Canning Highway Stage 2

For the most up to date information on the Canning Highway project, visit the Canning Highway page on the City of South Perth website.

As part of the second stage of the Canning Highway #ShapeOurPlace project, the City engaged consultants to undertake a detailed assessment of the character of Kensington and South Perth either side of Canning Highway between Berwick St and Douglas Ave (identified as Places 1 and 2 below).


The Character Study (Part A) identified various built form and other elements that contribute positively to the character of the study area. From this, seven key character elements were identified to inform the preparation of new planning controls to ensure that the anticipated future medium density development responds to the valued established character of the study area.

The City invited comments on the draft Character Study report for Kensington/South Perth - Part A. Feedback closed on Friday 4 November 2016. Based on the findings of Part A of the Character Study and engagement feedback, part B of the Kensington/South Perth Character study is now complete and available to download.

The City is now preparing an access study and drafting a Town Planning Scheme amendment and associated Local Planning Policy based on the report recommendations. These documents will be advertised for community comment once the access study is completed.
