Challenges faced

This project generated interest from all levels of the local authority – both Councillors and Council staff at the highest level. The use itself is not listed in the Councils Scheme so every aspect had to be considered in a unique way. It involved a wide range of challenges to enable it to fit into the special environment of the Swan Valley, which has its own separate Planning legislation, and considerable co-operation of the Agencies involved.
