Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan
The City and the State Government have been planning for the redevelopment of the area around the Glendalough Station and along Scarborough Beach Road for the last 20 years. This area is known as the “Herdsman Glendalough Area” and falls within the suburb of Osborne Park as shown in the image below.
This project aims to facilitate the transition of Herdsman Glendalough over time into a vibrant mixed-use area with an improved public realm and a strong focus on public transport.
The planning for the area is almost complete with the area being rezoned in 2018 to a ‘Development’ zone under the City’s Local Planning Scheme, and to an ‘Urban’ zone under the Metropolitan Region Scheme. In June 2020, Council adopted building design guidelines and a parking policy for the area.
The City is now seeking your comments on the modified Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan and Amendment 114 to Local Planning Scheme No.3.
Where is the Herdsman Glendalough Area?
The Herdsman Glendalough Area is located within the suburb of Osborne Park. The project area is shown in the image below.
What consultation has occurred so far?
In 2015 The City advertised The Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan, The Herdsman Glendalough Local Development Plan and Amendment 39 to the City’s Local Planning Scheme. In 2015/2016 the Western Australian Planning Commission advertised Amendment 1291/41 to the Metropolitan Region Scheme.
What changes are proposed for the Herdsman Glendalough Area?
The Herdsman Glendalough Area is one of the City’s key urban intensification projects. The vision is to transform Herdsman Glendalough over time from a low scale commercial precinct into a vibrant mixed use area with a strong focus on public transport and improved public amenity.
What information can be found in the Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan and Amendment 114 to Local Planning Scheme No.3?
The Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan contains provisions relating to land use, subdivision and new roads. Amendment 114 contains provisions relating to land use, new roads, parking and public open space.
The City is currently seeking comments on the modified version of the Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan and Amendment 114 to Local Planning Scheme No.3.
The Herdsman Glendalough Structure Plan, Amendment 39 to the City’s Local Planning Scheme and Amendment 1291/41 to the Metropolitan Region Scheme have all now progressed and have been adopted. Comments on these documents can therefore no longer be considered.
When will development in the Herdsman Glendalough Area occur?
Development can occur now in the Herdsman Glendalough Area. The City has already rezoned the area from “Industry” to “Development” zone and adopted a parking policy and building guidelines that set heights and setbacks. The documents being advertised can already be used to help determine development applications.

Dear Planning Team, I'm seeking a response from you on the formulation of the above survey. It reads like residents have been overlooked and its targeted towards businesses. I'd be grateful for an explanation, please see the points below. Q3 - Does not clearly identify owner occupiers or residents who may be renting - why is this? This is a significant omission, particularly in considering local amenity and improving the area for residents. It also sets the tone for the entire plan, that it is commercially motivated to the exclusion of residents. Q7 - This question seems OK, but it feels as if this survey is (consciously or subconsciously) biased towards businesses. In the Structure Plan, CoS states that it doesn't own any land in the area that could be developed into public open space. Therefore, it is proposing a cash in lieu of POS for new sites developed. It stands to reason that businesses aren't not going to be in favour of 'greening Osborne Park' as it will cost them money. Can you explain how you are going to properly represent the respondents and their interests, especially in regard to these two questions? This doesn't feel like a balanced survey and I'm very interested to hear your response around how the information will be accurately analysed and presented. Look forward to your response.

Hi Gemma, thanks for your questions. The Herdsman Glendalough area is a large and diverse area encompassing many types of properties, tenants and land uses. We apologise if you feel the options weren’t encompassing enough for local residential tenants, we encourage you to select ‘I live nearby and interested in what is happening’ to best reflect your position. The survey has been designed to establish the values of business owners, landowners and nearby residents on various planning issues including proposed zoning changes, the greening of the area and future transport options to inform future staging and strategy implementation. In reporting a balanced account of the key issues, we will detail the themes and issues identified by all respondents and will be presented to Council in due course. The survey is just one way to have your say. If you feel you would like to comments on any other matters, or expand further, please send us a written submission (you can do this within the survey itself or send separately to email@example.com) or feel free to call the City Planning team on 9205 8555 to discuss any other concerns.
For more information, or to receive this information in an alternative format, contact City Planning on (08) 9205 8555.
