Question Without Notice No. 1057 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 September 2019 by Hon Donna Faragher

Minister responding: Hon B.S. Wyatt
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

SWAN DISTRICT HOSPITAL SITE

1057. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the minister representing the Minister for Lands:

I refer to the former Swan District Hospital site and the answer provided to question without notice 1344 asked on 6 December 2018.

(1) Has the government lodged an application with the city to commence the rezoning of the site; and, if not, why not?

(2) If yes to (1), when was the application lodged and what is the requested rezoning of the site?

(3) Has the government finalised its investigation into whether an opportunity exists to make part of the site available to the adjoining college; and, if yes, what is the outcome of this investigation?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following answer has been provided on behalf of the Minister for Lands. I know this was asked last month, so I am not sure that the answer will make a difference.

(1) Yes.

(2) The application was lodged on 17 April 2019 for the site to be rezoned from public purpose hospital to special use, residential R60, private clubs and institutions and public open space.

(3) Yes. A contract has been entered into with La Salle College to acquire a portion of the site. The land will transfer subject to rezoning. The portion of the Swan District Hospital that will be transferred to La Salle College will be used to construct student accommodation to provide the opportunity for Aboriginal students from the Kimberley to attend the college.
