Development Application - 80 Stirling Highway, Nedlands (Captain Stirling)

Consultation has concluded

SUBMISSIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR THIS APPLICATION

The City is seeking comments on a proposal for a shopping centre at 80 Stirling Highway, Nedlands. You can make a submission through the link below.

Background

The original application was deferred for 90 days at the 29 June 2020 JDAP Meeting for the following reasons:

  • To provide greater certainty on the traffic, transport and access issues;
  • To provide further information on heritage issues
  • To address the integration of the project in the Nedlands Town Centre

Please see the Minutes here: DAPs agendas and minutes - Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (dplh.wa.gov.au)

Rather than continue through the JDAP process, the applicant subsequently lodged a review at the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT). The issues identified above were considered through a series of confidential SAT mediations since 2020. Amended plans have now been submitted for the City to consider. Please note that there are proposed changes to access to Stirling Highway as detailed below.

The Proposal

The City of Nedlands has received amended plans for a shopping centre. Note that the proposal includes the amalgamation of several lots being: 80 Stirling Highway (Captain Stirling), 2,4 and 6 Florence Road, and 7 and 9 Stanley Street. The proposal includes:

  • Changes to Stirling Highway and nearby roads to prohibit right turns out of Stanley Street onto Stirling Highway, and make the Florence Road/Stirling Highway and Boronia Avenue/Stirling Highway intersections left in/left out only.
  • Shop (Supermarket)
  • Shop (Specialty store(s))
  • Medical Centre
  • Restaurant/Cafe
  • Liquor store - small
  • Recreation - Private (Gym)
  • 7 x Offices
  • Works to the existing Captain Stirling Hotel
  • Publicly accessible laneway at the rear (south) of the site
  • Demolition of four existing houses
  • Plans are included showing a residential component. These plans are indicative only and used to demonstrate that multiple dwellings could be added at a later date. They do not form part of the current application and would be subject to a separate planning application.

Because the application was last assessed by the City over two years ago, it is being treated as a new application for the purposes of advertising. The methods of advertising are in accordance with the City’s Local Planning Policy – Consultation of Planning Proposals.

To discuss the proposal with City Officers during business hours you may contact the City’s Urban Planning Team on (08) 9273 3500 or email planning@nedlands.wa.gov.au.

Additionally, a City Officer will be available afterhours to review plans and discuss the proposal in the City’s Council Chambers on 23 November 2022 at designated times between 4 and 6pm, by appointment only.

SUBMISSION PERIOD ENDS: 9 December 2022
