Amendment 101 - 7 & 9 Field Street, Mount Lawley

Consultation has concluded

Planning and Development Act 2005

TOWN PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.101

Rezoning House Numbers 7 and 9, Field Street, Mount Lawley

The City previously advertised Scheme Amendment No.101, which dealt with the rezoning of House Numbers 7 and 9, Field Street, Mount Lawley from ‘Public Use Reserve (Hospital)’ to 'Special Use (S35) - Residential (R20)’, from 6 February 2018 to 20 March 2018.

Council, at its meeting on 17 April 2018, considered the outcomes of advertising of the Scheme Amendment, and resolved to adopt the Scheme Amendment (Council Resolution 0418/022).

The ‘Special Use’ zoning was to enable conditions relating to tree retention, vehicular access and lot area requirements to apply when the area was redeveloped.

The Minister for Planning is responsible for determining Scheme Amendments, and Council’s decision to adopt the Scheme Amendment was forwarded to the Department for Planning on the 7 May 2018 for it to assess, and to make a recommendation the Scheme Amendment.

Typically, the Department for Planning makes a recommendation to the Statutory Planning Committee of the Western Australian Planning Commission on Local Government Scheme Amendments when the Department for Planning disagrees with the recommendation of the Local Government.

The City’s officers were given an indication that the Department for Planning supported a R60 zoning for the sites (with additional site requirements), the City’s officers attended the Statutory Planning Committee meeting on 14 August 2018 and argued that an R20 zoning was the appropriate zoning for the land.

Despite this, On 3 September 2018, the City was advised that the Minister for Planning required the Scheme Amendment to be advertised in a modified form to:

(a) rezone the subject site to ‘Residential (R60) and Additional Requirements (AR2)’

(b) require the preparation of a Local Development Plan for the subject site prior to development (which will guide how the site will be developed. The Local Development Plan will be advertised separately at some time in the future, if Scheme Amendment No.101 is approved by the Minister for Planning)

(c) introduce requirements for a tree protection area for the eastern portion of the subject site, and for vehicle access to come from Masel Land or Memorial Lane.

A copy of the Ministers letter can be located in the Document Library.

The Scheme Amendment adopted by Council would have permitted six single or grouped dwellings to be built at the site.

The modified Scheme Amendment would allow multiple dwellings (apartments) to be built as well as single or grouped dwellings. The Residential R60 zoning would potentially allow a greater number of dwellings to be built.

If the site is rezoned as advertised, development on the site would need to comply with the R-Codes, the requirements of the City’s Heritage Protection Area and the Local Development Plan which will need to be prepared prior to development taking place.

The instruction to rezone the land to ‘Residential (R60) and Additional Requirements (AR2)’ represents a substantial modification to the Scheme Amendment that was previously advertised. For this reason, the Minister for Planning has instructed the City to advertise the modifications to Scheme Amendment No.101.

Where can I find out more information about the amendment?

More information about why the City is intending to rezone this land can be found in the Council report which can be viewed here or by downloading the file in the document library.

The Scheme Amendment document details the changes to the Local Planning Scheme No.3 that the City is proposing which can be viewed here or by downloading the file in the document library.
