The Nyungar area now known as Subiaco, in Western Australia has a long and rich history with stories from the Early settlers and Benedictine monks, through the first and second world wars, as the state's home of Australian Rules Football for over 100 years, as the birthplace of many and as a vibrant, green group of inner-city suburbs. It has contributed so much to the fabric of Perth and is home to many important landmarks.

Subiaco has also consistently led the way in modelling what a successful, diverse, higher density, inner-city commercial and residential area can be. It is and always has been such a special and proud place and has one of the highest densities in the State!

Now the State Government and the City of Subiaco are planning to double the population of the City through rezoning and high-rise development. This is simply unjustified and will permanently destroy the City's unique historical village feel, character and amenity - the very things that make Subiaco so appealing to everyone who lives, works or visits here. 

Subiaco can achieve density targets without this destructive plan so don’t let it happen! Help us Save Subi and protect this important and precious place for current and future generations. This is a fight for us all, because you can’t replace history. Once it’s gone, its gone.

 What they’re Planning - Now...


Simply put, this new, modified plan still allows a doubling of the population and dwelling density that will result in high-rise blocks apartments abutting single storey character filled homes and streets. R100 zonings next to R20 zonings? Who does that? Well it seems our City's planners think its completely acceptable.

This plan will irrevocably change Subiaco amenity and appeal, forever. Throughout the town centre there are so many areas that we are not being clearly told what heights developers can build to, when they ask for bonus storeys or 'discretions'! And as for public open space, already at unhealthy low levels in Subiaco, where is the commensurate increase in public open space for all this extra density?

Refer to the zoning table above to help clarify just what's being proposed - that's a whole lotta high-rise in areas where it is not wanted - or needed!

AND WHAT IS THE CITY RECOMMENDING IN RESPONSE TO THE HUNDREDS OF SUBMISSIONS SENT IN BY RESIDENTS IN THIS LATEST ROUND OF PUBLIC COMMENT?

DO NOTHING!
MAKE NO CHANGES. APPARENTLY THEY'VE "HEARD IT ALL BEFORE".

 

So...

It's time to have some Community Meetings with Councillors

Between the 10th and 16th June 2019, a series of Community Meetings are being planned in the 4 Wards with Ward Councillors. Its an opportunity for residents to have a proactive and respectful discussion with their Ward representatives about how they want to be represented and what changes they would like to LPS5 before it goes to the WAPC. After all, a councillors primary role is to represent the will of their constituents, act in their best interest and direct staff to service the community accordingly.

Please join in these meetings and have your voice heard.

Is Your Home about to be Under Investigation?

Many residents, understandably, may not realise that hidden amongst the pages of the now Council endorsed Local Planning Strategy, which is soon heading to the WAPC for final determination and upon which LPS5 is based, is a map showing what is termed as 'Investigation Areas'.

They are the purple dashed lines in the map, the orange shaded areas are deemed 'Targeted Growth Zones' ie where infill is slated for in the proposed LPS5. These Investigation Areas are what the planning staff will be coming back to to undertake "detailed precinct planning". Hmm... more unjustified ad-hoc infill strategies and destruction of heritage, character and amenity, anyone?
