Council backs LPS5 but opposes Minister’s Rezoning Modifications
The City of Subiaco will ask the Minister for Planning, Rita Saffioti, not to proceed with modifications to Local Planning Scheme 5 beyond those already approved by the Council with widespread community support.
The draft LPS5 that Council unanimously endorsed to return to the WAPC in mid-2019 after exhaustive community consultation and more than sixteen hundred public submissions which garnered community support for a Planning Scheme that far exceeded the government’s housing infill targets.
The special meeting of Council, held on 6 January, called to consider the Minister’s determination on LPS5, announced on the 18th of December 2019, welcomed the removal of blanket density imposed by the Western Australian Planning Commission, in which more than sixteen hundred lots in Shenton Park and Daglish were earmarked for high density, threatening character and heritage areas. However, Council’s view is that further modifications ordered by the Minister imposing high density zoning changes to small areas on Onslow Road and near the Shenton Park and Daglish train stations, are not the best outcome for the City or the affected residents.
