Scheme Amendment No. 11 – Additional Built Form Requirements

In response to the recent application for development approval for a residential aged care facility within the City of Nedlands, the City was prompted to review its current Local Planning Scheme No.3 and Local Planning Policy provisions relating to non-residential developments within the Residential Zoned areas throughout the City.

In July 2020, the Council resolved to initiate a Local Planning Scheme Amendment to Clause 32, to add an additional subclause, Subclause 32.7 for Residential Zoned land. The purpose of this amendment is to provide additional built form requirements for non-residential developments where they are proposed in the Residential Zone.

What does this mean to you?

A Scheme Amendment involves many steps, including referral of the Scheme Amendment documentation to external agencies such as the Environmental Protection Authority for comment. Once the City is in receipt of these comments, the Scheme Amendment is formally advertised and comment from the general public is sought to help inform and shape the finalisation of the Scheme Amendment.
