Council Adopts 10-Year Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan

The Joondalup Council endorsed the new 10-Year Strategic Community Plan, Joondalup 2032, and the updated 5-Year Corporate Business Plan at its June meeting.

Joondalup 2032 represents the culmination of extensive community consultation and research which commenced in early-2020, including:

  • meetings of the City’s Strategic Community Reference Group;
  • a community survey with 841 respondents;
  • 10 community workshops;
  • polling at 4 City events;
  • Elected Members workshops/sessions; and
  • written submissions on the draft plan.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said that in total more than 1,500 community members shared their views with the City.

“This makes Joondalup 2032 a true community document,” Mayor Jacob said.

“It is a 10-Year Strategic Community Plan that articulates a shared vision for the future of the City of Joondalup.

“The Plan is our highest-level planning document, sitting within a detailed Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework which includes comprehensive Informing, Resourcing, Planning and Reporting components.”

The 5-Year Corporate Business Plan is for the period from 2022/23 to 2026/27.

“In developing this medium-term Plan, we have reviewed our existing Plan and realigned this to the new 10-Year Strategic Community Plan,” Mayor Jacob said.

“Whilst the 10-Year Strategic Community Plan articulates the overall vision and aspirations of the community over the next 10 years, the 5-Year Corporate Business Plan provides the operational detail, including the priorities, services, projects and activities that we will deliver to meet the longer-term vision of Joondalup 2032.

“The 5-Year Corporate Business Plan provides clear quarterly milestones for the next financial year, as well as listing the annual performance measures to be reported through the Annual Report.

“The 10-Year Strategic Community Plan and the 5-Year Corporate Business Plan provide the high-level strategic direction to guide decision making over the next decade, and we are confident that they reflect the views of the community, meet all statutory requirements, and showcase best practice corporate reporting.”

 

19 Fernlea Street Warwick – Grouped Dwelling (three new dwellings)

The City has received and is currently assessing a planning application for the above.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed below.

As this proposal is considered to have a minimal impact on the broader area surrounding the subject property, notification letters relating to the proposal have only been sent to a selection of landowners and occupiers in the property’s immediate vicinity.

Higher density development in the City’s Housing Opportunity Areas is to meet the requirements of the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3, Development in Housing Opportunity Areas Local Planning Policy, and the State planning policy Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes).  Both policies 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 asking the City to exercise discretion with regards to the following design elements:

Unit 1

  • Boundary walls to three boundaries (north, south and west)
  • Boundary wall length, maximum and average height (internal only)
  • No operable windows to Bathroom
  • Distance from common property to major opening (Living/Meals)
  • Retaining wall in front setback greater than 0.5m
  • Retaining wall (excavation) over 0.5m within 1m of the south boundary

 Unit 2

  • Boundary walls to two boundaries (east and west)
  • Reduced open space
  • Reduced size of openable window for Study
  • Outdoor living area without roof cover
  • Reduced deep soil area provided for small trees

Unit 3

  • Boundary walls to two boundaries (east and south)
  • Reduced deep soil area provided for small trees
  • Retaining wall over 1m within 1.5m of the west boundary
  • Outdoor living area without roof cover

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by Thursday 21 July 2022.

Submissions can be made via the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below, an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process.

Council Approves 2022/23 Budget

The Joondalup Council has approved the City’s 2022/23 Budget at its June meeting, including an increase of 4.09% to the general rates charge.

The 2022/23 Budget has been influenced by a changed economic environment over the last 12 months, with significant movement in inflation and the first interest rate increases since 2010.

The economic environment of high inflation and interest rate rises is projected to persist in the immediate future. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant state of emergency continues to be a disruption to normal economic and social activity.

The 2022/23 Budget continues measures taken in 2020/21 to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the wider community, including the local economy, with rates revenue only marginally above 2019/20 rates levels.

The budget highlights include:

  • $3.5 million contribution to new Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club facility
  • $2.3 million to the Chichester Park clubroom redevelopment
  • $1.7 million to Ocean Reef Park toilets and changerooms reconstruction, irrigation upgrade and associated works, playspace renewal
  • $1.6 million to coastal shared path
  • $1.4 million to Joondalup Drive / Hodges Drive intersection upgrade
  • $1 million to Craigie Leisure Centre
  • $950,000 to Craigie Leisure Centre geothermal bore replacement
  • $814,000 to Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club redevelopment
  • $500,000 to Leafy City program

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said the 2022/23 Budget enables the City to continue to provide quality programs and services whilst minimising the rates burden for residents.

“On any fair measure, this is a responsible budget that allows the City of Joondalup to have one of the lowest rating levels in the State, both in terms of rate in the dollar and minimum rate levels,” Mayor Jacob said.

“The rates rise is significantly lower than CPI and it is also lower than the increase to the State Government’s Emergency Services Levy, which the City collects on their behalf.

“Two-thirds of residential properties will be charged a general rates levy lower than in 2019-20, due to the pandemic relief measures that the City first undertook in 2020-21.

“We understand that residents have been impacted by cost of living pressures, but local governments are not immune to price increases. Whether it be fuel for the City’s fleet, utilities such as power and water at City facilities or invoices for work and materials, costs have increased significantly in the current market.

“There are some exciting projects on the horizon, including continued progress on the Ocean Reef Marina and Craigie Leisure Centre upgrades, as well as the much-needed redevelopment of the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club.

“I encourage residents to visit the City’s website for more information on these and other works to be undertaken over the City’s 22 suburbs in the next 12 months.”

City of Joondalup ratepayers can sign up to the eRates service to receive their 2022/23 rates notices and instalment reminders by email rather than by post. Register on the City’s website.

Residents are also reminded that in 2022/23 they will be able to download the annual waste guide, greens tipping and shredded green waste (mulch) vouchers directly from the City’s website from Friday 1 July 2022.

Residents who require assistance to download their vouchers and access the guide online can visit any of the City’s Libraries and the Customer Service team at the administration building (90 Boas Avenue, Joondalup). Print copies are also available on request.

12 Campbell Drive, Hillarys – Single House (balcony addition)

The City has received and is currently assessing a planning application for the above.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed below.

As this proposal is considered to have a minimal impact on the broader area surrounding the subject property, notification letters relating to the proposal have only been sent to a selection of landowners and occupiers in the property’s immediate vicinity.

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 asking the City to exercise discretion with regards to the following design elements:

  • Reduced privacy setback (balcony).

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by Wednesday 13 July 2022.

Submissions can be made via the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below, an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process.

2022/23 Waste Services Guide and Tipping Vouchers FAQ

What has changed?

The City is taking new measures to enhance its reputation as WA’s leading local government when it comes to environmental sustainability.

 In 2022/23, residents will be able to download the annual Waste Services Guide, greens tipping and shredded green waste (mulch) vouchers directly from the City’s website.  This will save approximately 1.5 tonnes of paper.

Why the change?

The City receives many phone calls throughout the year from new residents and those that cannot find their waste services guide and vouchers.

This change enables the City’s residents to download the vouchers when they need them.

How does the new system work?

The Waste Services Guide is available on the City’s website.  From Friday 1 July 2022 residents can visit joondalup.wa.gov.au/greenstippingvouchers and request their greens tipping and shredded green waste (mulch) vouchers by completing the online form with name, address and email address. The vouchers will automatically be sent via email and can be downloaded to a smart device and are immediately ready for use.

Vouchers then only need to be shown on a phone or iPad at the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility for the QR code to be scanned (along with a valid ID to show proof of address, if requested).

I don’t have a smart device, what can I use?

Residents will be able to print the vouchers out at home and take to the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility to be scanned upon entry.

I don’t have a printer, what can I do?

Physical copies of both the guide and vouchers will be provided upon request for residents without the ability or support to access guides or vouchers electronically.

Assistance is also available at any one of the City’s Libraries or from the Customer Service team at the administration building should residents require assistance.

Can my mower man still use them?

As per previous years your mower man can present your pass with a letter from the resident stating that they are your contractor and have permission to use the pass.

Can I get a physical copy sent to me?

We also know that one size does not always fit all, as such, printed copies of both will be available to residents upon request by contacting the City’s Customer Care team on 9400 4255.

More information on the 2022/23 waste guide and tip passes will be available at joondalup.wa.gov.au/greenstippingvouchers from 1 July 2022.

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 asking the City to exercise discretion with regards to the following design elements:

Lot one

  • Reduced open space; and
  • Outdoor living area with greater than one third permanent roof cover;

Lot two

  • Reduced lot boundary setbacks to the west side boundary;
  • Reduced open space; and
  • Outdoor living area with greater than one third permanent roof cover.

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by Friday 1 July 2022.

Submissions can be made via the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below, an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process.

Waste Guide and tipping vouchers go online

The City of Joondalup is taking new measures to enhance its reputation as WA’s leading local government when it comes to environmental sustainability.

In 2022/23, residents will be able to download the annual waste guide directly from the City’s website, saving about 1.5 tonnes of paper every year.

Greens tipping and shredded green waste (mulch) vouchers will also move to an online format.

Vouchers only need to be shown on a phone or iPad at the recycling facility for the QR code to be scanned (along with a valid ID to show proof of address, if requested).

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said sustainability was an important focus for the City and these simple measures could make a big difference.

“The City has programs to ensure the sustainable use of natural resources and we are always trying to improve,” he said.

“Putting the waste guide and tipping vouchers online will save an enormous amount of paper.

“We receive many calls from residents who have misplaced their tipping vouchers each year, so, for the majority, the move to an online system will be far more convenient.”

Mayor Jacob said the City’s commitment to environmental management was recognised locally, nationally and internationally as best practice.

“The City’s Waste Management Plan aims to minimise waste to landfill through sustainable waste management practices which incorporate reduce, re-use, recovery, and recycling principles,” he said.

“The City has been working towards waste reduction goals for a number of years, for example bringing in the three-bin system to reduce waste going to landfill.”

Residents can get help to download their voucher and access the guide online at any of the City Libraries and from the Customer Service team at the Administration building

Print copies will also be available on request.

The City is considering other ways to minimise the amount of paper being sent to residents.

Ratepayers are encouraged to sign up to a paperless system via the City’s e-rates platform in the lead-up to the issuing of rates notices in the next few weeks.

Other measures will be promoted on the City’s website and social media platforms.

More information on the 2022/23 waste guide and tip passes available at joondalup.wa.gov.au/greenstippingvouchers

Vouchers will be available 1 July 2022.

Draft Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy

The City is seeking feedback on proposed draft Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy.

Why was a Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy developed?

In February 2021, amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 (LPS Regulations) came into effect as part of the State Government’s reform of the planning system.  The amendments included the exemption from the need to obtain development (planning) approval for several types of minor development, where specific conditions are met.

Given the changes to the LPS Regulations and the City’s existing policies related to minor development, it was considered appropriate to develop a new policy to address minor residential development.

What does the Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy propose?

The draft Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy:

  • provides development objectives for the minor residential development that is listed in the draft policy;
  • includes criteria to assess applications for minor residential development where the development does not meet the exemption conditions in the LPS Regulations; and
  • consolidates several existing policies that address minor development into one policy, including the existing cubby house, satellite dishes/aerial, and sea container policies.

How do I make a submission?

Submissions can be made using the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below (preferred), via an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919. All submissions must be in writing and include your full name and address.

What happens after I make a submission?

After the close of the advertising period, the proposal and the submissions received will be considered at a future Council meeting. If you choose to make a submission and elect to be kept informed on the progress of the application, you will be notified of the Council meeting date when confirmed.

Council will make a determination on whether to proceed with the draft policy with or without modifications, or not proceed with the draft policy.

Where can I get more information?

The draft Minor Residential Development Local Planning Policy can be viewed below.

A report on the proposal was presented to Council on 17 May 2022 outlining the draft policy and reasons for the policy and is available here.

When does the consultation period close?

Submissions will be accepted: 16 June 2022 to 7 July 2022.

Proposed Amendments to the Planning Consultation Local Planning Policy

The City is proposing amendments to the Planning Consultation Local Planning Policy and you are invited to comment on the proposal.

What are the proposed amendments to the Planning Consultation Local Planning Policy?

It is proposed to amend the policy to align with changes made to the way consultation can be undertaken in accordance with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 (LPS Regulations) and provide clarification on consultation for development applications that do not require approval under the local planning scheme. The proposed amendments include:

  • modifications in response to changes to the LPS Regulations, being:
    • a new designation of certain types of development applications as ‘complex’, with greater consultation requirements, including a 28 day consultation period.
    • development applications that are not designated ‘complex’ being advertised for a period of 14 days, being the maximum permitted.
    • aligning the wording for consultation over the Christmas and Easter holiday period with the LPS Regulations, adding additional time for comments to be made on consultation over these periods.
    • increasing the consultation period for structure plans to 42 days.
    • removing the requirements for notification on the City/Library noticeboards for strategic proposals.
    • amending the requirement for a notice in the local newspaper for strategic proposals to be required where appropriate.
  • a position on consultation where development is exempt under the local planning scheme and the City is not the responsible authority.
  • consultation requirements for minor development in response to the draft Minor Development Local Planning Policy.

All proposed amendments are outlined in the attachments below.

How do I make a submission?

Greens Tipping Vouchers 2022/23

2022/2023 Greens waste vouchers now available to download

The City of Joondalup is taking new measures to enhance its reputation as WA’s leading local government when it comes to environmental sustainability.

In 2022/23, residents will be able to download the annual waste guide directly from the City’s website, saving about 1.5 tonnes of paper every year.

From Friday 1 July Tipping vouchers will include a unique QR code that can be downloaded onto a smart device to be shown and scanned at the Recycling Centre.

Vouchers only need to be shown on a phone or iPad at the recycling facility for the QR code to be scanned (along with a valid ID to show proof of address, if requested).

City Libraries and the Customer Service team at the administration building can assist residents to download their voucher and access the guide online.

Print copies will also be available on request.

Green waste tipping

The City issues residents with four green waste Tipping vouchers per year, for use at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre. Resident can dispose of up to 500kgs of green waste per tipping voucher.

These vouchers are valid for a financial year and can only be used on weekends and public holidays at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre. Entry fees will apply without a valid voucher.

As the green waste is shredded and turned into mulch it is extremely important to make sure there are no other items mixed into the green waste such as, sand, treated timber, building rubble or concrete.

PLEASE NOTE: Any commercial services using residential vouchers for greens tipping will need a letter from the resident whose property the greens are from when presenting the vouchers for use at Wangara Greens Recycling.

Free mulch

The greens processed at the Wangara greens recycling facility is shredded and turned into mulch. This mulch is available for use on your gardens to keep the moisture in the soil from evaporating and adds organic matter to the soil.

Pick up your free mulch, using your mulch vouchers, from Wangara Greens Recycling Facility. Mulch can be collected in trailers or utes which must be covered by tarpaulins and secured with rope.

Fees apply without a valid tipping or mulch voucher.

The Wangara Greens Recycling Centre is owned and run by the City of Wanneroo. Please visit the City of Wanneroo website for opening times and COVID restrictions.

For further information, read the 2022/23 Waste Services Guide and Tipping Vouchers FAQs.

Greens Tipping Vouchers 2022

22 Clevedon Place, Kallaroo – Grouped Dwelling (new two-storey dwelling)

The City has received and is currently assessing a planning application for the above.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed below.

As this proposal is considered to have a minimal impact on the broader area surrounding the subject property, notification letters relating to the proposal have only been sent to a selection of landowners and occupiers in the property’s immediate vicinity.

Higher density development in the City’s Housing Opportunity Areas is to meet the requirements of the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3, Development in Housing Opportunity Areas Local Planning Policy, and the State planning policy Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes). Both policies 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 asking the City to exercise discretion with regards to the following design elements:

  • Reduced upper floor lot boundary setbacks to the west boundary;
  • Increased boundary wall average height to the south side boundary;
  • Boundary walls to two boundaries being west (internal) and south;
  • Reduced landscaping area;
  • No operable window to the PDR (powder room);
  • Three small trees proposed in lieu of one medium tree;
  • Size of openable windows to Bedrooms two and three;
  • Reduced minimum room dimension for the living room;
  • Reduced ceiling heights to the ground and upper floor habitable rooms;
  • Reduced landscape area; and
  • Reduced privacy setback to the internal boundary (retained dwelling).

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by Friday, 24 June 2022.

Submissions can be made via the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below, an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process.

Closure of Moolanda Footbridge

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the footbridge over Moolanda Boulevard closed?

Each year the City is required to undertake routine visual inspection of all its bridges and underpasses. For a number of years, these inspections have highlighted rotting and fungal activities on the Moolanda footbridge’s timber member.

An interim detailed inspection of the footbridge was undertaken by Main Roads WA (MRWA) in September 2020 on behalf of the City whereby good solid timber was found to sufficiently hold the bridge up. A full detailed inspection was being scheduled by MRWA to be undertaken as part of their annual program.

However since then, there has been major and rapid deterioration of some members of the timber footbridge over the last 12 to 18 months resulting in a risk of the bridge failing if subjected to loads. Upon advice received from MRWA and in the interest of public safety, the City made the difficult decision to close access to the footbridge at the end of April 2022.

When will the footbridge over Moolanda Boulevard be open again?

The City is currently working with MRWA to design a temporary solution involving the propping of the existing timber footbridge that should allow the bridge to be reopened by late-2022, whilst a more permanent solution is being investigated and funding obtained.

Will the timber footbridge remain or be replaced?

The advice the City received from MRWA, which was informed by an independent structural assessment, suggested that the timber footbridge’s condition is beyond repair and as such will require replacement.

The new footbridge will be designed to meet the relevant Australian Standards and continue to serve as a vital link in the City’shared path network.

When will the new footbridge be constructed?

Construction of any bridge takes significant planning and development. The City is currently working with MRWA to commence the process of a full detailed design of the new footbridge.

Upon completion of the detailed design, the City will engage a specialist contractor to remove the existing and construct the new footbridge. The footbridge will be required to be closed again to facilitate these works.

At this stage, and all things going well, the City is hopeful that a new footbridge will be completed by late-2023 in accord to the following broad timeline:

  • Mid to late 2022: Temporary propping works arrange
  • Late 2022: Re-opening of existing timber footbridge
  • Mid 2022 – mid 2023: New footbridge planning and development occurs
  • Mid – late 2023: New footbridge construction and opening

What detours are in place?

Whist the footbridge is closed, detours will be in place directing users to to cross Moolanda Boulevard at-grade located down the entry ramps either side of the bridge. Please follow the signage provided onsite and be courteous to other path users.

Further interim improvements to detours and crossings will be introduced as the project develops.

Draft Currambine Local Development Plan – Lot 9001 (16) Sunlander Drive, Currambine

The City of Joondalup has received the above draft local development plan prepared by Rowe Group (planning consultants) on behalf of the property owners Southern Cross Care.

Your comments are invited on the draft local development plan.

What is a local development plan?

A local development plan is a document that sets out the development standards for the future development of a site.

Why has a local development plan been prepared?

A local development plan has been prepared by the applicant as it is required as a condition of the subdivision approval issued by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).

What does the draft local development plan propose?

The draft local development plan contains provisions that allow the development of two storey single residential attached dwellings with double garages. It proposes to replace some of the development standards in the Residential Design Codes that would otherwise apply to the development.

The existing residential density code of the site is R80, the draft local development plan does not change this. Subdivision approval has already been granted by the WAPC for the subdivision of the site into residential lots. The draft local development plan applies to 81 lots.

How do I make a submission?

Submissions can be made using the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below (preferred), via an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919. All submissions must be in writing and include your full name and address.

What happens after I make a submission?

After the close of the advertising period, the proposal and the submissions received will be considered at a future Council meeting. If you choose to make a submission and elect to be kept informed on the progress of the application, you will be notified of the Council meeting date when confirmed.

Council can resolve to either approve the draft local development plan, require the draft local development plan to be modified or refuse the draft local development plan. As the draft LDP proposes to modify development provisions of the Residential Design Codes that must be approved by the WAPC, it will be forwarded to the WAPC following consideration by Council.

Where can I get more information?

The draft local development plan and associated documents can be viewed at the links below or can be viewed at the City of Joondalup administration office located at 90 Boas Avenue, Joondalup during business hours.

10 Monkhouse Way, Hillarys – Grouped Dwellings (three new dwellings)

The City has received and is currently assessing a planning application for the above.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed below.

As this proposal is considered to have a minimal impact on the broader area surrounding the subject property, notification letters relating to the proposal have only been sent to a selection of landowners and occupiers in the property’s immediate vicinity.

Higher density development in the City’s Housing Opportunity Areas is to meet the requirements of the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3, Development in Housing Opportunity Areas Local Planning Policy, and the State planning policy Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes). Both policies 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.

186A Bridgewater Drive, Kallaroo – Proposed Grouped Dwelling (new two-storey dwelling)

The City has received and is currently assessing a planning application for the above.

A copy of the development plans can be viewed below.

As this proposal is considered to have a minimal impact on the broader area surrounding the subject property, notification letters relating to the proposal have only been sent to a selection of landowners and occupiers in the property’s immediate vicinity.

Higher density development in the City’s Housing Opportunity Areas is to meet the requirements of the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3, Development in Housing Opportunity Areas Local Planning Policy, and the State planning policy Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes). Both policies 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 asking the City to exercise discretion with regards to the following design elements:

  • Increased boundary wall height;
  • Walls to two boundaries;
  • No openable window to the powder room (PDR);
  • The size of the window to bedroom three and the openable proportion of it;
  • Three small trees proposed in lieu of one medium tree;
  • Reduced living room dimension;
  • Reduced landscaping area; and
  • Reduced deep soil area dimension provided for one or more small tree(s).

You may wish to provide a submission on the proposal, as a written comment, by Wednesday 8 June 2022.

Submissions can be made via the online Planning Consultation Submission Form below, an email or via post to P.O. Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.

Submissions will be considered as part of the overall decision-making process.

Mural project with Sioux Tempestt

The Whitford Library foyer is being transformed by artist in residence, Sioux Tempestt. Sioux creates abstract, mural, sculptural and digital art and several of her large-scale murals can be found throughout Perth.

Community workshops were held with seniors, schools and children throughout June to develop concepts for the mural. In the next phase of the project, Sue will set up her workshop as Artist in Residence in the Whitford Library meeting room from Monday 27 June to Tuesday 12 July.

You are invited to drop in and visit Sioux every Monday and Tuesday between Monday 27 June and Tuesday 12 July. Sioux will be developing the ideas from the workshops into her distinctive style. See how the project goes from a concept to the finished piece, and what it looks like ‘in the middle’ when the magic is being created. The  developing designs of the project will be on display as well as some examples of her previous work in an impromptu gallery.

Sioux will be holding a free Discovery Session to share the creative process she engages, her inspiration and artistic achievements.
