Port Coogee Local Structure Plan

UPDATE ON PROPOSED MAJOR STRUCTURE PLAN AMENDMENT - WAPC DECISION

 

Council at the meeting of 12 November 2015 resolved to not support the proposed major amendment to the Port Coogee Structure Plan.  The proposal has now been referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission ("WAPC") for final decision.

 

The proposed amendment was considered by the WAPC Statutory Planning Committee ("SPC") meeting of 13 September 2016 whereby they resolved to require the proposed Port Coogee Structure Plan to be modified in accordance with a Schedule of Modifications and for the modified plan to resubmitted to the WAPC for approval. 

 

The proposed Structure Plan Amendment (as considered at the 13 September 2016 WAPC SPC Meeting) and the Schedule of Modifications can be viewed below.

 

The modified Structure Plan and associated report are yet to be submitted by the applicant to the WAPC for their approval, therefore at this stage a finalised adopted plan is not available.

 

The proposed modifications include changes to the density coding and building heights of Lot 9139L Maraboo Island, Port Coogee, as set out in the documents below.

 

 

 Background

 

The Port Coogee Local Structure Plan was adopted by Council 11 August 2005.  The State Administrative Tribunal endorsed the LSP on 20 May 2010.

 

The LSP provides for a mix of zones covering a total of 85.99 hectares (57.24ha on dry land area and 28.75ha of water area). A range of residential options has been planned for from single house lots through to large apartment buildings.

 

The centrepiece of the Port Coogee development is a private marina adjacent to a marina village providing for a range of commercial, retail and mixed business uses.  Buildings in the village will be up to eight storeys in height.

 

The LSP informs applications for both subdivision and development. Landowners looking to lodge subdivision or development proposals should also see whether their site is affected by a Detailed Area Plan which can be viewed on the City's intramaps system using the module 'Detailed Area Plans - Structure Plans'.
