Scheme Amendment: Nos. 2 - 8 Harvest Road, North Fremantle

The City is considering a planning scheme amendment to allow for a mixture of local services and new residential development on Harvest Road, North Fremantle.


The amendment to the Local Planning Scheme would involve changing the zoning of Nos. 2 - 8 Harvest Road, North Fremantle, from 'Residential' to 'Mixed Use'. In addition, the creation of a laneway to the rear of the lots would be necessary to allow for formalised vehicle access to the lots.


The proposed change in zoning to 'Mixed Use' would allow a wider range of commercial uses at these lots, alongside medium-density (R60) residential dwellings. These residential dwellings would most likely take the form of ‘apartments’ or ‘town-houses’. Any change to the zoning of these lots would also require Council to introduce special development requirements to control the design of new buildings.


The map below provides an overview of the potential changes, with the proposed new 'Mixed Use' zone highlighted in pink and the new laneway outlined in yellow.
