Client: Primewest Management
The primary tasks were:
- To prepare a Structure Plan and associated Local Planning Scheme Amendment to rezone the land for Industrial purposes;
- Prepare Design Guidelines, the purpose of which were to guide the future development of the land to ensure a high standard of development and suitable integration with nearby residential development;
- Obtain Subdivision Approvals in accordance with the endorsed Structure Plan and also obtain Subdivision Approvals which represented departures from the endorsed Structure Plan.
Involvement of Rowe Group was vital to the prompt lodgement and approval of the Structure Plan, Scheme Amendment and Design Guidelines. The relationship of this office with local authorities is second to none due to the previous employment and working relationships of the Rowe Group staff in the metropolitan region.
Accordingly we engaged an Arborist to investigate the value of the vegetation and, in particular, to identify the mature trees worthy of retention. This ultimately informed the extent of vegetation to be retained, which was incorporated into our Structure Plan design. This area was rezoned ‘Local Parks and Recreation’.
Our Client’s intent was to create a high quality Industrial Business Park and along with input from the City of Cockburn, Rowe Group prepared Design Guidelines to ensure the development of each individual allotment would be to a high standard.
The ultimate design provides for a variety of lot sizes to meet market demand.
