City takes action on Moorpark Ave access issues

Published Friday, 10th June 2016

The City of Wanneroo is taking action to address access issues for residents of Moorpark Avenue, Yanchep.

At a special meeting on Tuesday, Council authorised the City of Wanneroo’s Chief Executive Officer to undertake negotiations with land developers regarding a number of vacant land parcels on Moorpark Avenue.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the decision would kick start a process to provide certainty over the future use of the land.

“Subdivision of this area in the mid to late 1970s left vacant land parcels which were originally planned to be used as access roads. More recent proposals by the land developer to create residential lots from the vacant land parcels have prompted a need to review the situation regarding access,” she said. 

“The City is now taking action with a view to resolving this matter in the interests of all parties involved.”

Council officers will now initiate negotiations with land developers Primewest and Yanchep Beach Joint Venture regarding four vacant land parcels between:
  • 47 and 51 Moorpark Avenue
  • 59 and 61 Moorpark Avenue
  • 65 and 67 Moorpark Avenue; and 
  • 85 and 89 Moorpark Avenue.
Council has also clarified that no further action will be taken relating to other land parcels in Moorpark Avenue.

Mayor Roberts said the City would work with the land developers to negotiate appropriate outcomes for the above vacant land parcels.

“Negotiations will commence immediately and once in-principle agreement is reached between the developers and the City’s officers, proposals will be presented to a future Council meeting for consideration,” she said.

“Moorpark Avenue residents will continue to be kept informed throughout the process and will be advised when this matter comes back to Council.”
