What is the City's Role?

The City of Nedlands is a referral party only, whose purpose is to provide technical advice and recommendations to the Joint Development Advisory Panel (JDAP). 

The JDAP will determine the outcome of the application.

How will the application impact car parking and traffic?

The development application proposes the removal of 22 car parking bays and the provision of 27 new car parking bays. This results in a net increase of only 4 car parking bays. This complies with the car parking requirements of the City’s Town Planning Scheme No. 2 and the Hollywood Hospital Master Plan. 

The small increase in car parking is considered not to have impact on the existing traffic of the local road network. 

How will the parking of vehicles and general storage be managed during the construction phase if the application is approved by JDAP?

If the development application is approved by JDAP, it will be recommended that a construction management plan be prepared by the applicant. 

The City will be monitoring the compliance of the construction management plan.
