Metropolitan Region Scheme amendment 1382/57 - Kenwick Rail Freight Facility - Railways Reservation

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) for land in the City of Gosnells.

The amendment proposes to transfer approximately 17.8 hectares of land in the Maddington Kenwick Strategic Employment Area (MKSEA) from the Industrial zone to the Railways reservation in the MRS. 

The amendment area is in the City of Gosnells, about 12 kilometres south-east of the Perth Central Business District in the locality of Kenwick.

The WAPC certifies that, in its opinion, the proposed amendment does not constitute a substantial alteration to the MRS.
