Modified Illareen Structure Plan Available for Public Comment

Public comment is invited on the modifications to the Structure Plan for Lots 51 and 2979 Illareen Road and Lots 50 and 51 Kojonup-Katanning Road, Katanning.

The Structure Plan (ref: SPN/2199) provides the framework and guidelines for future subdivision and development of the western portion of Rural Residential Area 3, between Prosser Road and Illareen Road.

The previous version of the Structure plan was considered by the Council in October 2018. As a result of agency advice, submissions and discrepancies within the document, the Council requested further information together with sixteen modifications, prior to re-advertising.  The modified document was submitted on 4 July 2019. It was accepted and approved for advertising by the Council on 30 July.

The main changes in the current draft of SPN/2199 include:

  • Revised road alignments and intersections
  • Wider road reserves adjacent to the creek to accommodate multi-use trail
  • Short cul-de-sac on southern boundary to provide access to three larger lots.
  • Extended creek line protection areas
  • Updated provisions and text to clarify issues relating to water mains connection, on-site effluent disposal requirements and implementation of fire safety measures.
  • Minimum front setbacks for lots fronting Illareen Road increased from 15m to 5m.

The entire document, including the four Technical Appendices can be viewed using the links below, or at the front counter of the Shire Administration Office, 52 Austral Terrace, Katanning.

Submissions may be lodged in writing with the undersigned at PO Box 130, Katanning 6317 on or before Thursday 12 September 2019.
