Amendment 77 - lots fronting Beach Road between Glendale Avenue and Erindale Road, Hamersley

Consultation has concluded

Planning and Development Act 2005

TOWN PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.77

Rezone House Numbers 60 and 62 Glendale Avenue, House Numbers 650 to 686 Beach Road, and House Number 264 Erindale Road, Hamersley (as shown on the map below) from 'Residential (R20)' to 'Special Use – Mixed Use and Residential (R-AC0)'

In July 2016 Council considered an application that had been submitted by a landowner in the area to rezone House Numbers 60 and 62 Glendale Avenue, House Numbers 650 to 686 Beach Road, and House Number 264 Erindale Road, Hamersley from 'Residential (R20)' to 'Special Use – Mixed Use and Residential (R-AC0)'.

The proposed rezoning if approved, would allow these properties to be developed with a mixture of commercial and residential uses in the one building for example, a building with office on the ground floor and residential apartments on the upper floors.

When Council considered the Scheme Amendment No.77, it decided not to proceed with it. This means that it was not publically advertised as it was not supported by Council.

Despite this decision, in November 2017, the Minister for Planning has ordered the City to proceed with Scheme Amendment No.77. The City has to comply with this order, even though Council did not support the proposal. A copy of the Minister's letter can be viewed in the document library. This means that the City has to advertise the Scheme Amendment for public comment, and Council will consider all of the submissions that are received when it the City's officers report on the outcomes of public advertising.

The Ministers order does not represent any formal support for the proposal, but indicates that, in the Minister's view, the proposed Scheme Amendment is worthy of consideration through the Local Planning Scheme Amendment process.

Scheme Amendment No.77 proposes specific design requirements that any future development must comply with, including:

Requiring new buildings 1-2 storeys in height to be setback a minimum of 6m from the side or rear boundary that is shared with residential zoned land

Requiring new buildings above 2 storeys in height to be setback a minimum of 9m from the side of rear boundary that is shared with residential zoned land

Providing a 2m wide landscaping strip along boundaries shared with residential zoned land

  • Ensuring that any new development only takes place on land that has a minimum size of 1500m² or two lots that have been amalgamated.
