West Leederville Precinct Policy

The West Leederville Precinct Policy was amended in 2012 to implement the directions under the West Leederville Activity Plan. Plot ratio bonuses were introduced to encourage new developments to incorporate elements of the West Leederville Activity Centre Plan.

Council adopted an amended West Leederville Precinct Policy at its Meeting on 24 February 2015, which primarily introduced Residential Interface Nodes (on the west side of Northwood Street and northern side of Cambridge Street) and development standards for the Nodes, to address building design where located on the boundary of existing residential areas and the West Leederville Activity Centre. The main changes included removal of plot ratio bonuses; reduced building heights (maximum 4 storeys) and increased boundary setbacks and landscaping requirements.

Scheme Amendment 27

At its meeting held on 29 April 2014, Scheme Amendment 27 was subject to final Council adoption.  

The Scheme Amendment introduces, among other things, zoning changes and development controls to accommodate the proposals adopted in the West Leederville Planning and Urban Design Study.

Amendment 27 is currently with the Western Australian Planning Commission for final approval.

Key elements of Amendment 27 that relate to the West Leederville Activity Centre include the introduction of:-

  • Mixed use zoning to allow residential and commercial developments;
  • Residential RAC-0 zoning for the Kerr Street to Abbotsford Street residential node which allows multiple dwellings in this area;
  • A Special Control Area for the area bound by Southport Street, Cambridge Street, Holyrood Street and the south boundary of properties on the south side of Tower Street to enable a more detailed Outline Development Plan to be prepared to guide future development in this area.

The proposed zoning map is available to view below.
