Following a series of studies, community consultation and the preparation of a detailed character study report (Kensington/South Perth – Character Study Report), the City has prepared a draft amendment to Town Planning Scheme No. 6 and an associated draft local planning policy.

The draft amendment and policy were considered by Council at its meeting of 26 June 2018, where Council agreed to commence formal public advertising on the proposals.

The draft amendment proposes to:
