DevelopmentWA is proposing an exciting new project at Lot 912 Midland Road, Bushmead

We are proposing to develop the former Bushmead Rifle Range site into a diverse residential community that celebrates the site’s heritage and is sensitive to its surrounding bushland and semi-rural setting.

The 24 hectare site is located just 16km from the Perth CBD and a short distance from the town centres of Guildford, Midland and Kalamunda.

Its close proximity to employment at Midland, Forrestfield and Kewdale, coupled with easy access to Perth Airport, the Perth Hills and the future Forrestfield railway station makes Lot 912 an ideal location for a range of housing choices designed to complement the site's surroundings.

What's happening now

The Metropolitan Region Scheme amendment was approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission on 17 November 2020. Please visit the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage for more details. The City of Swan has commenced the process to bring the Local Planning Scheme No. 17 to conformity with the MRS Urban zone.

Engaging with the community

We recently asked the community what they value in the area through our Community Values Survey. The survey was open from 29 May to 5 July 2020. We have considered community feedback and will take this through to the next phase of the project.

We know the community will be interested in our plans for Lot 912, and we will include opportunities for input as we undertake more detailed planning for the site. We invite you to register to keep updated on the project.
