South Perth Station Precinct

The South Perth Station Precinct (SPSP) is ideally situated two kilometres across the Swan River from the Perth CBD and is well serviced by excellent transport networks including the freeway and bus and ferry service. In the future, it is hoped that the state government will construct a South Perth railway station at Richardson Street to service Perth Zoo, local businesses and residents.

The South Perth Station Precinct includes all land between Richardson and Darley Streets to the south and east, and Scott Street and Frasers Lane to the north.

Place + Design: South Perth Station Precinct

The City is working on a place and design study for the South Perth Station Precinct (SPSP), in collaboration with community members and other stakeholders.

A primary focus of the study is to review the existing vision (developed in 2011 with the Western Australian Planning Commission as part of the South Perth Station Precinct Plan) against the community’s current aspirations for the SPSP.

The project will build on the existing vision, consultant research and stakeholder input to date, and also considers development that is currently occurring in the area. Its primary focus will be on improving liveability, community benefit and built form outcomes within the SPSP.

There are a range of ways that community members can contribute throughout this process from February to April 2017, and ultimately help shape the future of the SPSP. Visit to stay up to date or get involved with the project.

2011 South Perth Station Precinct Plan and Vision

The South Perth Station Precinct Plan (2011) was commissioned by the City of South Perth and the Western Australian Planning Commission.

The vision of the South Perth Station Precinct Plan is to create a vibrant, attractive business location featuring a rich choice of employment, public transport options, pedestrian friendly tree-lined streets, with reminders of South Perth’s heritage.

Redevelopment and renewal opportunities should facilitate:

  • An appropriate scale and height in order to deliver a vibrant and robust urban environment
  • A dynamic mix of office, retail and other non-residential land uses, providing an attractive employment centre that is supported by residential development and public transport
  • A limited level of additional residential development to provide passive surveillance and to support the local services and street level activity
  • An active and enhanced public domain that highlights the scenic qualities of the precinct and its unique heritage character
  • An active and pedestrian-friendly environment that creates a unique and identifiable sense of place
  • A memorable network of public and private spaces that contributes to a rich urban fabric and provides a community focus.
