Perry Lakes Stadium Redevelopment
On 1 December 2005 the West Australian Parliament passed the Perry Lakes Stadium Redevelopment Act 2005.
Under the Act, the Perry Lakes Stadium site and Ak Reserve were resumed from the Town of Cambridge and the State Government will undertake the development of both the sporting facilities and residential land development. The Town will receive the net proceeds, balance of land (if not fully developed) or a combination of both, the value of which is estimated at least at $50 million once the development is completed. The receipt of these proceeds will be a number of years away. The actual proceeds returned to the Town may exceed this amount, however this won't be known until the development has been completed.
The Town also received $1.7 million in compensation for Ak Reserve within six months of the resumption day.
Other provisions in the legislation provide for sustainability measures for both the land development and sporting facilities. The Town won't have any planning or building powers with respect to the development other than being consulted on the proposals for the developments.
Although the Act was passed in December 2005, the resumption didn't take immediate effect. The Minister for Planning made a recommendation concerning the resumption day to the Governor. The Governor, Dr. Ken Michael, proclaimed the resumption day and published a notice in the Government Gazette on Friday, 3 February 2006 in accordance with Section 4(1) of the Perry Lakes Redevelopment Act effecting the resumption of the land. The Town no longer owned the land from this date.
The Town will continue to manage Perry Lakes Stadium under a service agreement with the Government including a cost recovery arrangement until the site is required for development works to commence.
Progress on the development can be viewed by visiting the Perry Lakes website.
