Local Structure Plan for Forrestfield North Residential Precinct Opens for Public Comment
Development of the draft Local Structure Plan for the Forrestfield North Residential Precinct is now complete and open for public comment. The draft plan was developed following extensive community consultation, including input from nearly 400 residents, and was approved by Council for the purpose of public advertising on 30 April 2018.
The purpose of the Local Structure Plan is to guide development around the new Forrestfield Train Station, currently under construction as part of the Forrestfield Airport Link project.
Key features of the Forrestfield North Residential Precinct proposal include medium-high density residential zonings from R60 to R100, new road connections, approximately 20 hectares of public open space and drainage reserve, a community hub and primary school.

Draft Local Structure Plan (now open for comment)
Past Consultation and Information
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.
