Federal Environmental Assessment Update
The Emu Point Preliminary Documentation and Response to public submissions is available for review.
Federal environmental approval for the clearing of remnant vegetation on the site has been assessed by the Department of Sustainability, Environment Water Population and Communities (SEWPaC).
Outline Development Plan Update
The Outline Development Plan (ODP) sets a new standard in environmentally sensitive residential development for coastal areas in WA. Plans for apartments and single residential houses on the 34ha site aim to have minimal impact on the surrounding natural environment with large areas of natural bushland being retained to provide an important system of linked nature reserves and wildlife corridors.
The Outline Development Plan follows extensive consultation with the local community and residents, whose feedback on the initial concept plan released in late 2010 has helped to shape the proposed development.
The range of environmental studies and community consultation undertaken is outlined below.
