Satterley seeks to appeal decision to reject North Stoneville plans

Satterley Property group’s fight to develop North Stoneville is ongoing as he appeals the Western Australian Planning Commission's decision to reject the hills development.

The decision came as community concerns claimed the area would put 4000 people in the middle of an extreme bushfire zone. 

The Anglican Church, who own the land, engaged property developer Nigel Satterley to create a new townsite to accommodate 4000 residents, which was to include two schools and a local centre. 

Satterley said the decision, which concluded 10 months of rigorous assessment including extensive environmental and land use planning investigation, was “surprising and disappointing.”

"It is unfortunate the opportunity to begin construction of the first masterplanned community in the Perth Hills that will generate more than $550 million in economic activity and hundreds of jobs has been halted," Satterley said.

Satterley, however, has chosen to appeal the decision to the State Administrative Tribunal.

It is uncertain whether or not Planning Minister Rita Saffioti will ‘call-in’ Satterley’s appeal.
