South Perth Activity Centre Plan
The City has developed a draft South Perth Activity Centre Plan (ACP) and associated proposed Town Planning Scheme Amendment No. 61 to set 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 the Zoo. This area covers approximately 100 hectares, with a current population of 2,675 people.
The draft Plan 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
It takes a holistic, long term approach that can be updated over time to respond to issues and community aspirations.
A draft local planning policy (policy P321) has also been developed to set out the processes and requirements for undertaking a competitive design process to satisfy design quality requirements in the draft ACP and proposed Amendment No. 61.
Feedback closed on Monday 22 July. All feedback received will now be reviewed and the draft ACP, proposed Amendment No. 61 and Policy P321 will be modified as required before being presented to Council for approval later in the year.

The City’s vision for the South Perth Activity Centre was developed through the South Perth Peninsula Place & Design project in 2017:
A distinctive inner city activity centre, tourism destination and residential neighbourhood that is shaped by its connection to nature, unique assets, distinctive buildings, and future-forward approaches to sustainable living. Its lively centre and pedestrian friendly tree-lined streets connect locals and visitors to its diverse businesses, transport nodes and local heritage.
