    We thank you for your contribution to the Crystal Brook community engagement and concept planning process to date. The City of Kalamunda and Roberts Day greatly value all feedback received during the advertising period.

    As stated in our previous correspondence in July 2020, we are pleased to have received over 200 submissions and over 50 surveys on the draft Concept Plan. Over the course of the past few months the City and Roberts Day have been reviewing submissions and preparing a schedule of proposed modifications to the Concept Plan and Report. The City has discussed the consideration process further with the City’s Councillors. Considering the significant community responses received, we envisage that members of the community will want to make many deputations and ask questions. In light of this, the City will alter its usual consideration process in order to ensure the community have the time to absorb the report and have the time to discuss the item. To achieve this, the City can advise of the following process:

    1. The City release online the Officer Report/Recommendation for the item and associated attachments on 14 October 2020 for the community to view (available via Document Library)
    2. The Officer Report/Recommendation will then be released through the usual November 2020 Draft Public Agenda Briefing and Ordinary Council Meeting process.
    3. The City will provide a brief presentation of the Officer Report/Recommendation at the Draft Public Agenda Briefing on 10 November 2020. This will be an opportunity for community members to hear from the City in regard to the report. No decision will be made at this meeting. Those wanting to ask questions and speak to the item are encouraged to do so on the dedicated evening on the 17 November 2020 (detailed outlined in Point 4 below).
    4. The City and Council will dedicate, in accordance with Clause 6.13 of the City’s Standing Orders Local Law 2015 (Standing Orders), the evening of the 17 November 2020 for questions to be asked and deputations to be made on the item. This will enable the item to be given unimpeded attention by all stakeholders. Formalisation of this process by resolution of the Council will occur at the October 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting in accordance with the Standing Orders.
    5. The item will be presented to Council at the 24 November 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting for consideration. Those wanting to ask questions and speak to the item are encouraged to do so on the dedicated evening on the 17 November 2020.

    Should any changes occur regarding the schedule, the City will advise you as soon as the information becomes available. We thank you for your understanding and patience.

    Should you have any questions, contact Mitchell Brooks, Senior Strategic Planner at Mitchell.brooks@kalamunda.wa.gov.au.

    Yours sincerely

    Crystal Brook (Wattle Grove South) Community Engagement and Concept Planning

    We thank you for your contribution to the Wattle Grove South community engagement process. The City and Roberts Day greatly value the feedback that has been received and look forward to utilising this information moving forward in the process.

    We understand this is a very uncertain and stressful time for the community during the Covid-19 pandemic and the City will support its community as best as it can during this time, including being flexible and innovative during its engagement processes and project delivery.

    The City and Roberts Day are intending to continue the process that has been commenced for this project and have reviewed the timeline and the way that activities will be undertaken considering changes necessitated by current circumstances. Despite the situation we remain committed to ensuring the community has ample opportunity to provide further feedback on the Concept Plan that is being prepared and that this can be done in an interactive way.

    In terms of next steps, the City expects:

    • Early May Advertising of Concept Plans commences. Advertised via letters, emails, social media and engage Kalamunda project page.
    • Early / Mid May: Online open house with live Q &A to be delivered through a Webinar platform. Recording of the open house will be made available on the Engage Kalamunda project page for community members who are unable to participate.
    • June: Advertising closes
    • July: Concept Plans and reports presented to Council for consideration.

    Feedback summaries are included for each part of the outcomes report, with the appendix including a copy of the raw data.

    We’ve received invaluable feedback through our survey, stakeholder round-tables and the recent Vision Workshop held on the 5 February. Your ongoing involvement will help us to ensure that future planning in the Wattle Growth South area meets the expectations of its community.

    At the Vision Workshop, we advised there would likely be two Co-Design Workshops due to the high level of interest. We also heard that attendees do not want this process rushed and would like a chance to review the Vision Workshop Outcomes summary ahead of the Co-design sessions.

    Based on this feedback the timing of the co-design workshops have been adjusted. The Co-Design workshop planned for the 29th February has been cancelled and will be replaced by two separate sessions held in mid-March.

    The format will be repeated for each session, so you are invited to attend one of the sessions listed below:

    • Session One: Wednesday, 11 March 5:30pm-8:30pm @ Woodlupine Community Centre, 88 Hale Road, Forrestfield
    • Session Two: Saturday, 14 March 9am – 12noon @ Woodlupine Community Centre, 88 Hale Road, Forrestfield

    Please nominate your preferred date or time via RSVP form below.
    Numbers will be limited to 20 people per session to ensure all participants can be effectively involved in the exploration of design ideas and genuinely take part in collaborative planning.

    Background
    You told us you want to develop a vision focused on rural and residential development in keeping with existing character, and we heard you.

    We've been working with the local community to put together a plan for Wattle Grove South’s future that accommodates managed residential growth while also protecting the area’s rural character, environmental qualities and strong community that make it special.
