An application has been received to amend the abovementioned development (DAP/19/01570) which was approved by the Midwest/Wheatbelt Joint Development Assessment Panel on 10 June 2019.

  • Container and tank structures added adjacent to incoming driveway.
  • Rearrangement of various minor structures on-site due to design development.
  • Overall building footprint has been reduced.
  • Maximum height of the building has remained unchanged, although the plant roof pitch has been amended.
  • Vehicle hardstand configuration has been modified to suit improved operational flows and reduce travel distances on site.
  • The Nutrient and Irrigation Management Plan (NIMP) has been revised to include:
  • Additional information on site specific groundwater monitoring;
  • Wastewater disposal irrigation area reduced due to lesser nutrient concentrations in the waste water;
  • Groundwater quality and level monitoring to be included in the annual monitoring programme.

Proposed Development Application: Agriculture Intensive (Annual and Perennial Horticulture) Retrospective Development Application: Agriculture Intensive (Annual Horticulture) and Associated Structures at Lot 1 (115) Rig Road, Red Gully

 The Shire of Gingin has received an application to use and/or develop land for the above purpose and public comments are invited:

The overall development consists of two components with relevant details outlined below.

Retrospective Development:

  • The property contains two (2) existing pivot irrigation systems which are rotated over three sites for the purposes of potato farming which falls under the land use Agriculture Intensive (annual). 
  • Each pivot uses 16.2 hectares of land and as such a total of 48.6 hectares is dedicated to the existing potato operation, albeit with only 32.4 hectares being used at any one time.
  • Existing structures associated with the development include eight sea containers, a transportable lunch (crib) room and a transportable dwelling.

Proposed Development:

  • The proposed development seeks to expand the area dedicated for potato farming from the existing 48.6 hectares to 145.8 hectares. The landowner advises that only two pivots will be operational at any one time (32.4 hectares).
  • In addition to the above, the development also seeks to use 23 hectares of land for an orchard which falls under the land use Agriculture Intensive (perennial).
  • The proposed orchard is intended to be setback ~50 metres from the side (western) boundary.

 Plans and documents setting out and explaining the proposal can be viewed at the links below, or alternatively at the Shire of Gingin’s Administration Office, 7 Brockman Street, Gingin or Lancelin Office, Vins Way, Lancelin.
