The Forrestfield/High Wycombe Industrial Area includes 69 land parcels held in various public and private ownership and generally bounded by Roe Highway, Berkshire Road, Milner Road and Sultana Road West. BackgroundThe Forrestfield/High Wycombe development area is located within the City of Kalamunda and is generally bound by Sultana Road West to the north, Roe Highway to the east, Berkshire Road to the south and Milner Road to the west. The area is now being developed under the Industrial Development zone, in accordance with the adopted Structure Plan, taking into consideration the Design Guidelines for the area.
The Structure Plan is intended to primarily facilitate the development of logistics and transport-based industries that can take advantage of the location of the land and its proximal relationship with key transport infrastructure.
The proposed industrial development of the precinct necessitates the provision of infrastructure upgrades in theform of new road connections, upgrades to existing roads to accommodate heavy vehicle movements and therelocation of service infrastructure. These infrastructure upgrades are considered to benefit all landowners and necessitated by the planned industrial redevelopment of the precinct; as such a Development Contribution Plan was prepared under the provisions of the Shire’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3 to equitably share the costs of infrastructure upgrades amongst landowners.
Development Contribution PlanThe Development Contribution Plan (DCP) outlines the costs of infrastructure within the development contribution area and sets the rate payable by developers who will contribute to the delivery of infrastructure. The DCP is administered through Schedule 12 of the Local Planning Scheme No.3.
On 25 February 2020, the Council considered and adopted the DCP Report and Cost Contribution rate proposed at $23/m² for the purposes of public advertising. The following was also established:
