Davis Park Precinct Structure Plan, Beaconsfield

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


A local structure plan to guide the redevelopment of the Davis Park Precinct in Beaconsfield has been submitted, and we invite your comments as part of the City’s assessment.


The purpose of this plan is to guide the future redevelopment of the precinct to support new residential and commercial development. The precinct is bounded by South Street (north), Fifth Avenue (east), Lefroy Road (south) and Caesar Street (west) as indicated in the graphic above, and is focused around Davis Park which is located centrally to existing development. The Davis Park precinct also falls within the area of the City’s draft Heart of Beaconsfield Master Plan.


Key aspects of the proposed structure plan include:

  • A mostly residential precinct, with provision for different types of housing to be developed.
  • A ‘Mixed Use’ zone along South Street, with provision for retail floor space up to 4,600sqm, as an expansion of the existing Beaconsfield commercial centre to the east.
  • A new access road off South Street, with a new signalised intersection proposed.
  • Expanded public open space at Davis Park, the centre of the precinct.
  • A public access way (pedestrian 'green link') through the southern portion of the precinct to provide access between Davis Park, Doig Place and Lefroy Road.
  • The existing educational establishment (childcare) to remain.

The Davis Park precinct is located within the City’s draft Heart of Beaconsfield Master Plan area, and this structure plan forms a key part of implementing this important ongoing strategic project.



For further information:

  • We encourage you to view the full structure plan document, as well as supporting information submitted with the application, available from the document library on this page.
  • In addition, a summarised information pack is available to view which contains further information on this proposal.
  • Read the frequently asked questions section on this page.
  • For further queries feel free to contact the City's Strategic Planning Department by phoning 9432 9999 or emailing planning@fremantle.wa.gov.au


All comments received during the consultation period will be reported to Council, who will make a recommendation to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) on whether or not to support the structure plan. The WAPC is the determining authority for all structure plans.

    Council considered the structure plan at its meeting held on 27 May 2020 and resolved to forward it to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) with a recommendation for approval, subject to a number of modifications. These modifications include reducing the retail floor space of the commercial precinct, providing minimum dwelling targets and reclassifying the proposed Mixed Use zone to a Local Centre zone, among other matters.

    The structure plan has now been referred to the WAPC, which will make the final decision on it. This page will be updated with the latest information once we receive notification of the determination.

    The minutes from the above-mentioned Council meeting have been published on the Agendas and Minutes page of the City's website. They are also available to download from the Document Library on this page.

    At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 29 April 2020, Council deferred making a decision on the Davis Park Structure Plan to the next appropriate Ordinary Meeting of Council. This was done to allow time for the City to hold a workshop involving elected members and officers to consider in more detail the key aspects of the proposal, prior to Council resolving its formal recommendation on the structure plan to the Western Australian Planning Commission.

    Further details on the next Council meeting will be made available on this page as soon as they are available.

    The City is currently waiting on additional information to be submitted by the proponent, to enable us to complete our assessment of the structure plan.

    This information most notably relates to the proposed signalised intersection on South Street, as well as the accompanying retail sustainability analysis (RSA) document relating to the proposed commercial precinct. The City is also awaiting a formal referral response from Main Roads in relation to the traffic signals.

    Once this information is submitted the City will complete its assessment of the structure plan and prepare a detailed report for consideration of Council and recommendation to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).

    At this stage, it is anticipated that a report on the structure plan will be presented to Council at the beginning of next year.

    Any queries on the progress of this project in the meantime can be directed to the City's Strategic Planning department.
