MORE parking bays and an extra 2500 dwellings could be on the cards for Osborne Park after Stirling council approved a development plan for the precinct.
Stirling is hoping to meet the state government target of 60,400 additional dwellings in the city by 2050.
The Osborne Park precinct surrounds King Edward Road and borders Westfield Innaloo.
One submission suggested the council should allow showrooms and warehouses in the precinct.
“If showrooms and warehouses were permitted then the area would lose the ability to accommodate these new residential dwellings,” said Stirling city planning manager Fraser Henderson.
The first development scheduled is the sub-precinct around Sarich Court, dependent on road upgrades.
