Quattro Community Residents Association Inc (Queens Park), is hosting a public forum this Wednesday night.
Quattro, a fast-growing, incorporated group of residents, has been concerned about the seeming lack of accountability in the planning process for some time.
Their experience, with a Dept of Housing (DoH) project that nearly tripled in size without their awareness, is particularly relevant.
DoH will likely hold sway over a lot of new housing to be built in Canning, and does not need Council approval, as it is deemed public works.
Further, it doesn’t appear to be subject to the scrutiny of newer processes like Developer Assessment Panels.
The Western Suburbs of Perth have been battling planning issues for some time, and are here to share their experience with the residents of Canning at Quattro’s invitation.
The impact of planning laws and the issues of rezoning on our community
