Consultation has concluded


The City of Vincent is proposing an amendment to it’s Built Form Policy to better align with the new State Planning Framework and improve development outcomes across the City.

Positive development outcomes are important to us, so in 2016 we created the Built Form Policy. The policy provides guidance to developers, planners and decision makers to ensure that all new development fits in the local neighbourhood and responds to Vincent's local identity.

The Policy has been around for a while now and we’ve had a good chance to use and test it. Earlier this year the State Government released a new State Planning Policy, Design WA, to guide apartment development across Western Australia. It’s now time for us to update our Policy to reflect our learnings from the past three years and align it to Design WA.

The proposed changes to the Policy will align with Design WA and also focus on improving requirements relating to landscaping, setbacks, building design and environmentally sustainable design.

The full draft policy and tracked changes from the existing policy are available to view below.

To help you understand this amendment, we have prepared an information sheet outlining the major changes relating to five key areas.
