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.

Before formally initiating and advertising a change to the planning scheme, Council would like preliminary feedback from the community.

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 proposal involves extending the mixed-use zoning already applicable to Lot 1 and 2 to include Lot 8, with uniform medium-high density (R100) residential coding applied to all three lots.

Under the proposal, building height would be limited to 7.5 metres next to existing residential properties to the north and east of the amendment area.
