Key Activities 2019/2020

The focus for the 2019/2020 financial year is on consolidating Tamala Park Project as a significant urban project in Perth’s Northern Coast. This will be achieved through the construction and sale of lots within Catalina Central and at Catalina Beach and progression of planning for Catalina Grove.

The construction and development for FYE 2019/2020 reflects a conservative approach to sales/settlement rates and lot production consistent with the predicted soft conditions for new lot sales in Western Australia.   There will still be a significant program involving major planning, landscaping works, marketing and sales programs at Catalina.

Highlights of the Works program include:

  • Civil construction for 38 lots;
  • Significant landscape construction, in Central and Beach Precincts;
  • Continued Catalina branding and marketing;
  • 31 lot sales and 26 lot settlements;
  • Significant infrastructure Works, in Central and Beach Precincts.

The following is a summary of key activities at Catalina for 2019/2020 financial year.

Civil Construction

The following stages of civil construction works are to be undertaken:

  • Civil construction for 38 lots, Stage 26 (Beach Precinct);
  • Commencement of Stage 18B (Central Precinct), innovative housing precinct.

Infrastructure

There are a number of important Infrastructure works planned for construction in 2019/2020. 

The program includes the extension of Portofino Boulevard which will provide a closer link to the Catalina foreshore area.

The TPRC also proposes the construction of the Catalina Beach Access Road which has been endorsed by the City of Wanneroo and is now with the Western Australian Planning Commission for consideration.   The Catalina Beach Access Road will provide access to a safe beach for the local community.  Subject to obtaining the necessary approvals, it is anticipated that construction for the access road and facilities will commence in April 2020.

In June 2019 the TPRC agreed to make a substantial financial contribution to the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo towards the construction of the planned Burns Beach-Mindarie dual use path. The Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo are proposing that a 3.57km DUP be constructed between Burns Beach and Mindarie as the final link in a 58km regional coastal route connecting Fremantle and Quinns Rocks.  The construction of the Burns Beach-Mindarie DUP will likely provide significant community benefits to Catalina Estate residents and the broader community.  Construction of the Burns Beach-Mindarie dual use path commenced in July 2019 and is expected to be completed by December 2019.

Landscaping

Landscape works will continue to provide important recreation facilities and meeting places for the local community.  In addition, it will demonstrate the quality of the Catalina Project.

The following landscape works are proposed for the 2019/2020 financial year:

  • Portofino Promenade median/verge extension;
  • Foreshore area landscape;
  • Stage 17 verges; and
  • Stage 11 (balance of park).

Further rehabilitation and signage will be undertaken within both the southern and northern Biodiversity Conservation Area, located adjacent Marmion Avenue.

Sales and Marketing

The Sales and Marketing program will be aiming to achieve 31 residential lot sales and 26 lot settlements.

The Sales and Marketing initiatives will be focused on continued Catalina branding, in conjunction with the Catalina Beach Sales Office and the Catalina Beach Builders Display Village.

The Catalina Estate signage will be upgraded and refreshed.
