Amendment 104 - Various lots surrounding Servite College, Tuart Hill

Consultation has concluded

Planning and Development Act 2005

TOWN PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.104

Rezoning of various lots surrounding Servite College, Tuart Hill from 'Residential (R30) to 'Private Institution' and creating a Special Control Area for the Servite College Area

In May this year, Council considered a change to the zoning of 12 lots surrounding the Servite College Campus from ‘Residential (R30)’ to ‘Private Institution’.

This change would support the expansion of Servite College in an orderly and proper manner while protecting the amenity of the surrounding residential area.

Although these lots are currently zoned ‘Residential (R30)’, they are used by the college for non-residential land uses, including car parking, storage and office space. The rezoning of these lots to ‘Private Institution’ will ensure a zoning that reflects the land use is put in place.

Scheme Amendment No.104 also proposes to create the ‘Servite College Special Control Area’ on land that is owned or used by the Servite College, and also land around the College that is used for other non-residential purposes, such as St Kieran's Church and Primary School and St Brigids Convent.

The Special Control Area contains a number of objectives that will be used when considering development applications on land within the proposed Special Control Area. The Special Control Area will also contain a requirement for a Local Development Plan to be prepared if additional classrooms, additional floor space, or development higher than a single storey is proposed.

A Local Development Plan will set out specific and detailed requirements for a future development to achieve better built form outcomes on the lots within the Scheme Amendment area. It will also ensure that any development on the Servite College site occurs in an orderly and proper fashion, and in a way that does not impact on the amenity of surrounding properties.

Should a Local Development Plan be submitted for land in the Special Control Area, this would be advertised for public comment. Although both Council and the Western Australian Planning Commission have to agree that a Local Development Plan is required for the ‘purposes of orderly and proper planning’, the Council decides whether to approve, modify or refuse the Local Development Plan.
