Local Structure Plan support Forrestfield North District
To accompany the submission of a strategic level Local Structure Plan for the Forrestfield North District, in Perth, WA, our land development team were appointed by Element to design, lead and deliver all environmental aspects of this project which included:
- technical assessment of the environmental values of the project site
- design and implementation of all aspects of the hydrological investigations and management strategies.
- development approval strategy, including engagement with all relevant stakeholders, specifically, Department of Environment and Energy (DEE), Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, Office of the EPA
- development of MRS amendment documentation (Environmental Assessment Report) demonstrating an approach whereby the key environmental values would be considered, with an opportunity for significant levels of protection through the Local Structure Plan stage.
The objective of "advice only" from the EPA was achieved.
The Local Structure Plan process actively engaged stakeholders including community groups, Aboriginal stakeholders and Agencies to ensure that the LSP outcome achieved an appropriate balance between development, social and environmental objectives.
