Rubbish land to be developed

PLANNER Whelans has been appointed to supply planning consultancy services for Tamala Park in Mindarie.

Tamala Park is one of council’s largest assets. Council has a one third share in the park which is currently used as a dumping ground for its rubbish trucks.

The City of Joondalup, another of the municipalities in tripartite ownership of Tamala Park, will be acting on council’s behalf in regard to the consultancy contract.

Councillor Michael Sutherland said 227 hectares of the park had been identified for urban development.

“Another 205 hectares has been identified for greenbelt,” Mr Sutherland said. “That land is going to become increasingly more valuable.

But Councillor Laurance Goodman said council had been badly treated on the site. He said the greenbelt requirements were onerous.

“If the bush plan goes through the value of the land will decrease,” Mr Goodman said. “Because we are a municipality it seems the whole ‘green’ requirement has been given to us."
