South Perth Activity Centre Plan
On 21 December 2021, the Minister for Planning approved Scheme Amendment 61 (Amendment 61) to the City of South Perth Town Planning Scheme No. 6. The South Perth Activity Centre Plan (ACP) was also approved on 21 December 2021 by the Western Australian Planning Commission.
The South Perth ACP and Amendment 61 set out the City’s strategic vision and statutory planning requirements for development in the area between South Perth Peninsula, Richardson Park and Perth Zoo.
Amendment 61 and the South Perth ACP applies to all new development. A copy of approved Amendment 61 and the South Perth ACP is available for download via the document library.
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.
