Amendment 92 - 31 Edale Way, Westminster

Consultation has concluded

Planning and Development Act 2005

Town Planning Scheme Amendment

Local Planning Scheme No.3:- Amendment No.92

Rezoning of House Number 31 Edale Way, Westminister from 'Civic' to 'Residential (R40)'

At its meeting on 20 February 2018, Council considered a change to the zoning of House Number 31 Edale Way, Westminster from ‘Civic’ to ‘Residential (R40)’.

Until late 2012 the Department of Education had used the site for pre-primary education. As the City owned the land and it was no longer required for civic or educational uses, a decision was made to rezone the land and sell it.

Before the site could be used for any other purpose, the zoning of the land had to be changed.

This Scheme Amendment sought to rezone the site from ‘Civic’ to ‘Residential (R40)’, with a requirement that development of the land be undertaken in accordance with a plan of subdivision prepared by the City. This subdivision plan would restrict the number of houses that could be developed if the land was rezoned.

The proposal was advertised between May and June 2018.

At its meeting on 7 August 2018 Council considered the outcomes of advertising of the Scheme Amendment, and resolved to proceed with 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 15 August 2018.

On 25 October 2018, the City was instructed by the Minister for Planning that the Scheme Amendment documents were to be modified to remove the proposed restrictions on how the land could be developed.

The City’s officers modified the documents as requested by the Minister, and on 23 November 2018 the Minister for Planning granted final approval for the Scheme Amendment.

The changes to the City’s Local Planning Scheme came into effect on 11 December 2018.
