What Is Being Proposed?

Our Council has resolved to initiate an amendment to modify the boundary of the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan.

The amendment proposes that the boundary be modified so that it follows along Helm Street, Sleat Road and Wren Street to Ullapool Road, Mount Pleasant (see map). The properties proposed to be excluded from the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan are recommended to have their zoning modified from Centre Zone RAC-0 (H4 or H8) to Residential R20.

What is the difference between the Scheme and Activity Centre Plan amendments?

The planning process requires amendments to both the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan and a corresponding amendment to the City’s Local Planning Scheme.

The Activity Centre Plan amendment is required to modify the boundary of the CBACP.

The Local Planning Scheme amendment is required to provide a zoning to the properties no longer within the CBACP. The recommended zoning for these properties is Residential R20. 

To simplify the consultation process the WAPC has approved the City advertising the two amendments concurrently

What do the R-AC0, H4 & H8 and R20 zonings mean?

R-AC0 – The R-AC0 zoning is for areas where an Activity Centre Plan applies. In this instance R-AC0 refers to the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) area.

H4 – The H4 zone is applicable under the CBACP and allows for residential development (generally apartments) up to four storeys.

H8 – The H8 zone is applicable under the CBACP and allows for residential development (generally apartments) up to eight storeys.

R20 – The R20 zone is applicable under the City’s Local Planning Scheme and is based on State Planning Policy 7.3 Residential Design Codes. This allows for residential development (generally houses) up to three storeys on 450sqm lots.
