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:

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

The review is to address the following design principles:

  • Maximising tree canopy, retention of existing significant trees;
  • Achieving 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 walking catchment of the Clarkson Train Station.

It is expected that a formal Amendment to the Tamala Park Local Structure Plan No.79 will be lodged with the City of Wanneroo in early 2019.
