The BRG Committee thanks the many of you who responded so constructively to our first draft of the Vision for rural Jandakot and Treeby. None of the 84 rural residents north of Armadale we consulted say that they do not want the land rezoned.
We have used all of your comments in our final draft, (download here), that we hope that you will be able to support. Please let us know if you believe that your views have not been fully represented and we shall endeavour to make appropriate changes.
Despite repeated questioning by Councillors Chamonix Terblanche and Steve Portelli on your behalf, Cockburn officers have still not clarified what are their next steps in determining a Vision on behalf of rural residents. We are not confident that anything meaningful will be delivered by Cockburn officers by 6 September, which is the date set by a Council resolution of 8 June. We must not miss this opportunity to get a clear Vision in front of the WA Planning Commission and so we have had to prepare the Vision ourselves. We shall then have to press all Councillors to ensure that it is properly championed to the WA state government.
Please complete Cockburn's survey by 31 August using the guidance that has been emailed separately to all members.
