WAPC (Western Australian Planning Commission) Proposal 1310/41 is a Land Grab that will see more than 300 homes and 59 businesses on Guildford Rd severely affected or destroyed.
If you want to stop the proposed plan 1310/41 from going ahead, you MUST lodge a submission.
There are two ways to have your say on the MRS amendment – one is to sign a petition, and the other is to make a submission to the WAPC. Although signing a petition is a valuable contribution, the petition does not form part of the planning process for the amendment (it is a political tool, not a planning tool).
Putting in a submission on the proposed amendment means that the WAPC must consider your reasons for opposing the amendment. It also means that the government must publicly provide written arguments as to why opposition to the amendment is not relevant or is not significant enough to stop the amendment proceeding. If they are not able to do that , then the amendment cannot proceed. This is the best chance for all members of the community to have their say, and make sure that the government knows that we oppose the amendment. The more people that make submissions, the more notice the WAPC must take of our objections.
When you make a submission, you will also have the option of speaking at, or being represented at, a hearing of the WAPC. This provides you with the opportunity to directly express your concerns to the WAPC. If you wish to be represented at the hearings by Guildford Road to Ruin, please fill out the final page of the submission as follows:
✔ YES, I wish to speak at the hearings
I will be represented by:
✔ A spokesperson
Then enter the following details:
Name of spokesperson: Graeme Reany

Postal address: PO Box 954, Mount Lawley WA 6929
I would prefer my hearing be conducted in:
