Local Development Plan - No. 119 Hope Street, White Gum Valley

The City of Fremantle has received an application for a Local Development Plan (LDP) at No. 119 (Lot 200) Hope Street, White Gum Valley.


This plan has been submitted for assessment in response to Amendment No. 75 to the City’s Local Planning Scheme, which has recently received final approval from the Minister for Planning. The City previously undertook consultation on the scheme amendment between September and November 2018. This amendment provides the ability for development to occur on the site at a 'bonus' residential density of R60, subject to satisfying certain design criteria and approval of a Local Development Plan (LDP). Further information on Amendment No. 75 can be found on My Say Freo.

An LDP is a planning document that is prepared prior to formal submission of a planning application for a site. LDPs provide special design criteria for a specific site or area to allow for future development to occur.

In summary, the submitted LDP shows the following:

  • Maximum building height of 2 storeys;
  • Front, side and rear building setbacks from all lot boundaries;
  • The ability for development of both grouped dwellings (i.e. townhouses) and multiple dwellings (i.e. apartments) on the site;
  • One-way vehicle access through the site, entering via Wongan Avenue (east) and exiting via Hope Street (north);
  • On-site carport and parking locations for residents of the development;
  • On-street visitor car parking via the installation of new parallel parking bays on Hope Street;
  • Indicative courtyard and landscaping locations within the site;
  • Front and rear fencing styles and locations; and
  • Other development standards to be in accordance with the provisions of Scheme Amendment No. 75.

Where can I see the plan?

The submitted plan is available to download in the document library located on the right-hand side of this page or can be viewed during business hours at the City's customer service desk located at Fremantle Oval, 70 Parry Street, Fremantle.

How can I find out more?
