Nedlands Town Centre Precinct Plan - Help us create a Vision

Over the coming months, the City will be progressing the development of the Nedlands Town Centre Plan Local Planning Policy (Nedlands Town Centre Plan).  

The Nedlands Town Centre Plan will establish the statutory and strategic planning framework, as well as the associated vision, for the Nedlands Town Centre.  

Built form modelling is currently being undertaken to test different development scenarios within the Nedlands Town Centre. The next step in the project is for the outcomes of the built form modelling to be communicated to the community located in the Nedlands Town Centre, so that key stakeholders can help shape the development of the Nedlands Town Centre Plan.

  • Question in relation to draft Nedlands Town Centre Precinct Plan: what exactly are the amendments made by Council 23 June 2020? The link " Niche - Town Centre Nedlands Precinct Plan Council Amended 23 June 2020.pdf" opens a document with a Date 29/10/2019. I could not find any tracked changes so i don't know what the amendments are. .

    Hi Max,

    When Administration suggests changes to a policy or local planning instrument, a final ‘clean’ version is provided to Council as well as a ‘tracked change’ copy  for council’s consideration

    We do no advertise tracked change versions of policies. The changes were not recommended by Administration, thus there is no policy with the original provisions included.

    The changes to the policy relate to:

    Council Resolution
    That Council: 

    1. approves the removal of all references to a plot ratio of 6 in the unendorsed “Nedlands Town Centre, Precinct Plan” Replace this ratios with 3 in the Table on page 20, plot ratio in column headed “Precinct 2- town core”; 
    2. approves the ‘Community Benefit Measures” height allowances be reduced from 25% to 10% (being 2% per objective); and 
    3. advertises the proposed change to the Nedlands Town Centre Precinct Plan.


    Any further queries, please feel free to email council@nedlands.wa.gov.au or call 9273 3500 and chat with the Planning Team. 

  • 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?
