City disappointed with JDAP recommendation for Yelo site

27 August 2021

The City of Stirling is bitterly disappointed with the decision by the Metro Inner-North Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) to recommend approval for the application for 331 West Coast Drive Trigg, also known as the Yelo site.
The JDAP today recommended approval for the amended plans for a mixed-use application, including residential and office space.
Mayor Mark Irwin addressed the JDAP today to reiterate the City of Stirling’s recommendation that JDAP refuse the application based on concerns around the excessive height, bulk and scale of the proposal not being compatible with the setting, as well as a lack of car parking.
“It is really disappointing that the independent panel has chosen to ignore City planners, the Council and the community by recommending this development be approved despite acknowledging issues with the plot ratio and height,” the Mayor said.
“In terms of built form, the development application is in line with R100 zoning right beside an R20 zoned area.
“In the past six months the City has processed more than 1000 development applications with only 0.05 per cent refused, clearly demonstrating we are in favour of sustainable developments that will contribute to a growing and diverse economy.”
A decision on the State Administrative Tribunal application for review is scheduled to be made at the State Administrative Tribunal on 10 September 2021.
