who are yet to develop, from 8 April 2019 to 13 May 2019 (a period of 35 days). A total of one (1) submission was received.

The submission suggested retaining the existing rate adopted in the previous DCP (May 2017) to cover any potential cost blow outs. As the DCP incorporates contingencies, additional costs are covered. All items are carefully costed, and lot yields calculated.

Therefore, the new rate in DCP Report was recommended to be adopted.

Outcome

On the 27 August 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to adopt the proposed Development Contribution Plan Report and the reviewed rate.
