Key aspects of the Local Structure Plan include:

  • Providing for the orderly distribution of residential density and a range of housing types that address changing demographics and the needs of future populations within the north-west sector of the Perth Metropolitan Region.
  • Providing for sustainable environmental outcomes with respect to such matters as water use, energy efficiency, conservation and transport, while taking advantage of natural features and views.
  • Providing active commercial centres and community hubs that meet the daily and weekly needs of residents and provide employment opportunities that are co-located with local recreation and community facilities.
  • Providing an appropriate urban design response in recognition of adjoining public transport infrastructure.
  • A high level of linkage both within and beyond the boundaries of the Tamala Park landholding to commercial centres, coastal reserves and transport nodes via cycle and pedestrian access, public transport and private vehicle.
  • Addressing the forecast demand for a variety of community services and social infrastructure.

The major land use elements of the Local Structure Plan are set out as follows:

Local Structure Plan Amendment - Catalina Grove

The TPRC has been working on a review of the Local Structure Plan relating to the Grove Precinct with the objective of making it more contemporary and relevant to TPRC objectives.

The Tamala Park Local Structure Plan No.79 – Amendment No. 5 (Catalina Grove) has been lodged with the City of Wanneroo, based on design principles approved by the Council, including:

  •  Maximising tree canopy, including retention of existing significant trees, in pursuit of a canopy target of 20% by 2028;
  • The rationalisation of mixed-use zoned land consistent with market/economic conditions; and
  • The location of density in the north-eastern corner of the Precinct within a walkable catchment of the Clarkson Train Station.

 The advertising period for the LSP Amendment closed on 9 May 2019.

 It is anticipated that the LSP Amendment will be approved by the City of Wanneroo and Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) by December 2019.

 The TPRC will also be undertaking the following planning initiatives:

  • Catalina Beach - refining concepts, addressing the foreshore interface and potential development of a commercial/community node, optimal lot mix and typologies and opportunities for retention of native vegetation;
  • Catalina Grove - identification of the first subdivision area and optimal lot mix and typologies to launch the Grove Precinct;
  • Stage 18C Catalina Central - exploring opportunities for innovative design and a builder partnership;
  • Stage 16 Catalina Central - refinement of concepts for development.
