The Shire has been actively working with State Government to get the Kingston Drive Extension project approved and built in the past two years.
This local road project is in the control of the Shire of Harvey and we wish to correct the comment made by Member for Murray Wellington Robyn Clarke in the Harvey Reporter on 2 March that application to the amendment to the Greater Bunbury Region Scheme hadn’t been lodged.
The application was lodged on 22 December 2020, after the Shire sought independent legal advice confirming (despite previous advice from State Government) that the native title matters were no longer an issue.
We understand the frustration from the community and businesses as this is a vital infrastructure link to service the area and relieve traffic congestion and request State Government to progress this application.
Acknowledgement of Country
The Shire of Harvey acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
