Nedlands Town Centre Precinct Plan - Help us create a Vision

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A draft Precinct Plan has been developed to create a Town Centre for Nedlands from Smyth Road to the Peace Memorial Rose Gardens, with the heart of the centre being in the vicinity of Dalkeith Road to Stanley Street, both sides of the Stirling Highway.

The precinct plan will help the City define what might be expected for a Town Centre. It aims to ensure new buildings complement each other as well as neighbouring residences in adjoining streets. It addresses movement of people and vehicles, land use activity, buildings and infrastructure.

The draft Nedlands Town Centre Precinct Plan has been developed following a pre-consultation process involving key stakeholders (including Council). This can be accessed via the Document Library.

Engagement with the broader community has been undertaken from 14 March to 4 April 2020. The City has also engaged external consultants to undertake built form and traffic modelling to test the provisions of the draft precinct plan. The outcomes of this modelling, together with submissions received during the advertising period, will be used to create a revised precinct plan for the Town Centre.

The City wants to develop a Town Centre that will be a destination of choice for the City of Nedlands and for that reason it is imperative that we work together to achieve this very important initiative for the City as a whole.

    As Florence Rd is the proposed middle point of the proposed town centre, why, to the east, does the Town Heart not extend to Webster ST, and the Town Core not extend to Smyth Rd? This would make the town centre more symmetric in the west-east direction and make the Florence Rd be the true middle point. Also such an arrangement would make the town centre more legible to the east of the town centre. Note that legibility is not an issue to the west of the proposed town centre: the land is relatively flat; it is adjacent to the Peace Memorial Garden to the south; to the north there is the proposed 16-20 storeys Town Core. As new traffic lights are planned for the crossings of Stirling Highway at Stanley ST and Smyth Rd, why not make the following street sections to be "Activated Frontages": Stanley ST close to Stirling highway, Stirling highway to the north between Kinninmont AV and Smyth Rd, and Stirling highway to the south between Stanley ST and Webster ST. This will make the relevant street sections safer and more vibrant (to fully utilize the foot traffic). To the south east corner, why not extend the Community Zone to Thomas ST?

    Thank you for your query, David.

    The City is currently undertaking further work in preparation for community consultation. Advertising of the draft precinct plan, and the further information produced as part of this additional work, is expected to commence in early 2020. You are encouraged to provide your comments as a submission during the advertising period.

    This page has been updated to reflect the new stages and timeframes, including an update to the FAQ.s

    Kind Regards.
