Riverlea Code Amendment
Walker Corporation has recently commenced the construction of the first stages of the master planned community at Buckland Park, referred to as Riverlea. At the time planning policies were established for the development of Buckland Park, an allocation of approximately 60 hectares was made for the principal centre, which was then known as the District Centre and is now known as the Suburban Activity Centre. Since the policies were established there has been substantial change in retailing and service delivery, which has reduced the demand for land to accommodate these uses and a rationalisation of the boundaries of the Suburban Activity Centre Zone is appropriate.
The Walker Corporation now propose to develop portion of the land on the northern side of Riverlea Boulevard (the principal access), that is located within the Suburban Activity Centre Zone for residential purposes. The Suburban Activity Centre Zone would be decreased in size and be located on the southern side of Riverlea Boulevard. The proposed Suburban Activity Centre Zone will have an area of approximately 42 hectares and will continue to facilitate a wide range of retail, commercial, service and employment opportunities to support the developing Riverlea community.
This Code Amendment entitled the “Buckland Park Suburban Activity Centre Zone Code Amendment” has been prepared by the Walker Corporation (the Designated Entity) to alter the zoning of the land within the Suburban Activity Centre Zone and is now available for community feedback.
