Potential Scheme Amendment: 7 and 9-15 Quarry Street, Fremantle

The City of Fremantle is considering a potential planning scheme amendment for the use and development of several properties on Quarry Street.


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 consolidated site.

The sites have different zonings under the local planning scheme, however the City is considering a potential scheme amendment to change this so they share a common zoning and can be sold and redeveloped together in a coordinated way.

Council has sought feedback from the community on a potential scheme amendment for the site and is now working toward initiating a formal scheme amendment.

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).


How can I find more?

Further information on the potential scheme amendment can be found in the Relevant Information section on the right-hand side of this page.

A hard copy of this information is also available on request.
