I was pleased to take up the fight for infill sewerage, along with local community members. I joined Simone McGurk MLA, Minister for Water and Rita Saffioti MLA, Minister for Planning for the announcement of the Cook Labor Government’s $55 million investment in strategic water and wastewater infrastructure.
The program will be delivered by the Water Corporation to support the creation of more diverse, affordable housing in areas marked for new or higher density development, including Kenwick.
Development precincts in Kenwick and Maddington will benefit from connections to reticulated wastewater infrastructure, with works at Kenwick to commence first.
Special Development Contribution Areas will be created to ensure state investment is recouped fairly and equitably from future developers who benefit from planned upgrades.
