DevelopmentWA's key role in Latitude 32 is to complete structure planning to enable development to proceed. DevelopmentWA has finalised structure planning for Development Areas 1, 2, 3.

As Latitude 32 will play a significant role in the Westport Port and Environs Strategy, planning for Development Areas 4 and 5 will now form part of the strategy.

DevelopmentWA is now investigating how it can develop its landholdings within Development Area 6 to continue to supply land beyond Flinders Precinct and to also activate the surrounding landowners.

Shared infrastructure will be provided through the appropriate service agency as well as the Developer Contribution Plan. Individual infrastructure required to service your land will be a development cost to the landowner.

Development is nearing completion within Flinders Precinct.

DevelopmentWA is expected to commence sand and limestone extraction within Development Area 3 in late 2019 and work on Development Area 6 in 2020, with further development across the 1400ha taking place subject to demand.

These roads are classified as Primary Regional Roads under the control of Main Roads. There is no direct access from individual lots, however there is anticipated to be access via future Latitude 32 roads such as the North South District Distributor Road to Russell and Rowley Roads.

Please refer to Section 159 within the Planning and Development Act 2005. In line with the act, if a landowner on an adjoining road to your development wishes to develop their property after you they must contribute to the original cost of establishing the road.
