Amendment 105 - 13A Huckle Street, Tuart Hill

Consultation has concluded

Planning and Development Act 2005

Town Planning Scheme Amendment

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.105

Rezoning of 13A Huckle Street, Tuart Hill to 'Local Reserve - Public Open Space and Local Authority Purpose'

In April this year, Council considered a change to the zoning of a portion of road reserve at Lot 330, House Number 13A, Huckle Street, Tuart Hill to ‘Local Reserve – Public Open Space and Local Authority Purposes’.

Although the site is reserved as ‘Road Reserve’, it forms part of the abutting ‘Huckle Reserve - Local Reserve’ and has been used for this purpose for many years.

Council has decided that the site should be reserved as a ‘Local Reserve’ and so the zoning of the land needs to change.


Where can I find more information about the amendment?

More information about why the City is intending to rezone this land can be found in the Council report which can be viewed by downloading the Council Minutes located in the document library.

The Scheme Amendment document details the changes to the Local Planning Scheme No.3 that the City is proposing, which can be viewed by downloading the file in the document library.

Alternatively, a copy is available for viewing during business hours (8.30am - 5.00pm, Monday to Friday) at the City of Stirling Main Administration Building located at 25 Cedric Street.

What does this Scheme Amendment Do?

The purpose of proposed Scheme Amendment No.105 is to rezone a portion of road reserve at Lot 330, House Number 13A, Huckle Street, Tuart Hill to ‘Local Reserve - Public Open Space and Local Authority Purposes’ .

Why has the Council decided to advertise this Scheme Amendment?

The proposed rezoning was considered by Council in April 2018 and Council resolved to proceed to advertise the Amendment. For this reason, the City is now advertising Scheme Amendment 105 for public comment.

What comments can I make?

The City is keen to hear the views of all residents in the area, and wants the community to be able to freely express it’s views on the proposal.

However, when Council considers the comments received, it must consider the planning merits of the proposal, and the planning issues that have been raised during public consultation.  The City asks that comments be limited to those directly related to the planning merits or impacts of the proposed Scheme Amendment.  Examples of the issues that can be considered valid planning considerations include:

  • The requirements of orderly and proper planning including any proposed local planning scheme or amendment to this Scheme that has been advertised under the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 or any other proposed planning instrument that the local government is seriously considering adopting or approving;
  • The compatibility of the development with its setting including the relationship of the development to development on adjoining land or on other land in the locality including, but not limited to, the likely effect of the height, bulk, scale, orientation and appearance of the development;
  • The amenity of the locality including the following:
    • (i) environmental impacts of the development
    • (ii) the character of the locality
    • (iii) social impacts of the development.
  • The adequacy of:
    • (i) the proposed means of access to and egress from the site
    • (ii) arrangements for the loading, unloading, manoeuvring and parking of vehicles.
  • The amount of traffic likely to be generated by the development, particularly in relation to the capacity of the road system in the locality and the probable effect on traffic flow and safety
  • The impact of the development on the community as a whole notwithstanding the impact of the development on particular individuals;
  • Any submissions received on the application

The City’s officers must balance the comments received with an assessment of the likely impacts of the proposal, and must be satisfied that there is a factual or realistic basis to the opinions expressed on a proposal.

Matters that cannot be considered valid planning reasons for objecting to a proposal include:

  • Perceived loss of property value
  • Private disputes between neighbours including access & egress and easements
  • Impact of construction work
  • Trade competition concerns (in most circumstances)
  • Matters that is controlled under other legislation.
