In June 2014, the State Government announced the Forrestfield Airport Link, a $2 billion train line connecting with the Midland line near Bayswater Station, servicing the airport and finishing in the Forrestfield/High Wycombe area. The train line is scheduled to be up and running by 2020. Following this announcement, the State Government requested the Shire of Kalamunda explore the opportunities that a new train station could bring to the surrounding areas. This meant moving away from the industrial land uses, previously proposed, and focusing on urban uses more suitable for a train station precinct.
The new focus resulted in planning for the delivery of high density residential, a new activity centre and a commercially focused Transit Oriented Development precinct based around the new train station. In line with the draft North-East Subregional Framework, the focus of the high level District Structure Plan is to connect people with their place of work and recreation.
The planning process is well underway. Kalamunda Council approved the draft District Structure Plan on 29th September 2015, which was approved by the State Government on 4th October 2016. Take a look at the project plan or have a read of some of the previously prepared documents.
