We're seeking comment on a draft local planning policy for Burt Street, Fremantle.


In November 2015, the Minister for Planning approved an amendment to Fremantle's local planning scheme for an area of Burt Street, Fremantle, as shown in the image above.

Amendment 57 has established the primary planning requirements for the Burt Street site, including the zoning, building height and density requirements.

The design objectives and criteria in the draft Burt Street Local Planning Policy are intended to add further detail that is complementary to these controls.

The policy aims to promote high quality design outcomes and ensure new development integrates with the surrounding area. Under the draft policy, all future development proposals would be expected to satisfy the following design elements:

  • Development context
  • Site works
  • Architectural expression, articulation and dwelling design
  • Buildings on corners
  • Roof forms
  • Car parking and vehicle access
  • Building services
  • Building façade and frontages
  • Open space, communal open space and deep soil areas
  • Tree retention
  • Public domain interfaces

How can I comment?

The draft planning policy is available for public comment until 27 March. We encourage you to take a look and:

  • Let us know if you have a question by emailing planning@fremantle.wa.gov.au
  • Attend the community information session on 14 March 2017. We'll be available to provide further information and answer questions.
  • Send us your feedback online or on the submission form by 27 March 2017.
