Council have resolved to not adopt a proposed amendment to Local Planning Scheme No. 5 (LPS 5) regarding a change in density within the street block bound by Waylen Road, Railway Road, Morgan Street and Fortune Street.
The City recently received the request from a landowner for a proposed increased in density to a number of lots in this block.
Council deemed the proposed amendment was not consistent with a local planning strategy for the scheme that has been endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission.
Affected landowners were not consulted with before the scheme amendment request was lodged so the City sent out a letter and information sheet to directly these people, advising them of the proposal earlier this month.
