EPRA boundary stretch finalised
THE way has been formally opened for the East Perth Redevelopment Authority’s boundary extension.

The authority will extend its reach to the northern side of Adelaide Terrace, eastwards to and around the side of Trinity Avenue to the Swan River and along the foreshore back to its original boundaries.

One of the main reasons given for the extension is the opportunity to redevelop the four buildings on WA Government-owned land between Plain Street and the roundabout including police headquarters, the old Metrobus depot and the WA Chemistry Centre.

While the EPRA is developing its design guidelines for the extended area, council wants its City Planning Scheme Number 1 to be used as a guide for development applications in the area.

A staff note to council said there was some concern as to how the EPRA would assess development applications.

Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass said the extension of the EPRA boundaries gave the city the chance to develop an excellent entrance statement from the Causeway.
