Scheme Amendment | 7 and 9-15 Quarry Street, Fremantle

We have initiated a planning scheme amendment for the use and development of three lots on Quarry St, Fremantle.


The City of Fremantle is looking to dispose of three properties located at Lots 1, 2 and 8 Quarry Street, Fremantle (street numbers 7 and 9 – 15), and wishes to sell them as a combined site.

The sites have different zonings under the local planning scheme. Since 2018, the City has been exploring options on a potential scheme amendment to change this, so that all lots share a common zoning. This would allow them to be sold and redeveloped together in a coordinated way.

Currently, the lots are zoned a combination of low-density (R25) residential (Lot 8) and high-density (R-AC3) mixed-use (Lots 1 and 2). The table below outlines the current details of each lot:

What is proposed for the site?

At the Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 24 July 2019, a formal amendment to the planning scheme was initiated. This was subsequent to a 12 month period of preliminary engagement with the local community on a potential scheme amendment, which considered various future zoning options for the site.

The amendment proposes a zoning on the site of ‘Mixed Use’ with a residential density of R80 (i.e. medium density). This density is in between the current densities of the lots. In addition to the re-zoning, rules to control building design are proposed in the planning scheme text as well as a new local planning policy.

A summary of the key provisions proposed for this site as part of the new amendment is outlined in the following table. These have been prepared in response to the extensive community consultation that has been undertaken on the proposed amendment to-date. The map at the top of this page provides a visual guide to the information in the table below.
