To support new development and the operation of the future Redcliffe Train Station, the area needs needs new infrastructure which includes:
- The realignment of the Southern Main Drain
- Public open space areas
- New road connections and upgrades to the existing local road networks
- Capacity upgrades to the existing water, sewer and gas infrastructure
- Underground power
It is anticipated that the City of Belmont and State Government agencies will be responsible for delivering infrastructure within the precinct. Some of the infrastructure will be funded by contributions paid when landowners undertake development. This is known as a Development Contribution Plan.
A Development Contribution Plan (DCP) allows the costs of infrastructure to be shared between developing landowners within the precinct. Under a DCP, landowners need to make a financial contribution towards infrastructure when completing a subdivision and/or development.
With so many different land owners in the precincts, no single developer can be reasonably expected to fund and deliver infrastructure. The timing of development also depends on the intentions of individual landowners, so funding and delivery would be difficult to synchronise.
If you are a landowner, you would only need to make a contribution under the Development Contribution Plan when undertaking subdivision and/or development.
The draft Activity Centre Plan outlines priorities for the delivery of infrastructure in the precinct.
- Landscape public open space around Redcliffe Train Station;
- Construct a roundabout at the intersection of Second Street and Boulder Avenue at the entrance of the Park and Ride facility supporting Redcliffe Train Station;
- Deliver road connections surrounding Redcliffe Train Station, including a connection between Central Avenue and Bulong Avenue and Bulong Avenue and Second Street.
- Realign and transform the Southern Main Drain into an urban stream;
- Realign services and utilities in the former Brearley Avenue road reserve;
- Deliver and landscape the central area of public open space within the former Brearley Avenue road reserve;
- Deliver a road connection between Kanowna Avenue and Boulder Street.
- Upgrade local roads and undertake streetscape improvements;
- Deliver underground power;
- Upgrade existing water, sewer and gas infrastructure.
- Investigate and deliver additional areas of public open space.
The Southern Main Drain is an open-channel regional drain which carries water from Kalamunda to the Swan River. It sits next to Brearley Avenue between Kanowna Avenue East and Central Avenue.
It is proposed that this drain be realigned and reconfigured into a living urban stream, as part of a central area of public open space.
