Consultation has concluded
Planning and Development Act 2005
Town Planning Scheme Amendment
Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.77
Rezone House Numbers 60 and 62 Glendale Avenue, House Numbers 650 to 686 Beach Road, and House Number 264 Erindale Road, Hamersley
At its meeting on 5 July 2016, Council considered an application that had been submitted by a landowner in the area to rezone 21 lots on Beach Road between
Glendale Avenue and Erindale Road from 'Residential (R20)' to 'Special Use – Mixed Use and Residential (R-AC0)'.
The proposed rezoning would allow these properties to be developed with a mixture of commercial and residential uses in the one building, for example, a building with office on the ground floor and residential apartments on the upper floors.
When Council considered the Scheme Amendment No.77, it decided not to proceed with it.
Despite Council not supporting the Scheme Amendment, in December 2017 the City was instructed by the Minister for Planning to proceed with (advertise) the proposal. The City had no option but to comply with the Minister’s Order.
The proposal was advertised between March and May 2018.
At its meeting on 18 September 2018, Council considered the outcomes of advertising of the Scheme Amendment, and resolved not to proceed with (not support) the proposal.
As the Minister is responsible for final determination of Scheme Amendments, the City sent the Scheme Amendment to the Western Australian Planning Commission for a ministerial decision on 3 October 2018.
In June 2019, the Western Australian Planning Commission advised the City that the Minister for Planning required the Scheme Amendment to be modified to rezone only three lots from ‘Residential (R20)’ to ‘Mixed Use (R60)’, prior to the Minister making a final determination on the Scheme Amendment. These are House Number 650, Beach Road and House Numbers 60 and 62, Glendale Avenue, Hamersley, which are located at the corner of Beach Road and Glendale Avenue.
In addition to changing the zoning of these three lots, the Minister also instructed that the ‘Beach Road Special Control Area’ be introduced over the three lots, with a set of development standards to be inserted into the City’s Local Planning Scheme No.3 Scheme Text to control development within the new Special Control Area.
The Minister granted approval for the Scheme Amendment on 4 July 2019, and the changes to the City’s Local Planning Scheme came into effect on 30 July 2019.
