In August 2014, the City of Gosnells (CoG) completed all necessary studies in support of the rezoning of the major portion of Maddington Kenwick Strategic Employment Area (MKSEA) within their boundaries, from ‘Rural’ to ‘Industrial’. 13% of MKSEA-identified land is within the City of Kalamunda’s boundaries. The MKSEA is bounded by Welshpool Road East and the CoG boundary.
May 2020Precinct 3C is a section of MKSEA zoned Industrial under the Metropolitan Region Scheme and under the Local Planning Scheme includes properties zoned Special Rural, Public Purposes and Private Clubs and Institutions respectively. Once an MRS Amendment is approved generally the Local Government is required to amend the Local Planning Scheme so the zoning is consistent. Given the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has directed the City of Gosnells to undertake an Environmental Review which may affect recommendations for Precinct 3C the City of Kalamunda has been granted a number of extensions by the WAPC pending outcomes of the review.
In the meantime the City of Kalamunda is progressing a number of technical studies, including a flora and fauna survey for Precinct 3C completed in Spring 2019. To view the full report see a copy below in Related Documents. ”
