FINAL APPROVAL OF NEDANDS PLANNING SCHEME COMPLETE

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!
