Road Closure Not Supported

Road Closure Not Supported
29 Mar 2023

Shire of Harvey Council have decided not to support the closure of a section of Victoria Road reserve.

Shire of Harvey Council have decided not to support the closure of a section of Victoria Road reserve. 

The decision was made at the Tuesday, 28 March Ordinary Council Meeting.

Previously, Council received a proposal to amalgamate land within the Victoria Road reserve into Lot 204 on the south side of the reserve. 

This would require the permanent closure of a section of the road reserve. 

A notice was placed in the Harvey-Waroona Reporter on Tuesday, 10 January 2023 and South Western Times on Thursday, 12 January 2023 to advise the community of this proposal.

Notice was also provided on the Shire of Harvey website and to all public utility providers.

In response, Water Corporation advised a DN200 Water Distribution Main was located in the Victoria Road reserve, which is an integral piece of infrastructure that supports water supply security for Brunswick Junction.

Water Corporation shared a closure of the road reserve would have an adverse impact on their ability to service and maintain this infrastructure.

Because of this, Council decided not to support the road reserve closure. 

At the Ordinary Council Meeting, Council agreed to:

  • 1. Note the comments received during the 35 day advertising period for the proposed closure of a portion of Victoria Road Reserve.
     
  • 2. Advise the applicant that the closure of a portion of Victoria Road Reserve is not supported due to an objection raised by the Water Corporation regarding an existing asset in the Road Reserve which includes key infrastructure servicing Brunswick townsite.
