DevelopmentWA (formerly MRA) will begin the process to extend the Midland Redevelopment Area to include the immediate areas around the Bayswater and Forrestfield train stations, to be known as the METRONET East Redevelopment Area .
In the Bayswater and Forrestfield areas, the State Government has invested in transformative infrastructure to act as a catalyst for future growth. The non-contiguous METRONET East Redevelopment Area will help capitalise on this investment by enabling an integrated approach to areas around the stations to create connected community centres that are universally accessible and provide a range of housing, jobs and services.
DevelopmentWA will determine the intended place and development outcomes, establish a planning framework to guide future development and manage built form outcomes through the assessment and determination of development applications.
As part of the process, consultation will take place with the City of Bayswater and City of Kalamunda.
It is expected the statutory process will take around 12 months, with Planning Control Areas in place in the interim, governed by the West Australian Planning Commission, to ensure compatible developments complement the infrastructure projects.
