In relation to the reconfiguration of public open space, the developer is seeking to reduce the current public open space contribution from a 15.9% surplus to 12.09% - which remains in excess of the 10% Liveable Neighbourhoods requirement. The conditions of the EPBC Act approval require the developer to identify and implement an offsite offset for black cockatoos, limit the clearing of black cockatoo habitat trees, install artificial nesting hollows and implement revegetation within the site.

Submissions on the proposal should be lodged in writing to the City of Mandurah by 31st August 2020 via email to planning@mandurah.wa.gov.au.
