DAP-2019-14 Proposed multi-dwelling development 4 Colleran Way, Booragoon


Thank you for your thoughts on the height of the proposed development on 4 Colleran Way, Booragoon. We are currently preparing the Responsible Authority Report for the JDAP meeting.

Last Updated: 10 July 2020

What is Being Proposed?

A variation is sought to the proposed building height on the proposed development of a four-storey, multiple dwelling development on 4 Colleran Way, Booragoon. 

The proposal was advertised as 4-storey development and now it is regarded as a 5-storey development due to modifications proposed to the basement level.

We are now seeking community comment for the proposed building height as measured in storeys, despite the development meeting the prescribed height limit when measured in metres.

Who did we engaging with?

We invited residents who live around 4 Colleran Way, Booragoon to share their thoughts on the variation of building height on the proposed development.

Letters to adjoining residences were sent out notifying them of the proposed development and the opportunity to comment. 

A sign was placed onsite as well as information on the City of Melville's website about the engagement. 


How could you get involved?

The community could make a submission about the variation on the proposed development at 4 Colleran Way, Booragoon via

  • Melville Talks using the online submission form
  • By email: melinfo@melville.wa.gov.au
  • By letter: Chief Executive Officer, City of Melville, Locked Bag 1, Booragoon, WA 6954

This was the second opportunity to comment on the proposed development. 

What will happen with submissions?

The Responsible Authority Report submitted to the Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) will provide a summary of the submissions received during the consultation period as well as a response to the matters raised. The submissions will then be considered by the JDAP as part of its decision making process. 

The submissions received during the previous comment period will be considered in the assessment of this amended proposal.

Each person who makes a submission will receive notification when the application is booked in to be considered at a Council or JDAP meeting.

Who is the decision maker?

The development cost is $3 million and the applicant has elected to have the development determined by the State Joint Development Assessment Panel (DAP).

Why are we advertising this application?

The application was previously advertised as it requires a performance assessment in relation to the proposed plot ratio, provision of visitor parking and side setbacks. Due to changes to the basement design the building height now requires a performance assessment and therefore the application is being advertised a second time.

How do we assess this development?

As a part of the City’s assessment it will take into account the relevant provisions of City of Melville Local Planning Scheme No.6, and relevant state and local planning policies.

At the completion of the assessment a Responsible Authority Report will be complied by City officers and sent to the DAP to assist it in making a final decision.

As a part of the assessment process the Responsible Authority Report may be called up to Council for its consideration.
