Beware of fake planning scheme flyer, says City

The City of Nedlands has been made aware of a fake flyer circulating in parts of Mt Claremont that contains false information about proposed changes to draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3.

The incorrect details relate to possible modifications to residential densities, commonly referred to as R-Codes.

City of Nedlands CEO Greg Trevaskis said it was important people accessed the correct information and not rely on unauthorised flyers.

“To be clear, draft LPS3 proposes an increase in density from R10 to R20 in some parts of Mt Claremont with no change to the existing maximum height permitted,” he said.

“The flyer naturally does not identify those responsible and it’s obvious people want to make mischief, rather than rely on truth and accuracy.

“We’re giving people every opportunity to have their say by having a four-month consultation period and using numerous methods to ensure they gain the information they need to know.

“Whether it’s letters to residents, online information, advertising, community open days or even talking to the planners themselves, the City is committed to keeping the community informed in a fair and open manner.”

The public comment period on draft LPS3 is open until 5pm, 29 March 2018.
