Thank you to everyone who helped prioritise projects for the South Perth Activity Centre. This project is now complete.

A copy of the approved Amendment 61 and South Perth ACP, which includes the Community Benefit Contribution Project List, is available for download from the City’s website.

Background: As part of the preparation of the Public Benefit Contribution Plan, a list of potential projects for the South Perth Activity Centre has been developed and we want your help to prioritise the projects.

The City is taking an important step to ensure that new developments contribute positively to the South Perth Activity Centre Plan (ACP) area and deliver benefits back to residents, workers and visitors.

The Public Benefit Contribution Plan (PBCP) identifies potential new and upgraded community facility and infrastructure projects that a developer could contribute towards as part of a significant Development Application within this ACP area. Read the background section below to find out more about the PBCP and how the projects were identified.

We asked: We would like you to help prioritise the list of potential projects. Your responses will help inform the order in which the projects are delivered within each area when public benefit contribution funds are received.

How was feedback provided?

    1. Why isn't there a Public Benefit Contribution Project List for other areas of the city? With the approval of Amendment 63 where is the PBCPL for Preston St? 2. How is the PBCPL funded? 3. What is the rational/data that indicates that traffic lights are required at the corner of Labouchere Rd and Richardson and Angelo Sts?

    Q171 asked 9 months ago

    Hi there. Thanks for your questions. Here are our responses:

    1. The public benefit contribution plan proposed was created specifically to support the South Perth Activity Centre Plan and is the first of its kind in WA. Amendment 63 did not include a public benefit contribution list. Instead it had its own provisions and requirements relating to the creation of a public plaza and streetscape upgrades such as surface treatments, street furniture and street trees.
    2. Within the SPACP area, there are three tiers of building height and plot ratio limits proposed being, Primary, Tier 1 and Tier 2. This tiered system allows for approval of developments above the Primary limits, where the proposal meets a number of requirements. One of the key requirements is the provision of a public benefit contribution by the developer. The contribution can be provided on site, or as a monetary contribution that can be paid to the City to fund projects in the SPACP area. 
    3. The Transport and Movement Analysis prepared for the South Perth Activity Centre Plan recommended traffic signals along Labouchere Road at Angelo Street and Richardson Street including pedestrian phases. The signals are intended to discourage through vehicle traffic while also supporting movement of pedestrians across Labouchere Road, between the Zoo, existing parks and car parking areas.
