Have your say on Kelvin Road development

Published on Tuesday 12 May, 2020

City of Gosnells residents are being invited to have their say about the types of recreational activities they would like included in the development of public open space in Orange Grove.

The City is planning to develop its remediated waste site and old trotting track on Kelvin Road to include public open space, rural residential lots and a new Operations Centre.

Mayor David Goode said the 29 hectares set aside for public open space is almost certain to include horse trails, which were included in the concept plan previously adopted by Council.  

“This is your chance to help us to ensure we are delivering a project that will best suit the residents who will be using the amenities,” he said.

A further 12 hectares is proposed to be developed for rural housing lots, with a potentially environmentally sensitive area set aside for protection.

The City’s proposed new Operations Centre will include a green space buffer around its perimeter and accommodate an administration office, rapid waste transfer station, animal pound, workshops, vehicle impound yard and other trade infrastructure.

The consultation period closes on Thursday 28 May and outcomes will be shared with the community.

 “The final design will take into account feedback received, which is why I encourage residents to head to the Your Say Gosnells online consultation hub, where you can learn  more about the proposed project and submit your comments,” Mayor Goode said.

It is anticipated initial site works will start late 2020, pending the development application process.
