Six community members have been appointed by Planning Minister Donna Faragher to be part of a new advisory group that will provide local feedback on a proposed road extension included in the $75.4 million Scarborough foreshore redevelopment master plan.
The six community members are:
- Wayne Bowen - Chairman, Scarborough Beach Association
- Rae Kolb - Convenor, Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare Group
- Mike Banning - Scarborough resident
- Trisha Lee - Chairwoman, Scarborough Primary School Board
- Greg Tate - Scarborough resident
- David Bryant - retired Principal and surf club member
According to Minister Faragher, community consultation is vital to major redevelopment projects because it is a key step in achieving the correct solutions for challenging planning and development.
“I am pleased to invite these six residents, business owners and environmental representatives to work alongside the Liberal National Government and the City of Stirling to help plan and design the north and south extensions of The Esplanade.” – Minister Donna FaragherScarborough redevelopment master plan (source: Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority WA)
Construction is underway for the Scarborough foreshore redevelopment in Western Australia with demolition of the former surf club and community centre completed. The lead contractor for this project is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Minister Faragher also said that major works on the foreshore will begin in September and Sunset Hill – the new beachfront destination – is expected to begin operations in mid-2017.
“The road extensions will help improve traffic flow and accessibility in and around the Scarborough foreshore. They are not part of the current works scope and require a further 18 months to two years of planning and approvals, starting with a detailed design process which the community advisory group will provide feedback on.”
