Local Planning Scheme Amendment No. 11 to Local Planning Scheme No. 10

Consultation has concluded

25 June 2019

The Town of Bassendean seeks community comment on a proposal to amend the Local Planning Scheme.

The proposed amendment seeks to amend Table 1 – Zoning Table of the Town's Local Planning Scheme No. 10 to modify the land use permissibility of ‘Convenience Store’ and ‘Service Station’ in the ‘Town Centre’ and ‘Local Shopping’ zones to use that is not permitted (X) within these zones.

The amended zoning table will read as follows:


Use class
Zones

Town Centre Zone
Local Shopping Zone
Convenience Store
X
X
Service Station
X
X


Background:

The Convenience Store land use activity is currently considered a ‘P’ land use and a Service Station is considered an ‘A’ land use within the Town Centre and Local Shopping zones. These land use activities often create conflict with adjoining land uses.

Subsequently Council, at its Ordinary Meeting on 17 December 2018, unanimously resolved to:

  1. Commence the process of changing the permitted use of properties zoned Local Shopping Centre to prohibit development of ‘Convenience Stores Providing for the Sale of Fuel and Convenience Goods’ and ‘Service Stations’ at undesirable locations within the Town; and
  2. Commence the process of changing the permitted use of properties zoned Town Centre to prohibit development of ‘Convenience Stores Providing for the Sale of Fuel and Convenience Goods’ and ‘Service Stations’ at undesirable locations within the Town’s Central Business District.”

Community concerns were expressed about the sale of fuel and petroleum products and their proximity to adjoining and nearby sensitive land uses. This was highlighted with an application for a Convenience Store (which includes the provision for the sale of fuel and petroleum products) at Lot 75 (No. 72) Walter Road East (Corner Marion Street), Eden Hill. The application was ultimately refused at a meeting of the Metro Central Joint Development Assessment Panel on 27 November 2018. The minuted reasons for refusal suggested it is timely for the Town to review permitted land uses to assess the suitability of these types of businesses in various locations with a view to minimize potential conflicts between adjoining land uses and road networks.

What will happen next?

All submissions will be reviewed. The proposal will then be referred back to Council for consideration. Should Council resolve to adopt the amendment, the amendment will be forwarded through to the Western Australian Planning Commission and Minister for Planning, Lands and Heritage for determination.

Have Your Say:

Submissions on the planning scheme amendment may be lodged in writing and should include the amendment number, the property affected, and details of the submission, and lodged with the Town on or before 25 June 2019. Submissions should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Town of Bassendean via post to PO Box 87, Bassendean 6934, in person at 35 Old Perth Road, Bassendean or via email to mail@bassendean.wa.gov.au.
