South Perth Station Precinct

This project has come to an end. For more up to date information see the South Perth Station Precinct page on the City's website.


The South Perth Station Precinct is ideally situated two kilometres across the Swan River from the Perth CBD and is well serviced by excellent transport networks including the freeway, bus and ferry service. In the future, it is hoped that the state government will construct a South Perth railway station at Richardson Street, to service Perth Zoo, local businesses and residents. Development in the precinct will create demand for the train station and help make its construction worthwhile.

The South Perth Station Precinct includes all land between Richardson and Darley Streets to the south and east, and Scott Street and Frasers Lane to the north.

The vision of the South Perth Station Precinct Plan is to create a vibrant, attractive business location featuring a rich choice of employment, public transport options and pedestrian friendly tree-lined streets, with reminders of South Perth’s heritage.

South Perth Activity Centre Plan

The City is preparing an Activity Centre Plan for the South Perth Station Precinct and immediate surrounding area.

The Activity Centre Plan will provide the guiding framework (strategic vision and statutory framework) for the planning and development of the study area by taking a holistic, long term approach that can be updated over time to respond to current issues and community aspirations.

The Activity Centre Plan will guide movement and access, land use and built form within the activity centre.

This area is identified as a District Centre under the state planning framework, and as such an Activity Centre Plan is required to be prepared pursuant to Part 5, Schedule 2 (the Deemed Provisions) of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 (the Regulations) and State Planning Policy 4.2 Activity Centres for Perth and Peel (SPP 4.2). The preparation of an Activity Centre Plan is also a key recommendation of the South Perth Peninsula Place and Design Report (May 2017).

The draft Activity Centre Plan will be available for public comment following Council and Western Australian Planning Commission approval.
