About this project

On 15 December 2020, the City of Subiaco Council resolved to prepare a draft Local Development Plan (LDP) for the area bound by Roberts Road, Rokeby Road, Hay Street and Catherine Street, known as Seddon Street Precinct. You can view the Council report and the minutes of the 15 December 2020 meeting here.

The draft Seddon Street Precinct LDP holistically considers the future development of the Seddon Street Precinct and includes provisions relating to built form, the movement network, and public benefits.

Key stakeholders were involved in the preparation of the vision and LDP development concept through three stakeholder workshops, with broader community opportunities to provide input at two community listening posts. The community and stakeholder outcomes are recorded in the Engagement Outcomes Report (111MB).

Key provisions in the draft LDP are summarised as follows:

  • The vision sees the precinct as an urban oasis full of character that offers a mix of land uses, is well connected, pedestrian and cyclist friendly and focuses on all generations.
  • Setback controls for upper floors allow for sunlight penetration to the public realm and create pedestrian colonnades at ground floor to contribute to a pedestrian-friendly environment.
  • Vehicle movements are kept at the periphery of the precinct.
  • The draft LDP responds to the State and locally listed heritage properties on Catherine Street by keeping the interface at two storeys. The Heritage Impact Assessment concludes that the draft LDP does not result in any adverse impact on Subiaco Hotel, Regal Theatre and Rokeby Road and Hay Street Heritage Area.

The Seddon Street Precinct Context and Technical Analysis Report provides an explanation and rationale for the draft LDP and can be accessed in the document library.

How can I be involved?

Public consultation on the draft LDP is now closed. The City sought feedback on the draft Local Development Plan (LDP).

You can:

Consultation closed at 5pm on Friday 19 February 2021.


What's next

Following the public advertising process, Council will consider the submissions received and any recommended modifications before making a final decision.
