Amendment 118 - Walter Road West Precinct

Open
The City is proposing changes to the planning framework to deliver Rights of Way and accessways when former industrial land in Dianella is developed in accordance with the approved Local Development Plan. Closing date: 25 March 2021 Follow project

In October 2018, there were changes to zoning of land in the Dianella Industrial Precinct (the area bounded by Elsegood Street and Walter Road, including lots south-west of Harold Street and north-east of Cleveland Street). These changes aimed to transform the precinct from an industrial area into a mixed-use, landscaped area with predominately residential uses.

When the zoning changed, the City had to prepare and adopt a Local Development Plan to achieve the vision for the area. A Local Development Plan guides development and deals with matters such as building heights and setbacks. The plan also identifies where new vehicle and pedestrian accessways should be provided in this area.

This plan was developed in conjunction with the community following a series of community workshops in 2018, and was approved by Council on 23 June 2020.

To ensure that landowners provide vehicle and pedestrian accessways when the land is developed, the City’s Local Planning Scheme No.3 must be amended because the Local Development Plan does not have the power to enforce this requirement.

FAQs

What does Scheme Amendment No.118 do?

The purpose of Scheme Amendment No.118 is to introduce additional planning conditions into the City’s Local Planning Scheme No.3.

These conditions will ensure that when the former industrial land in Dianella is developed, the Rights of Way, Vehicle Access Ways and Pedestrian Access Ways requirements of the Local Development Plan for the area can be achieved.

Why is Scheme Amendment No.118 required?

The Rights of Way, Vehicle Access Ways and Pedestrian Access Ways requirements are currently only contained within the Local Development Plan for the area.

To ensure that landowners provide vehicle and pedestrian accessways when the land is developed, the City’s Local Planning Scheme No.3 must be amended because the Local Development Plan does not have the power to enforce this requirement.

Without this requirement in Local Planning Scheme No.3, these necessary works might not be provided.

Why is it important that the Rights of Way, Vehicle Access Ways and Pedestrian Access Ways requirements be implemented?

The implementation of the access and built form outcomes outlined by the Local Development Plan for the area relies on the provision of these vehicle and pedestrian accessways.

The Local Development Plan and the associated building types have been designed around the location of these vehicle and pedestrian accessways. This is to ensure the majority of lots will have a street or accessway frontage.

Any removal of these accessways, or changes in their location, will result in the building types and the associated setbacks and orientation requirements being unsuitable for assessment of applications.

This would mean that the vision for the area – as outlined in the Local Development Plan that was developed in conjunction with the community’s feedback - will not be achieved.

How will the planning conditions for the Rights of Way, Vehicle Access Ways and Pedestrian Access Ways be implemented?

These additional conditions will form part of the provisions under the ‘Additional Use (A89)’ designation that currently apply over those sites.

The Additional Use provisions currently applicable can be found in the Local Planning Scheme No.3 Scheme Text on the City’s website.

Which sites will Scheme Amendment No.118 apply to?

Walter Road, Dianella Right of Way

Scheme Amendment No.118 applies to the following sites within the subject area.

Will Scheme Amendment No.118 modify the existing Local Development Plan for the area?

No. The Local Development Plan for the area – known as the Walter Road West Neighbourhood Centre Local Development Plan – was adopted by Council 23 June 2020, and Scheme Amendment No.118 will not modify it.

Scheme Amendment No.118 only includes the Rights of Way, Vehicle Access Ways and Pedestrian Access Ways requirements contained within the Local Development Plan into the City’s Local Planning Scheme No.3. This is to ensure that these works will be provided by the landowners.
