WAPC approval of Cockburn Gateway expansion

The City of Cockburn's response to PerthNow Cockburn on 1 November 2021 about WA Planning Commission approval of the Cockburn Gateway expansion

Question: Would the City like to comment on the WAPC approval of the $1.08b expansion of Cockburn Gateway?
 The City of Cockburn welcomes news of the State Development Assessment Unit’s (SDAU) approval of Perron Group’s redevelopment of Cockburn Gateway Shopping City.
The City recommended to the SDAU that the proposal be approved and looks forward to the new Cockburn Quarter in what is further confirmation of Cockburn Central’s ongoing emergence as the capital of the Perth southern metropolitan region.
The $1b investment fits within the City’s strategic objectives to ensure Cockburn Central is a great place to live, work and either invest in a business or patronise a variety of top-quality retail services and offerings.
Cockburn Central has benefitted from significant City of Cockburn investment in recent years including Cockburn ARC and the Cockburn Health and Community Facility.
The State Government’s Armadale to North Lake Road bridge project is 95 per cent complete, and work on the METRONET Cockburn-Thornlie link continues to progress.
The Perron proposal follows Joint Development Assessment Panel approval of a $98.6 million mixed use proposal by Golden Estate Group in August 2020 for a 113-room hotel and 262 apartments in Cockburn Central West.
The WA Government also recently named Aventuur as its preferred proponent to deliver an $80m integrated surf park development in Jandakot.
