Plans set for Mandurah’s biggest church

A 3-hectare block on Lakes Road, Greenfields, could become a new 1500-square-metre Kingdomcity church, if approved by the South-West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP).

The proposed double-storey christian church would include an auditorium capable of accommodating 500 fellows, an activity space for up to 200 children and parking facilities for 179 cars.

It would also feature a multifunction foyer, an alfresco area, a kitchen, offices and a stage.

Kingdomcity’s application to build a place for public worship in the block was approved by the City of Mandurah in 2012.

However, the plans are currently advertised for public comment before a report is sent to the South-West JDAP for final approval.

Kingdomcity was created by Mark Varughese in Kuala Lumpur in 2006 before extending to Perth, Phnom Penh, Singapore, Gaborone and Dubai.

Mandurah currently has a Kingdomcity church in town located on Mandurah Terrace.

City residents are now able to have a say about the proposal before the public comment period closes on June 5.

Submissions have to be sent in writing to the City of Mandurah or can be emailed to planning@mandurah.wa.gov.au.

To discuss the proposal contact the City’s Planning Services to arrange an appointment with an officer on 9550 3748 or via planning@mandurah.wa.gov.au.
