Revision – Draft New Development Standards for Housing Opportunity Areas

Categories:

The City of Joondalup is seeking community feedback on Draft New Development Standards for the 10 infill areas of the City of Joondalup, known as Housing Opportunity Areas.

The draft new development standards include restrictions on the number of multiple dwellings (apartments) that can be built in some areas; new standards for landscaping areas and trees, car parking, setbacks from property boundaries; as well as other development standards that aim to better manage the impact of infill development.

The draft new development standards have been included in two separate documents — a draft Development in Housing Opportunity Areas Local Planning Policy and an associated amendment to the City’s planning scheme (Scheme Amendment No 5).

The documents do not propose to change the boundaries of the Housing Opportunity Areas and they do not propose any changes to the density codes in Housing Opportunity Areas.

The draft new development standards will replace the standards of the City’s existing Residential Development Local Planning Policy that currently apply to Housing Opportunity Areas. Therefore, the Residential Development Local Planning Policy needs to be amended to delete the standards relating to Housing Opportunity Areas.

If you wish to make a submission on the Draft New Development Standards for Housing Opportunity Areas and/or the proposed changes to the City’s Residential Development Local Planning Policy, you are encouraged to complete the Online Submission Form. Alternatively, you can submit written feedback via email or via post to City of Joondalup, PO Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.
