Mr Kobelke was appointed in August 2017 to independently review the planning framework for the Swan Valley. He met with more than 50 Swan Valley community stakeholders and various agencies in one-on-one consultations and oversaw a survey of Swan Valley landowners and residents which received 628 responses.
The recommendations detailed in Mr Kobelke’s report extend beyond the planning portfolio to focus on potential measures to protect and promote the Swan Valley as a unique place for viticulture and tourism.
Comments received on the report will inform the Minister for Planning’s resolution of land use planning in the Swan Valley region.
