LPS 7 was approved by the Minister for Planning on 11 March 2024 and published in the Western Australian Government Gazette on 27 March 2024. Visit the City's website to find out more.

The City of South Perth is inviting stakeholder and community feedback on the draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7 (PDF, 2.74 MB) (draft LPS 7). The draft LPS 7 will replace the City’s existing Town Planning Scheme No. 6 (TPS 6) and is a statutory document that guides how land is used and developed in the City.

The draft LPS 7 proposes changes to the ‘zones’ and ‘densities’ (also known as R-Codes) of properties within ‘growth areas’. These changes may affect your property and influence future redevelopment in your local area.

How can I find out if my property is affected by the proposed changes?

Use the mapping tool to find out if your property is in a growth area and if the density code is proposed to change. You can also use this tool to look at any other areas in the City that may be of interest to you. You can also find out information on current and future zones as part of the mapping tool.

How can I find out more?

The draft LPS 7 is a comprehensive document, so we have developed a variety of tools to make it easier to provide feedback.

To find out how the proposed changes may affect your property and influence future redevelopment in your local area, please refer to the Need to know information sheet (PDF, 498 KB) which in addition explains how to provide the most useful and constructive feedback.

Other information sheets available include: growth areas information sheet (PDF, 5.47 MB), residential design codes information sheet (PDF, 138 KB) and a planning framework overview information sheet (PDF, 1.5 MB).

The City is also seeking feedback on the draft Building Height Local Planning Policy and the draft Salter Point Escarpment Local Planning Policy. These policies outline proposed development standards and objectives used by the City to assess and make decisions on planning applications under draft LPS 7, specifically with regard to building height. Find out more about these draft policies and provide feedback online.

    Hi there, thank you for your question. The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) considered draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7 (LPS 7) on 24 October 2023. The WAPC meeting Agenda and Minutes can be viewed here. The item was listed as a confidential item and therefore the recommendation of the WAPC to the Planning Minister was not made publicly available. The City is currently awaiting final approval of draft LPS 7 from the Planning Minister which is anticipated in coming months. Once LPS 7 has been published in the Government Gazette it will be available to the public. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact the Strategic Planning Team on 9474 0777.

    Matthew asked over 1 year ago

    Hello and thank you for your question. Under draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7 (LPS 7), the building height requirements are to be as per the Residential Design Codes (R-Codes). The R-Codes set a wall height of 7m and pitched roof height of 10m, measured from natural ground level across a site. This is a minor change from the current Town Planning Scheme which sets a building height of 7m measured from the highest point on the block, and excludes roof height. These requirements apply both to the R20 and R30 densities.

    Ian Galbraith asked over 1 year ago

    Hello and thank you for your question. The properties at lots 6-17,19-30.105 & 7570 Canning Highway, South Perth are proposed to be zoned Residential R80 under draft LPS 7. These properties are subject to the following additional requirements in the draft LPS 7 for ‘ASR11’:

    (1) The maximum height of buildings on the site(s) shall be no greater than 3 storeys and 12.0 metres.

    (2) Buildings greater than 3.0 metres in height shall be setback a minimum of 6.0 metres to any lot boundary of a site with frontage to Campbell Street, Kensington.

    In answer to your questions:

    1. These sites could be developed with a range of housing options including, apartments, town houses, units and single houses.
    2. The properties could be amalgamated to achieve a larger development site. 
    3. As per the above requirements, a 6m rear setback (to the Campbell Street property common boundary) is required for any part of the building greater than 3m in height. Buildings below 3m in height are required to be setback 3m from the rear boundary. 
    4. The above properties are also subject to Special Control Area requirements. The intent of these provisions is to require a Plan (prior to new development or subdivision) to coordinate vehicle access from Canning Highway and reduce the overall number of access points. 
    5. These properties have been proposed with an R80 density, consistent with the City’s Local Planning Strategy which was endorsed by Council in July 2020 and approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission in February 2021. 

     If you would like to discuss this further please contact the Strategic Planning Team on 9474 0777.

    Martin O'Carroll asked over 1 year ago

    Hello and thanks for your question. Nos. 1 – 15 Stone Street are within the South Perth Activity Centre Plan area and are subject to Schedule C – Additional Centre Requirements – ACR2 of draft LPS 7. These lots are identified as ‘Low – Medium’ Typology and have a Primary Building Height Limit of 5 storeys. Subject to meeting additional criteria under Element 8 of the ACR2 requirements of draft LPS 7, the Tier 1 Building Height Limit may be considered being a maximum of 9 storeys. The additional criteria includes achieving ‘design excellence’, making a community benefit contribution, among other additional design and planning considerations.

    Amendment 61 to the City’s current Town Planning Scheme No. 6 was approved in December 2021 to introduce these requirements. The requirements are proposed to be carried over into draft LPS 7 unchanged.

    Hi. Thank you for your question. It is anticipated that LPS 7 will be gazetted and become operational around December 2023 if all goes to plan. However, there is a staged process to go through as follows, which may alter the timeframe:

    • Feedback period closes 29 November 2022
    • Review of feedback
    • Revised LPS 7 presented to Council to endorse and be sent to WA Planning Commission (WAPC) for consideration (anticipated March 2023)
    • WAPC Statutory Planning Committee considers LPS 7 and makes recommendation to the Planning Minister
    • Planning Minister issues final decision
    • LPS 7 is gazetted and becomes operational (TPS 6 is revoked) (anticipated December 2023).

    Hello and thank you for your question. There are different plot ratio requirements for the R80 and R100 densities, which are applicable to apartment style developments. The R80 density has a plot ratio of 1.0, and the R100 density has a plot ratio of 1.3. Plot ratio refers to the amount of apartment floorspace that can be developed on a site. For example, if your lot is 1,000m2 and R80, with a 1.0 plot ratio you can develop 1,000m2 of apartment floorspace over 4 storeys. If your lot is 1,000m2 and R100, with a plot ratio of 1.3 you can develop 1,300m2 of apartment floorspace over 4 storeys. There is also a different minimum rear setback requirement between the R80 coding and R100 of 3m and 6m, respectively. You can view the R-Codes Volume 2 for further information.

    Hi. Thanks for your question. ASR12 refers to ‘Additional Site Requirements (Schedule) 12’ in the draft LPS7 (page 42), which adds site constraints to the Salter Point Escarpment building height. There are 12 sites with additional requirements in the City and this is the 12th. On a related topic, the City is currently seeking feedback on two draft building height policies, one of which refers to the Salter Point Escarpment. You can find out more on the Building Height Policies webpage.
