    I presume a building of this height is allowed on a major thoroughfare, Stirling Hwy, then tapering back in height as you move further away off the highway. This development is some distance, about half a block, back off the highway and overlooking the Peace Memorial Rose Gardens, a listed heritage site. How can this be?

    Under LPS3 the land zoned is Residential with a density code of R160 - a high density code.Under the Residential Design Codes, the Acceptable Outcome for this residential density code is 5 storeys.

    Kind regards.

    Re: lots 17-19 Louise street (and the other lots around the park zoned R160). A) What was the zoning on these lots in the scheme amendment that was originally proposed to WAPC by the council? B) what was the zoning for these lots proposed by WAPC when it came back from them? C) How did these lots end up zoned R160?

    Hi Emma,

    The original proposal prepared by Administration in 2016, was for Mixed Residential which had special control provisions apply, A copy of the superseded Scheme is provided in the link below:

    https://www.nedlands.wa.gov.au/sites/default/files/2016%20Special%20Council%20Meeting%20Attachment%20-%20DRAFT%20Local%20Planning%20Scheme%20No.3.pdf

    The WAPC then made modifications and made it R160, which was then advertised in 2017 and later approved in April 2019.

    I trust this answers your query.

    Kind Regards,
    Josh

    Hi How many storeys is there to this bldg, the drawing appears to show five storeys?

    Effie asked 6 months ago

    For most elevations, the development is for five-six storeys. However, one small corner of the development there are technically seven storeys. This technicality is likely to be remedied by the applicant.

    Re: Louise Street. Is this development compliant with all aspects of the r-code guidelines? (Including parking, set backs, minimum room size, and bulk and scale) If no, which aspects are the developer seeking concession from? Has the developer applied for seniors/55 + concessions? Thanks Emma

    Emma2 asked 6 months ago

    The City won’t complete the full assessment of the proposal until after the conclusion of advertising and comments received from the Architect peer review.

    The City will be able to better respond to question regarding the built form at the Community Consultation Session.
