Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan

Canning Centre Activity Bridge

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan has been created through a partnership with State Departments and two Local Governments. The unique location has allowed a unique collaborative approach to planning in the area.

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan establishes a foundation for the future of the area including objectives and goals for its ongoing development, guidelines for the style of built form which is expected, and an implementation framework for orderly improvements to infrastructure and land over time.

It is proposed that the Activity Centre will comprise a mix of residential, civic, office, retail and entertainment uses against the backdrop of the Swan and Canning Rivers and the adjacent open space.

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre is less than eight kilometres from the Perth CBD, with direct road, public transport, walking and cycling access. The Activity Centre comprises land within both the City of Melville and the City of South Perth and includes a substantial river footprint.

The areas within the City of Melville are identified under two distinct quarters:

  • Q1 “The Kintail Quarter” will be the premier retail area and the driving force behind the employment opportunities in the Canning Bridge Activity Centre
  • Q2  “The Ogilvie Quarter” will be the business quarter and the playground of the western quarter

Anyone wishing to consider development in this area is encouraged to review the design guidelines contained under the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan document.

Please note that there have been modifications since the document was printed in 2015. If you have a printed version with the cover date of March 2015, please refer to the list of modifications. A current version of the document can be found under the "Related Documents" section below.

Review of Canning Bridge Activity Centre

Following feedback and some community concerns about building heights in the Canning Bridge precinct Council are working towards reviewing the Canning Bridge Activity Centre (CBAC) Plan to ensure it is still meeting community needs and requirements now and into the future.

The first stage of this review aims to provide additional certainty about building height and has proposed the introduction of building height limits in the M10 and M15 zones. In November 2019 Council resolved to introduce an upper height limit of 13 storeys in the M10 zone and 20 storeys in the M15 zone. These suggested changes to the CBAC Plan have been sent to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC), who are expected to consider the height limit proposal in March 2020.

The next stage of the review of the CBAC Plan will examine other challenges and opportunities for the Precinct. The review will make recommendations on a wide variety of matters such as traffic management, parking, buildings, land uses, protection of amenity and enhance public spaces. Current processes relating to the awarding of additional building height in exchange for community benefits will also be completed. One of the first steps will be to involve the community in revisiting the vision and aspirations for the precinct, with initial community engagement expected to start around May 2020 and continue throughout 2020.
