Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 42

The City of Canning’s Town Planning Scheme No. 40 was gazetted on 14 February 1994, and is now over 24 years old. Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 42 has been closely informed by the Local Planning Strategy 2017, a suite of supplementary planning strategies, the Strategic Community Plan, as well as the Planning and Development Act 2005 and the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015.

Most reserves, zones and land uses from the current Town Planning Scheme No. 40 are carried across into draft Local Planning Scheme No. 42, with the structure of both Schemes being generally the same. Consistent with the Local Planning Strategy, some key changes included in draft Local Planning Scheme No. 42 are:

  • Introduction of ‘urban corridors’ along Albany Highway and Manning Road. These corridors include densities of R80 and R60 and some R100 in the vicinity of Albany and Leach Highways, and are intended to allow more intensive development in close proximity to good public transport infrastructure.
  • A marginal increase in density from the current R30 to R40 in parts of Bentley, St James and Wilson (north of Leach Highway) that are outside the Albany highway and Manning Road urban corridors. A multi-criteria analysis identified redevelopment potential in these areas, and an R40 density is considered to facilitate redevelopment of aging properties.
  • Introduction of an ‘urban corridor’ along Leach Highway from Webb Street to High Road, and along High Road, Willetton (between Leach Highway and Willeri Drive). This corridor increases the density of Residential-zoned properties to R40 (from R20 and R25), again to allow more intensive development close to public transport infrastructure connecting into Bull Creek Station.
  • A change in zoning for the Willetton Industrial Area from the existing Mixed Business zone to Light Industry (with the exception of properties between High Road and Roxby Lane, which will retain a Commercial zoning). Due to an underlying Metropolitan Region Scheme ‘Industrial’ zone, the City is restricted to applying an industrial zone to this area. Light Industry is considered the most appropriate zone based on existing land uses and the need to adequately manage impacts with surrounding Residential-zoned properties.
  • A density of R40 to Residential-zoned properties surrounding Riverton, Southlands and Livingston District Centres. This allows a marginal increase in intensity for developments close to these District-level commercial centres.
