At the general meeting of 10 September, members reflected on the loss of rural amenity in Jandakot and Treeby and what the implications might be for Banjup south of Armadale Road. We noted that urbanization is pressing on Banjup on all sides and we could be white anted by developers until not much of our rural amenity is left.
Banjup residents could embrace urbanization and actively seek rezoning or we could actively protect our rural amenity. Your Committee is seeking all members’ views on this matter over the coming months so that we can determine a consensus with which the BRG can move forward. A thread on the BRG Facebook facilitates that discussion.
Alternatively, please add your thoughts to this page. Thanks.
You can download the presentation materials from the 10 September meeting here. Go to page 38 to see the slides on Banjup amenity. The alternative motions on pages 48 and 49 were not put to the meeting. They were shown only to focus residents’ minds on the crux of the questions before us.
Note that your Committee has adopted no position on this matter. We seek only to facilitate debate.
