Public Consultation: Proposed Land Rationalisation – Maslin Street, Capel

Residents in Maslin Street, Harris Street and Roe Road are being encouraged to have their say about the rationalisation of a poorly located recreation reserve and an existing Shire-owned residential lot via land exchange and boundary realignment.

Reserve 37646 and Lot 19 are situated between Maslin Street and Roe Road. The reserve currently has no road frontage and is surrounded by residential zoned land.  Lot 19 is an unusually shaped residential lot with dual road frontage, being a residue of land remaining following subdivision of the locality.

The proposal to rationalise Reserve 37646 and Lot 19 Maslin Street will create a new Reserve(for Recreation) with a management order in the Shire of Capel and a residential lot (see sketch below). This will create an opportunity to sell the lot and utilize that money to develop a small Public Open Space and Playground on the new reserve. It should be noted that at this stage, no designs have been developed for the Public Open Space and Playground. This is a suggestion only.

The current area of Reserve 37646 is 1,320m2 while the area of the new Reserve would be 1443m2 and the new residential Lot 179 would have an area of over 1,400m2.

The proposal is considered a more efficient and effective use of the available land resources and will result in more useable and accessible local park for the community as well as a more regular-shaped and useable residential lot.

The next stage in this process will be for the Council to adopt the proposal prior to subdivision application to Western Australian Planning Commission.

The Shire would appreciate any comments you may have and please return them into the Shire office or email to by Friday 30 June 2017.
