The rezoning of more than 260 hectares of land between Ellenbrook and Brabham has been approved which will facilitate future housing along the proposed METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line.
The land in Henley Brook - surrounded by Lord Street, Gnangara Road and Park Street - has been rezoned from Rural to Urban in the Metropolitan Region Scheme. This amendment represents the next stage in the urbanisation of the Swan Urban Growth Corridor, in keeping with the North-East Sub-regional Planning Framework. It will facilitate further planning to enable the future development of the area for residential and related purposes, consolidating the north-east metropolitan urban footprint
The transfer of the amendment area to urban will not prevent existing landowners from continuing to use their properties for current purposes, but will provide planning certainty for those who wish to further develop their properties in the future.
Further community input will be sought during the next stage, which will involve the preparation of a local structure plan. More information can be found at the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage online.
