New beachside suburb moves ahead

A new beachside suburb accommodating for 1,000 homes in the City of Wanneroo has taken a step forward with amendments to the metropolitan region scheme tabled in parliament today.

Planning Minister John Day said the suburb, called Jindee, will be a compact, mixed-use village that will be pedestrian and cycle oriented.

"There will also be a range of residential densities allowing for a variety of housing choices and a tourist, lifestyle and entertainment focus," Mr Day said.

"It represents the latest thinking in subdivision and suburb design and it will be exciting to see the locality unfold at Jindee.

"The development will create areas of regional open space and preserve sensitive landforms.

"The development meets the Government objective of providing land for future housing."

A preliminary agreement on the Jindee proposal was first reached in 2007 between then Planning Minister Alannah MacTiernan, WA Planning Commission, City of Wanneroo and Nedlands-based Estates Development Company.

The scheme amendments are required to sit in both houses of parliament for 12 sitting days before becoming effective.

Once passed, the project will require subsequent development approvals.
