  • Final Council Decision - August 2018

    11 months ago

    At its meeting 22 August 2018, Council resolved to not support the proposed amendment. Council's full decision was as follows:

    1. In accordance with Regulation 41 (3) c of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, Council resolve not to support Amendment 68 to Local Planning Scheme No. 4 due to the traffic constraints affecting the area and the apparent absence of landowner interest in pursuing improvements to the road network to address these.

    2. In accordance with Regulation 44 of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, the Amendment 68 to Local Planning Scheme No....

    2. In accordance with Regulation 44 of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, the Amendment 68 to Local Planning Scheme No. 4 documentation, including Council’s resolution not to approve the amendment, be forwarded to the Western Australian Planning Commission for a recommendation to the Minister.

    3. That the CEO inform landowners in the scheme amendment area that notwithstanding points 1 and 2 above, Council maintains the view that in the longer term the optimum planning outcome for this area would be redevelopment as a high density mixed use/residential precinct. If at a future date landowners in the area demonstrate to the City a stronger commitment to participating in arrangements to jointly fund and implement road network improvements needed to support such development, the Council would be willing to consider commencing a fresh planning process to facilitate such a redevelopment outcome.


    Further background information behind Council's decision can be found within the August 2018 Council Minutes.

    The amendment has since been forwarded to the Western Australian Planning Commission for final assessment and a decision by the Minister for Planning. This page will be updated once the City receives formal notification of the Minister's decision.

  • City to hold talks with landowners before readvertising

    by Admin, about 2 years ago

    Council agreed to defer consideration of Amendment 68. Before proceeding to readvertise modifications to the scheme amendment, the City will hold further discussions with landowners in the area to see if they are prepared to support arrangements to improve the road network, which may allow higher density development to be permitted through the scheme amendment.

  • Draft scheme amendement before Council in June

    by Admin, about 2 years ago


    The draft scheme amendment for Brockman Place will be considered by the Planning Committee on Wednesday 7 June and Council on 28 June at 6.00 pm in the Fremantle Council Chamber.

    Officers have recommended that council support significant modifications to the amendment. These changes are a result of submissions and relate predominantly to the traffic challenges within the area that cannot be simply resolved in the amendments current form. Under the local planning schemes regulations the changes will need to be readvertised before being presented back to council.

    The report and officer's recommendation is available on the agendas and minutes page.

    Anyone can attend the meeting to ask a question, make a statement or simply observe. Find out how to get to the Fremantle Council Chamber and register for question time on the Council and committee meetings page.

  • Amendment 68 is available for comment till 6 March

    by Admin, over 2 years ago

    The amendment applies to properties located on Hampton Road and Brockman Place, South Fremantle, as shown on the above plan.

    The proposed amendment will modify provisions in Fremantle's Local Planning Scheme for density, height, setbacks, vehicle access and land use for properties within the scheme amendment area. Additional development standards proposed for the area will enable landowners to be awarded increased density and height.

    Read the proposed amendment

    A summary of the current provisions in the scheme and proposed changes include:

    • Density could be increased to enable more housing diversity in the area with additional requirements for setbacks, land uses , minimum site area, access and parking. If a proposal did not meet the development standards the density bonus would not be approved.
    • An increased height bonus is proposed and would allow for heights of 15 metres, 17.5 metres or 24.5 metres or approximately 5 - 9 storeys. Increased height can only be approved where the additional development requirements are met by landowners, in the same way bonus density is achieved. If a proposal did not meet the development standards the extra height would not be allowed.
    • A minimum setback of 15 metres to Hampton Road for all new buildings. This safeguards future opportunities for public transport options and is consistent with the nearby development on Strang Street. A maximum setback of 3 metres would apply to Brockman Place.
    • No residential use on the ground floor on Hampton Road would be allowed.
    • Sites over 4000 square metres would be eligible for higher residential density and greater height. For sites smaller than 4000 square metres, density would be lower and height would be limited to 17.5 metres.
    • In order to develop at the higher density bonus there will be a requirement to gain access via an alternative road to Hampton Road, such as Brockman Place.
    • A requirement that car parking spaces be located to the rear or below ground is proposed.

    Further explanation of the proposed changes are outlined in this information sheet.

    The draft scheme amendment is available for public comment until 6 March.
