The State Government is committed to building a new station at Karnup and will continue to pursue investment opportunities with the Federal Government.
With a potential future station at Karnup, there is an opportunity to provide complementary transport, housing, and recreation choices within the station precinct.
To support this change, precinct structure planning is underway to establish the planning framework that will guide development of the area so the precinct is ready when an investment decision on the construction of the station has been made.
The plan will be prepared in consultation with local government and key stakeholders to set out the vision for the area around the future station, including detail on how the future station and precinct development will be integrated.
There will be opportunities for community to input into what the precinct around the station should look like as the planning progresses, and the draft plan will be released for public comment in mid-2022, before being finalised with consideration from the feedback.
For more information as the precinct structure plan progresses, register for updates.
The Noongar place name for Karnup is Karnup (Karn-up) and the narrative is ‘place of the Milkmaids flowers’.
