Determination:

Following the community consultation period that concluded on 21 January 2022, the applicant sought to address remaining concerns of the City as well as the community consultation submissions through the submission of amended development plans, written justification and amended technical reports on 16 March 2022.

The following key changes were provided in the amended plans:

  • Additional landscaping provided on the upper-level carpark including increased widths to planting areas, rooftop planting and the provision of two trees to the southern edge;
  • The addition of 12 trees within planting areas provided along the right-of-way (ROW). These trees are proposed as Espalier trees;
  • The provision of windows facing the ROW to provide passive surveillance to the ROW. These windows are provided at ground-level and therefore do not provide visual privacy concerns to the west;
  • Additional areas for public art opportunities identified. This includes a feature tiled wall facing Britannia Road as well as on the bulkhead of the supermarket facing Oxford Street;
  • Increase to long-term bicycle parking provided on-site & changes to the location of short-term bicycle bays within the verge.

Traffic

Over the course of the assessment, concerns were raised by the City regarding the modelling and content of the Traffic Impact Assessment submitted by the applicant in support of the proposed development. The applicant submitted the final revised TIA in March 2022. The impact on the road network has been analysed by the City’s road engineers, who, after the receipt of further information and modelling, have reviewed the information and concluded that the development can be accommodated within the functioning capacity of surrounding road network.

Noise

An amended Acoustic Report was also submitted in March 2022 that sought to address comments raised by the community as well as the City’s Technical Officer’s. The submitted findings of the amended Acoustic Report as well as additional measures recommended within the conditions of development approval would ensure off-site amenity impacts are reduced to preserve the amenity of existing and future surrounding developments.

Next Steps

Following a detailed assessment against the relevant planning framework, the City prepared a Responsible Authority Report (RAR) and provided a recommendation to the DAP on how the development should be determined.

The City has provided a recommendation of approval for the proposed development.

A copy of the agenda, including the City’s RAR, is available on the DAP website at the following link https://www.dplh.wa.gov.au/about/development-assessment-panels/daps-agendas-and-minutes

The final set of development plans were not re-advertised to the community as they did not result in additional departures to the relevant planning framework that could reasonably be considered to have an adverse impact on the adjoining properties or surrounding streetscape. These amended plans also did not result in a significantly different proposal to that which was previously advertised. The City’s response to all neighbour submissions is included in the City’s RAR.

The final development plans as well as the Applicant’s report and technical appendices are also available for public viewing as attached in the City’s RAR, available through the abovementioned link.

Please refer to the attached letter for all information in relation to the Development Assessment Panel meeting that is scheduled to be held on Friday 22 April 2022 at 9.30am at the City of Nedlands – 71 Stirling Highway Nedlands.
