    On 17 July 2020, the Metro-West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) refused the application for a mixed use development comprising of basement car parking, restaurants, offices, motor vehicle sales and 301 multiple dwellings at 97-105 Stirling Highway, Nedlands.

    The application was refused on 10 grounds, including:

    • Failing to meet the vision for a new activated and vibrant Nedlands Town Centre;
    • Creating an undesirable precedent for development;
    • A plot ratio that will result in excessive building bulk contrary to the amenity and orderly and proper planning of the new Nedlands Town Centre;
    • Creating a parking shortfall that will result in a spillover of cars searching for car parking spaces in surrounding residential streets;
    • Failing to satisfy the aims, and other provisions of the LPS3, including R-Codes Volume 2; and
    • Failing to adequately satisfy Clause 67 of Schedule 2 ‘Deemed Provisions’ of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015.

    The finalised minutes can be found on the DAP website.

    Should you have any queries, please contact the DAP Secretariat on 6551 9919 or via email daps@dplh.wa.gov.au
