Tues 16 Dec - submissions on rezoning on Glyde Road, Lesmurdie

posted 12 Dec 2014, 14:55 by Wilkins Road   [ updated 12 Dec 2014, 23:58 ]
A private landholder is seeking to rezone their 2.27 Ha parcel of trees and bushland in Lesmurdie from 'Public Purpose - Church' to 'Residential R5', and develop 10 houses on the land. This is a quarter of the size of the land proposed to be cleared for the development on Wilkins Rd. The Shire of Kalamunda has stated that there is a shortage of large parcels of land for aged care.

If the trees and bush are going to be cleared anyway when this land is rezoned to Urban, maybe the Shire should keep the zoning for the Public Purpose and encourage the landholder to look at aged care facilities on the site.

Submission on this rezoning are due Tuesday 16 December.

Forms should be submitted to the Shire of Kalamunda. The form can be faxed to the number on the form, or scanned and emailed to: If you write your own letter instead of using the pro forma, make sure you sign and date it!

Below is a map of the area to be cleared. The site fronts Glyde Rd, Lesmurdie, but is adjacent to the Villa Maria aged care hostel, so maybe shared facilities could be an option. Although not in a sewered area, we heard at the public information evening that there is the technology for on-site sewerage treatment options.

The subdivision concept for the site:
