State Planning Policies
State Planning Policy 7.3 – Residential Design Codes Volume 2 – Apartments (SPP 7.3)
On 24 May 2019, the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage released SPP 7.3 Volume 2 as the framework to assess multiple dwelling (apartment) developments. SPP 7.3 Volume 2 is divided into different ‘design elements’ such as plot ratio, landscaping, visual privacy and parking. For all ‘design elements’ there are Element Objectives which a development needs to achieve
Unlike the previous Residential Design Codes, SPP 7.3 Volume 2 does not have a ‘Deemed-to-Comply’ pathway for multiple dwellings (apartments) which is a more prescriptive approach to development assessment. Instead SPP 7.3 Volume 2 provides Acceptable Outcomes and Design Guidance to assist in achieving the Element Objectives for a more performance and design based development assessment.
Further information regarding SPP 7.3 Volume 2 is available via the following link: https://www.dplh.wa.gov.au/policy-and-legislation/state-planning-framework/design-wa/design-wa-stage-1-documents-and-additional-resourc
City of Stirling Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS 3)
The City’s LPS 3 provides the basis for the application of the City’s planning framework and controls the types of uses and development permitted throughout the City. LPS 3 provides specific development controls to Karrinyup Shopping Centre and the statutory basis for the application of the City’s local planning policies.

As the proposed development has been lodged as a DAP application, the City is not the decision-maker for this application with the application to be determined by the Metro Inner-North Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP).
The JDAP consists of five panel members including:
- The Presiding Member (a specialist member);
- Two specialist members; and
- Two local government members (elected members nominated by Council).
Though the City is not the decision maker for this application, the City undertakes an assessment of the application, including comments provided by referral agencies and submissions received during the consultation period. As part of the City’s assessment, the application will be referred to the City’s Design Review Panel for comment. The City’s Design Review Panel provides independent design advice regarding large scale and complex development applications to assist in facilitating improved design outcomes. It should be noted that meetings of the City’s Design Review Panel are not open to the public. Further information regarding the City’s Design Review Panel is available via the following link: https://www.stirling.wa.gov.au/planning-and-building/design-review-panel
Once the City has finalised its assessment of the application, the City prepares and submits a Responsible Authority Report (RAR) to the JDAP for consideration. The City’s RAR will include a recommendation for the application (i.e. approval, refusal or deferral). Please note the JDAP may determine an application that is either consistent or different to the City’s recommendation.
Following the receipt of City’s RAR, the JDAP will review the application and arrange a meeting where the application will be determined, noting an application may be deferred by the JDAP if further information is required to determine the application. The meeting will be open to the public and those who have made a submission may be permitted to make a presentation at the meeting regarding the application. The City’s officers and applicant will also be in attendance at the meeting.
Following the JDAP meeting, the minutes of the meeting will be finalised and the determination letter provided to the applicant and City.
