Population and housing - Managed growth strategy
(Refer to page 8 of the Summary Document and Part 14 of the Draft Local Planning Strategy)

The City is forecast to grow by approximately 4,784 dwellings by 2031*. The Draft Local Planning Strategy includes actions to accommodate the majority of the City’s future population growth in certain areas, referred to as managed growth areas, identified as activity centres and urban corridors. These actions are collectively referred to as the Managed Growth Strategy. Accommodating growth in this way is consistent with the State Government’s growth strategy, Perth and Peel@3.5million. All of the locations outlined in the Managed Growth Strategy are identified in Perth and Peel@3.5million and subsequent State planning policies as being appropriate areas in which to accommodate a growing population. Each managed growth area has been selected on the basis of its higher levels of access to employment, education, transport infrastructure, goods and services and leisure opportunities. Directing new growth towards specific locations in a managed and coordinated way will strengthen these places, making them more liveable, prosperous and connected. This approach also allows the existing amenity of approximately 75% of the City to remain unaffected. Directing growth towards these managed growth areas will minimise the need to increase residential densities in other areas of the City. *Refer to page 6 of the Summary Document for more information about this forecast.

To what extent do you support the overall approach of the Managed Growth Strategy?

Population and housing - Dual density codes

Residential properties throughout the City are given a density code which determines the density, form and scale of development that can occur on that land. The City’s Town Planning Scheme No. 6 applies a dual code to large areas of the City, meaning that the land is subject to two different codes. Where certain criteria are met, land can be developed at the higher of the two codes, typically meaning more dwellings can be built. The dual code criteria relates to matters such as whether neighbouring sites have been subdivided, the previous coding of a site under the previous scheme, landscaping and the setback of buildings to the street. The Draft Local Planning Strategy recommends the City review this system to allow people to develop at the higher code when a development proposes to provide: - Protection of significant vegetation and trees - Increased levels of open space and space between buildings - Higher levels of environmentally sensitive design - For under-represented dwelling types (one and two bedroom dwellings, apartments and terraces, etc.) - Opportunities for the City’s older residents to age-in-place.

To what extent do you support this approach for dual density codes?
