Plans have progressed to complete the extension of Kingston Drive, Australind and staff have submitted documentation to proceed with the next stage of development.
The Department Planning Lands and Heritage (DPLH) has initiated an amendment to the Greater Bunbury Region Scheme (GBRS) to facilitate the completion of Kingston Drive between Paris Road and Ditchingham Place, Australind.
This amendment has been referred to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for consideration of environmental factors relevant to this proposal.
Shire Officers are in discussion with the EPA and are providing all relevant environmental reports.
Shire of Harvey President Paul Gillett said previous issues such as the land tenure and native title had been resolved and this portion of Kingston Drive is required as part the local traffic management associated with Bunbury Outer Ring Road (BORR) proposal.
“The Shire has been in discussion with the Alliance appointed to construct the BORR in regard to including the construction of this roadway as part of the BORR proposal,” Cr Gillett said.
“Staff have been working tirelessly to progress this portion of Kingston Drive and look forward to it finally being constructed in the near future.”
