The Packham North District Structure Plan covers a small area of North Coogee and Spearwood and was adopted by Council in 2011. The District Structure Plan addresses housing density expectations, land use mix and road layouts.
The Packham North area comprises 75 lots east of the Port Coogee development and is bound by Cross Road, Mell Road, Rockingham Road and the railway reserve, 19km south of the Perth CBD.
The District Structure Plan (DSP) was adopted by Council in August 2011. In 2014, the DSP was modified to allow residential development in the Mixed Business Zone. This will enable residential uses to be included in a future local structure plan.
Landowners and developers can progress local structure plans and subdivision plans for their respective land holdings within the Packham North District Structure Plan area. Local Structure Plans need to be endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) before landowners can progress to subdivision. The WAPC is responsible for processing and approving subdivision applications within the Packham North District Structure Plan, while the City of Cockburn provides an advisory role.
