Keralup formerly Amarillo Masterplan, Karnup (Bulletin 1281)

This report, published as Bulletin 1281, provides the Environmental Protection Authority's advice to the Minister for the Environment under section 16(e) of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 on the project by the Department of Housing and Works (DHW) to develop a new town site at Amarillo, a farming property in Karnup. Amarillo has subsequently been renamed Keralup.

The project covers 4000 hectares in the single ownership of the DHW and lies 17km south east of Rockingham and 10km north east of Mandurah. If developed, the area would become a fully integrated urban community housing up to 90 000 people.
