The City has been working on plans to coordinate future development of the southern end of Rokeby Road with Council approving the draft Local Development Plan (LDP) last night.
The LDP considers development on private land and looks at building height, set back requirements, design standards and more.
The State Government identified the Rokeby Road South precinct for urban growth and the City has been investigating how to facilitate this through the draft LDP, alongside a draft Streetscape Masterplan which is expected to be presented to Council for consideration soon.
Both plans were developed with extensive community input – including an urban design forum, community working group, community and stakeholder workshops and studies of the precinct – and aim to complement and enhance the special character that already exists in the area.
Modifications were made to the draft LDP in response to matters raised in submissions from the community, including further consideration of heritage-related matters.
The LDP was considered by Council last night and was given the green light. The City will now seek final approval for specific elements of the plan from the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).
