The Property Council welcomes the announcement that the Planning Minister, Rita Saffioti has provided final approval to the new City of Nedlands Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS).

The new scheme will enable more housing choice, ageing-in-place opportunities and higher residential density around strategic transport corridors. The Property Council congratulates the Minister for assisting in the delivery of a scheme that will unlock greater housing diversity close to where people work and study.

Infill targets will be addressed with well-designed higher densities permitted in close proximity to transport/urban corridors, and specialised and neighbourhood activity centres. These include:

  • Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre;
  • The University of Western Australia;
  • The Dalkeith neighbourhood centre on Waratah Avenue;
  • Stirling Highway and adjacent streets located in the City of Nedlands.
The newly approved scheme will replace Nedlands' existing 34-year-old town planning scheme!
