You are encouraged to examine the draft policies and to lodge a written submission. Your submission should include:

  • comments either supporting or opposing the proposals, or suggesting particular ways in which you believe that the draft Policy should be modified;
  • reasons for your opinion, or other discussion to explain your comments; and

Feedback has been extended to 5pm, Friday 13 May 2016.

Written submissions should be addressed to:

or emailed to: feedback@southperth.wa.gov.au

Written comments are invited on the draft revised Planning Policies relating to:

  • P301: rename policy from ‘Consultation for Planning Proposals’, to ‘Community Engagement in Planning Proposals’, reflecting the expanded scope of the Policy. If approved, the amended Policy will have the effect of widening the extent of neighbour and community consultation undertaken for certain kinds of Planning proposals.
  • P312: addition of a clause restricting change of use from Serviced Apartment within the Special Design Area of Special Control Area 1 to non-residential uses only.
  • P350.02: amendments to make the policy consistent with the Residential Design Codes.
  • P350.03: amendments to update reference to Town Planning Scheme No. 6, remove duplication of Residential Design Codes requirements, clarify requirements relating to setbacks and carports, and specify minimum sizes for car stackers.
  • P350.04: deletion of clauses regarding skillion roofs and upgrade of retained dwellings, as they are no longer used.
  • P350.07: amendments to allow fibre cement or metal sheeting on side boundaries within the front setback and walls to shield meter boxes adjacent to the street boundary, ensure any fencing within a driveway corner truncation area is visually permeable, and describe the method of measuring the driveway corner truncation area.
  • P350.09: amendment to the scope of the policy to account for the new deemed provisions in Town Planning Scheme No. 6 and amendment to the policy statement to clarify information requirements and factors considered in assessing impact on significant views.
