Amendment No.46 ‘South Perth Station Precinct’

The out for comment period has now closed.

Amendment No. 46 was initiated to rectify anomalies, clarify ambiguities and strengthen performance criteria for building height variations relating to development provisions affecting the South Perth Station Precinct. In March 2015, the City first advertised Amendment No. 46 for public comment.

At a Special Council Meeting held on 27 October 2015, the Council considered submissions received during that consultation period, and endorsed a set of significant modifications to Amendment No. 46 in response to community concerns. The significant modifications to Amendment No. 46 were open for public comment from November 2015 to February 2016. The City received 882 submissions on the Scheme Amendment during the second public comment period which expressed a diverse range of views and opinions.

At the Council meeting held on Tuesday 26 April 2016, the City's Council recommended to the Minister for Planning that Town Planning Scheme Amendment No. 46 ‘South Perth Station Precinct’ be adopted with modifications.

The amendment was referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission in May 2016. In December 2016, the Minister for Planning Hon. Donna Faragher considered the amendment and requested the City make a number of modifications before approval was given.

The City modified the amendment as it was legally required to. There was no provision for any further appeal or public consultation and the amendment was submitted to the WAPC by 31 January 2017.

The amendment came into immediate operational effect following its publication in the Government Gazette on Tuesday 21 February 2017.
