LPP 6.7 – Parking and Access

Planning and Development Act 2005

TOWN PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Local Planning Policy 6.7 - Parking and Access

The City’s requirements for parking associated with development are contained in Local Planning Policy 6.7 – ‘Parking and Access’. The City has conducted a review of this policy, with a particular emphasis on ensuring an appropriate amount of car parking is provided in the City’s Local Centres.

The review of Local Planning Policy 6.7 – ‘Parking and Access’ strikes a balance between encouraging and supporting small businesses while ensuring adequate car parking is provided that does not impact on surrounding areas.

Some other changes proposed to Local Planning Policy 6.7 include:

  • Allowing on-street parking to be included in parking assessment for land uses located in Local Centres
  • Amending the alfresco parking requirement so that an alfresco area up to 29m2 does not need to provide any more parking
  • Amending the requirements for ‘Educational Establishment’ to bring ratios in line with the Western Australian Local Government Association Guidelines 2015
  • Amending the requirements for ‘Hospital’ to include staff car parking
  • Amending the requirements for ‘Place of Worship’ to reflect a recent State Administrative Tribunal ruling
  • Amending the ‘Recreation Private’ parking requirement by introducing subcategories of ‘Gymnasium’ and ‘Class Studio’
  • Including a parking ratio for ‘Small Bar’ and grouping ‘Small Bar’ with similar land uses
  • A number of administrative changes are also recommended to provide clarity and to simplify the policy requirements.
