Background

The draft South Perth Activity Centre Plan (ACP) and associated proposed Town Planning Scheme Amendment 61 (Amendment 61) sets out the strategic vision and statutory planning requirements for development within the area that stretches from the tip of South Perth Peninsula to Richardson Park and Perth Zoo.

This area covers approximately 100 hectares, with a current population of 2,675 people.

The draft ACP and Amendment 61 provides:

  • A robust planning framework to manage development that accommodates forecast and required population and activity growth
  • Guidance to improve movement, connectivity, streetscapes and public open space within and around the centre

The documents take a holistic, long term approach that can be updated over time to respond to issues and community aspirations.

Previous Stakeholder Engagement and Council Resolution

The City undertook public consultation on the draft South Perth Activity Centre Plan (ACP) and associated proposed Town Planning Scheme Amendment 61 (Amendment 61) between May and August 2019. 

Council endorsed the ACP and Amendment 61 at its meeting on 17 December 2019. As a result of the extensive community engagement undertaken during 2019, a number of modifications were made to address key issues and further refine the draft documents.

A copy of the modified ACP and Amendment 61 documents, along with copies of all feedback received was sent to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for final approval.
