DALYELLUP DISTRICT CENTRE DETAILED AREA PLAN
A Draft of the Dalyellup District Centre Detailed Area Plan No 1 has been prepared for the area bounded by Norton Promenade, Tiffany Centre and the proposed Main Street. It includes provision to allow for the approval of Take Away Food Outlets with drive through facilities on nominated sites. The current planning standard for take away food outlets in the Dalyellup District Centre does not allow for drive through facilities and the land developer has requested that this be modified.
Persons wishing to make comment on the draft plan should do so in writing prior to 4.00pm on 5 December 2014. Please address you submission to the Chief Executive Officer, Shire of Capel, PO Box 369, Capel WA 6271.
