Media Release July 14
It has been 12 months today since the WA Planning Commission rejected proposed North $toneville. It was refused largely on the basis that $atterley did not convince the Commission that the proposal meets the intent and objectives of State Planning Policy 3.7 Planning in Bushfire Prone Areas. 1 year on and $atterley pushes on with appealing that decision through mediation at the State Administrative Tribunal, despite the worst Perth Hills bushfire in living memory (Feb 2021). In the meantime, Save Perth Hills has gone back to the WA Planning Commission seeking to have the land zoned back to rural. A decision is still pending but we are encouraged by the precautionary approach of the WAPC pending further advice.
