The land known as the Glencoe property is located within the Shire of Gingin approximately 16 kilometres west of Gingin on the Gingin Brook Road and totals 1,526 hectares of Rural zoned land. The property comprises 12 separate locations ranging in size from approximately 16 hectares to 1,103 hectares. While three of the existing southern locations have gazetted and constructed road frontage, the balance of the locations do not have frontage to a dedicated road system. Also, the proponent considers the seven locations in the north-eastern sector are not ideally suited for more intensive agricultural or horticultural purposes.
The proposed amalgamation and re-subdivision seeks to relocate the boundaries so that eleven smaller lots for intensive agriculture would be located in the south-west of the site which is serviced by roads, and considered by the proponent to contain soils suited for intensive horticuitural purposes, and one lot for broadacre farming. The proposed southern lots have been designed to provide 8 to 10 hectares of irrigated crop land, and would be marketed and sold for horticultural use.
