Forrestfield/High Wycombe Industrial Area

Local Structure Plan

The Forrestfield / High Wycombe Industrial Area Stage 1 Local Structure Plan (LSP) was adopted in 2012. Council considered modifications to the LSP at its meeting on 25 September 2017, recommending the following amendments to the LSP:

  • Reducing the minimum lot sizes for Lots 3-6 Ashby Close, Lots 50-52 Sultana Road West and Lot 547 Berkshire Road from 1 hectare to 2000m²;
  • Revised road and movement network plans; and
  • Introducing additional development standards to support composite residential/land uses on Lot 50 Sultana Road West.

In April 2018 the Western Australian Planning Commission supported all modifications to the LSP, except for:

  • The minimum lot size provision of 2000m² for Lots 3-6 Ashby Close, Lots 50-52 Sultana Road West and Lot 547 Berkshire Road.
  • The land use identification of Lot 50 Sultana Road West from Special Use to Industrial Development and the associated composite development.

In May 2018 the Minister for Transport, Planning and Lands approved Amendment 91, which incorporates a Special Use zone over Lot 50 (170) Sultana Road West to require a composite Residential/Light Industry land use outcome. Given the intent of this amendment was to enable subdivision for the composite land uses, which is inconsistent with the WAPC’s earlier decision, the City sought reconsideration from the WAPC.

In October 2018 the WAPC advised the City that it would support subdivision with minimum lot size of 3,000m² and composite development criteria for Lot 50 Sultana Road West only.

The City is in the process of making the changes to the LSP, it is expected that the final version of the LSP will be published in early 2019.

Development Contribution Plan

The Development Contribution Plan (DCP) outlines the costs of infrastructure within the development contribution area and sets the rate payable by developers to contribute to delivery of infrastructure. The DCP is administered through Schedule 12 of the Local Planning Scheme N0.3.

The 2017/18 review to the DCP Report resulted in a contribution rate reduction from $29.79/m2 to $17.01/m2. The rate reduction was primarily due to the following factors:

  • Utility relocations have been further investigated.
  • Utility relocations are now included within the respective road estimates.
  • Infrastructure upgrades to Dundas Road are no longer required given the review of the infrastructure framework and as such no utility relocations are required on Dundas Road.

The new rate of $17.01/m2 was adopted at the 3 December 2018 Special Council Meeting.

Design Guidelines/Vision Statement

The intent of the guidelines is to ensure development in the industrial area will be of a high standard which is attractive, functional and sustainable which will attract a range of companies eager to locate in the area given the strategic locational attributers of the area.

The purpose of the vision statement is to show graphically how the industrial area is proposed to be developed and to provide context to the area.

The Design Guidelines were adopted by Council in August 2012.

The Design Guidelines have been reviewed and Council adopted the revised Design Guidelines for the purpose of Public Advertisement on 30 April 2019.
