A COMMUNITY meeting will be held in the western car park of the Corrimal Railway Station on Sunday (December 2) from 4pm.

The meeting has been called by the Corrimal Community Action Group to update locals about progress on the re-zoning and redevelopment of the old Corrimal Coke Works site, Railway Street. Corrimal.

The developer has received approval from the Department of Planning to put the re-zoning plans back before council with no changes to the original demand for over 700 new homes on the site.
They have, however, been required to revise their flood and ecological studies, their traffic impact study and contamination remediation plan. They also have to complete an Aboriginal cultural heritage study, and conservation management and geomorphological plans.
Corrimal Community Action Group are calling for a guarantee that the site will be decontaminated, that increased traffic issues are dealt with, environmental and flooding concerns addressed, plus safe pedestrian and cycleway access included before the re-zoning and development proceeds.
The meeting will provide an opportunity for people to suggest issues they want raised by a delegation that will meet with the owner and developer on Tuesday December 4.
