New Planning Framework for Infill Development

The State Government has a strategy for the future development of Perth that aims to accommodate 47% of all new dwellings as infill development and has set residential infill targets for each local government. The City of Joondalup (the City) is required to have a Local Housing Strategy to show how the future housing needs of its community will be met and how it plans to achieve the residential infill target set for it by the State Government.

The City started developing its Local Housing Strategy in 2010 by identifying suitable areas for medium density. These areas are known as Housing Opportunity Areas (or HOAs) and were strategically selected, based on a set of criteria, including proximity to train stations, high frequency bus routes and activity centres.

Since early 2016, residents in HOAs have been able to redevelop their properties in line with the higher densities allocated to these areas. However, a number of residents are concerned about the development outcomes occurring in these areas and called on the City to review how infill development is managed. The City responded by engaging a specialist consultant team to review the City’s HOAs and to develop a new planning framework to guide high quality infill development.

Have your say

The HOA Planning Framework online survey, prepared by the specialist consulting team, is now open. The survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete and is open until 29 October 2018. Responses to the survey will be one source of information that will be used to inform the planning for infill development in the City of Joondalup. To obtain a hard copy of the survey please email HOAPlanningFramework@joondalup.wa.gov.au or call 9400 4019.

Community members are also encouraged to attend one of five pop-up Listening Posts where project team members will be on hand to hear the key issues and opportunities you wish to raise.
