Question Without Notice No. 463 asked in the Legislative Council on 13 June 2018 by Hon Tim Clifford

Minister responding: Hon R. Saffioti
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 13 June 2018


463. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:

I refer the minister to the Midland Oval redevelopment project that is scheduled to begin preliminary construction activities this week.

(1) Is the minister aware that the Padbury triangle—an area located on a busy traffic island on Great Eastern Highway—is listed as a public open space offset by the City of Swan as per the Liveable Neighbourhoods policy?

(2) If yes to (1), will the minister clarify whether this is in line with the definition of public open space within the department's policies?

(3) If no to (1), will the minister make inquiries about the validity and rigour of the City of Swan's planning to ensure that it meets the requirements of all relevant policies designed to ensure that the Midland community is able to access safe and liveable spaces?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

I think the ending might be slightly different from mine, but I will provide the answer I have.

(1)–(3) The minister understands the member's interest in this matter, and has also heard the general concerns from members of the community. In relation to specific questions about the Padbury triangle, the minister will seek further advice.
