To address these concerns, the Western Australian  Planning Commission, in collaboration with the Cities of Gosnells and Armadale and key stakeholders, has prepared the Southern River/Forrestdale/Brookdale/Wungong District Structure Plan. This structure plan was published on 11 August 2021 by the WA Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage.
