The Town of Mosman Park has appointed a panel of experts to assist with the assessment of complex development applications and planning matters with the aim of improving the Town’s built form into the future.
In September 2019, expressions of interest were sought from experts in the fields of architecture, urban/sustainable design, planning, landscape architecture and heritage conservation to join the Town’s first Design Review Panel.
The Town is delighted to announce Andrew Howe, Tony Blackwell, Marion Fredrickson, Munira Mackay, Rachel Pleasant and Stuart Neal have been appointed.
Chief Executive Officer of the Town of Mosman Park, Carissa Bywater, expressed her appreciation to the Design Review Panel members for their commitment to helping the Town’s Regulatory and Planning Services team by bringing their expertise and specialist knowledge to bear on applications the Town receives.
“It will be extremely valuable for us to be able to draw upon the specialist knowledge of these experts to assess large scale and complex development applications, in a way that is in keeping with the latest thinking and best practice in design, architecture, conservation and heritage,”
Ms Bywater said.
She explained Local Planning Scheme #3 had delivered a plethora of potential opportunities for development in the Town, both in terms of commercial and residential areas, and already exciting proposals were coming on stream.
“We are delighted to be able to draw upon the expertise of the Panel members to ensure the best possible built form outcome for the Town and as we plan for its future, and we look forward to working with them to deliver this,” Ms Bywater said.
The Design Review Panel will be convened on an as-needed basis beginning in 2020.
A State hazard plan has been launched to help locals cope with the heatwave sweeping over Perth.
WA’s Department of Health said it had activated the plan based on forecast temperatures for the Perth area.
Chief health officer Dr Andrew Robertson said some people were particularly vulnerable during hot stretches.
“The elderly, babies and those with chronic diseases are more prone to heat stress than most people,” he said.
People who work outside, or are not used to the heat, are often at higher risk of developing heat stroke.
Anyone heading to outdoor events can also be at risk.
Heat stress symptoms may range from mild to severe, and can include rashes, cramps, headaches, nausea and excessive or inadequate sweating. It can also exacerbate existing health conditions.
Anyone who experiences severe symptoms such as a high body temperature, nausea, a rapid heart rate and dry, red, hot skin should seek urgent medical advice.
