Scheme Amendment - Captain Stirling Hotel and 5 adjacent residential lots

Consultation has concluded

A complex scheme amendment (No. 212) is currently being advertised which proposes to rezone the following lots from a Hotel and Residential R10 zone to a Special Use zone. These lots relate to No. 80 Stirling Highway (Captain Stirling Hotel), and houses located at No. 2, 4, 6 in Florence Road and No. 7 and 9 in Stanley Street, Nedlands.

The Amendment is being sought to facilitate redevelopment of the site for retail, commercial, and residential purposes including retention of the Hotel and provision of a Woolworths supermarket.


It is also proposed that Schedule V of the planning scheme be amended to a Special Use Zone to include permitted uses and relevant development provisions. See document library (Scheme Amendment Text) for further information.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • Hi Following the proposed rezoning of the site what is the resulting maximum possible floor area allowances and associated car parking requirements for the whole 1.2ha site? I assume the city has intensification / plot ratio considerations in the proposal? What I'm looking for is something like: Maximum Retail Floor Space = X sqm and X car bays required Maximum Hotel Floor Space = X sqm and X car bays required Maximum Commercial Floor Space = X sqm and X car bays required Maximum Residential Floor Space = X sqm and X car bays required Cheers Adam

    Thank you for your question. The total car parking requirements for the development site will ultimately depend on the land uses which are proposed, and the total area they are proposed to occupy. 

    The Scheme amendment provides for a range of land uses to be considered on the site and proposes car parking ratios applicable to a number of these uses. It is noted that car parking requirements are based on the particular land use e.g. restaurant, office, shop etc. and are not split into broader commercial or retail categories. 

    The total car parking requirements applicable to the site therefore won’t be able to determined until detailed plans are provided as part of the Development Application process.

    The proposed Scheme provisions (including the proposed car parking requirements) relating to the proposed Special Use zone can be accessed in the document library titled City of Nedlands – Scheme Amendment

    The Scheme amendment does not propose any provisions relating to maximum plot ratio for buildings. The Scheme amendment does however propose the following provision ‘The City reserves the right to request a Local Development Plan or Development Framework for any redevelopment, substantial addition, change of use or modification, as the City deems necessary’. 

    It is possible for plot ratio requirements to be considered as part of this process when more detailed planning can be undertaken for the site.

    In considering the proposed Scheme Amendment and the submissions received, the City will determine whether the proposed Scheme provisions provide sufficient certainty for the redevelopment of the site as part of the Scheme Amendment process or whether more detailed requirements are required.
