SCARBOROUGH REDEVELOPMENT REACHES A NEW MILESTONE

The $60m redevelopment of Scarborough has reached another milestone with planning control handed over from the City of Stirling to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA).

Planning Minister John Day said the State Government and the City of Stirling shared a clear vision for the iconic destination and the transfer of planning control was a significant milestone in building the future of Scarborough.

“While current planning provisions will apply, the MRA will have regard for the future vision in determining development applications until a new planning framework is developed,” Mr Day said.

“Community members will have another opportunity to have their say when the draft master plan is released in the coming months after nearly 3,000 people put forward their ideas for Scarborough’s future via the recent Scarborough Views survey.”

Scarborough’s revitalisation is being delivered with $30 million from the State Government and $27.4 million from the City of Stirling. A draft master plan will be released for public comment in the coming months. A final master plan is expected to be finalised by late 2014 and will inform development of a new planning framework.
