The Local Planning Strategy has now been endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission. The final version of the Local Planning Strategy is available in the Document Library now and is also available for public inspection at the City’s Administration building. We would like to thank everyone for their participation and interest in the development of this document.
Council at its Special Council Meeting of 13 December 2016 considered draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3. At this meeting, the Council resolved to adopt the draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3 with a number of modifications.
The agenda, attachment and minutes can be viewed on the minutes and agendas page on the City's website.
The agenda contains the officers report. The attachment is the Scheme document itself and the minutes explain the modifications made by Council. Please note that the Scheme document must be read with the modifications.
The draft Scheme and modifications will now be submitted to the Western Australian Planning Commission for approval to advertise the document to the community.
Following the completion of the Local Planning Strategy and its submission to the Western Australian Planning Commission, the City has now commenced the preparation of the new Local Planning Scheme No.3.
The Council have been attending a series of workshops to finalise the details of the new Local Planning Scheme 3.
The scheme provides details as to how the Council will implement the Local Planning Strategy.
The Scheme includes detailed information about how the Council will accommodate the State mandated additional 4,400 residential dwellings within Nedlands which is to be accommodated along Stirling Highway, Hampden Road and Broadway as well as in the redevelopment of the old Shenton Park Hospital site, while preserving the unique spacious and leafy character of the City.
Once Council has formally considered and refined the draft Scheme, it will submit it to the Western Australian Planning Commission for approval to advertise and to seek public comment in 2017.
The Council at a Special Meeting on 16 August 2016, adopted the Local Planning Strategy for forwarding to the Western Australian Planning Commission for endorsement. Further information will be provided as the approval process proceeds.
All submissions and responses to the Local Planning Strategy have now been reviewed and considered. As a result modifications to the document have been recommended to Council.
The recommendations have been referred to the Committee meeting of Council for its deliberation on Tuesday 9 August 2016. This item will then be tabled at a Special Council meeting onTuesday 16 August 2016 for final determination.
