THE Craigie High School site is the latest Western Australian school property to attract the interest of developers, with the land parcel the focus of a joint venture between the state government and a private developer. The government is calling for a private developer to help it redevelop the 10.15-hectare school site, bordered by Arawa Place and Camberwarra Drive in Craigie, which was closed in 2003 and demolished the following year. Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said the aim of the project was to preserve the site’s current landform and vegetation, including the integration and protection of the nearby dunes, into the development. Craigie will be the fourth Department of Education and Training site in the metropolitan area to be developed by the government in joint venture with a private developer, following Carine Tafe, Swanbourne High School and the Hollywood High School in Nedlands. It is intended the successful proponent for the Carine Tafe site, to be announced shortly, will commence consultation with the community and stakeholders before the end of the year to guide the creation of a structure plan.
