The opportunity to comment on the Yanchep and Two Rocks Local Area Plan closes on August 25.

BIG things are happening in Yanchep and Two Rocks, and the City of Wanneroo is calling on local residents to have their say on the future.

When the City of Wanneroo asked residents to name what made Yanchep and Two Rocks unique, as well as map out what the future of the area would look like, over 1200 people had their say through a range of methods.

An online mapping tool invited residents to leave comments and ideas; surveys were taken; and face-to-face conversations at nine facilitated engagement events saw local residents participate in shaping the Local Area Plan over a two-month period earlier this year.

As a result of this community consultation, the City has outlined six key themes in its Local Area Plan – from the need for more local businesses to better beach access.

Another key theme that emerged from the feedback provided was a desire to see future development and facilities blend with Yanchep and Two Rocks’ abundant natural surroundings.

To ensure the City has heard what the community had to say and “got things right”, the draft Yanchep Two Rocks Local Area Plan is now open for comment on the City’s website.

“We hope to receive feedback from as many local people as possible, so we can be sure that the Local Area Plan truly represents the community and their hopes for the future,” City of Wanneroo Mayor Roberts said.

“The importance of the plan reflecting what the community expressed cannot be underestimated.

“It’s your plan, so please have your say before the review period closes on 25 August.”

You can take a view at the Yanchep Two Rocks Local Area Plan on the City’s website – www.wanneroo.wa.gov.au/yancheptworocks – or by visiting the Yanchep Two Rocks, Wanneroo and Girrawheen libraries.

Feedback about the plans may be submitted online via Your Say, emailed to communityengagement@wanneroo.wa.gov.au, or posted to City of Wanneroo, Locked Bag 1, Wanneroo, WA 6946.
