26 Maritana Road, Kallaroo – Extension of time (one new grouped dwelling)


The City has received and is currently assessing an extension of time application for one new single storey dwelling at the abovementioned property.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed by clicking the link below.

All residential development in the City of Joondalup is required to meet the requirements of the Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes) and the City’s Residential Development Local Planning Policy. Both are divided up into different ‘design elements’ (for example; site area, street setbacks, street walls and fences, open space, building height, parking, landscaping).

For all ‘design elements’, there are objectives that need to be met. There are two different ways that can be used to assess if the objectives are being met – known as ‘deemed-to-comply standards’ and ‘design principles’.

If the proposal meets the deemed-to-comply standards, it is automatically considered to meet the objective and should be approved in accordance with the requirements of the R-Codes.

Where the deemed-to-comply standards are not met, this does not necessarily mean that the proposal does not meet the objective. Instead, the City needs to exercise some judgement (referred to as ‘discretion’) in considering whether the proposal meets the design principles, which may result in a better built form outcome than a proposal which has met the ‘deemed-to-comply’ requirements.

In this circumstance the applicant is proposing a number of discretions with regards to the following design elements:

  • Visitor parking
  • Vehicle access
  • Site works
  • Retaining walls.

The previous development (planning) application was approved by the City under delegated authority on 5 July 2017 with the abovementioned discretions. No modifications are proposed to the development from that previously approved.

The current approval is only valid until 5 July 2019, and therefore the applicant has requested an extension to the approval period an additional 12 months.

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by 26 June 2019.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process and if you choose to make a submission, you will be notified of the outcome of the proposal.

Submissions can be sent to the City via info@joondalup.wa.gov.au or posted to PO Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

For assistance in reviewing the plans or for more information on this proposal, contact the City on 9400 4100 or visit the City’s Administration Centre located at 90 Boas Avenue, Joondalup.
