The feedback period has now closed for this amendment.

Submissions are invited on a proposal (amendment) to modify the town planning requirements for land in the Preston Street Neighbourhood Centre. These requirements relate to matters such as building height, density, land use and parking. The amendment was submitted to the City of South Perth on behalf of some of the landowners within the Preston Street Neighbourhood Centre.

In summary, the amendment proposes:

  • Recoding of Site ‘R’ (broadly the ‘Como Centre’) to allow for re-development of the site up to a maximum height of 29 metres (8 storeys)
  • Recoding of Site ‘S’ (broadly the land around the Cygnet Theatre) to allow for re-development of the site up to a maximum height of up to 47 metres (13 storeys), subject to specific development criteria relating to setbacks, public benefits and solar access
  • Increase the maximum building height limit for ‘Other Sites’ from 10.5 metres to 14 metres (generally 4 storeys)
  • Introduce requirements for Site ‘R’ and Site ‘S’ to make provision for/or payment towards upgrading of the public realm along Preston Street and the conservation of the Cygnet Theatre building
  • Additional permitted land uses (such as apartments, shops and offices) specific to Site ‘R’ and Site ‘S’ and modifications to parking requirements.
