Leederville Masterplan/Activity Centre Structure Plan
The Vision for Leederville in 2024 which stemmed from the City's multi-award winning community planning project Vincent Vision 2024, is one of a community that celebrates its rich heritage and tapestry of life with flair - where all people are valued and respected in a unique, friendly and inviting community.
The Leederville Masterplan aims to create a social, physical and economic environment where people universally feel invited to live, work and play. The Town Centre will incorporate adequate car parking, diverse housing choices, active activities such as retail, restaurants and cafés, office space and diversity of activities that will help create a sustainable and vibrant precinct.
The Leederville Masterplan is a blueprint for the future development of the area focussing on the environmental, economic and social needs of the community. The Masterplan will help create an invigorated and robust community square close to the Leederville café strip that will act as a magnet for a diverse range of activities that will complement the Leederville image.
The Leederville Masterplan has identified a number of precincts:
- Oxford Street
- Education Centre
- Civic Precinct
- Oxford Markets/Food Precinct
- Entertainment Precinct
- Oxford Town Square
- Carr Place Residential
- Newcastle Street Commercial/Network City.
Built Form Guidelines
The Leederville Masterplan Built Form Guidelines were adopted by the Council at the Special Meeting held on 16 March 2009 to guide development of the built form within the Leederville Masterplan area. The Leederville Masterplan Built Form Guidelines are to be read in conjunction with Town Planning Scheme No.1 and associated planning policies and provisions.
The Planning Officers can provide guidance and planning advice in relation to development within the Leederville Masterplan area.
Activity Centre Structure Plan
Leederville has been recognised as a 'Secondary Centre' under State Planning Policy 4.2 relating to Activity Centres for Perth and Peel. As a result, the City is required to prepare an Activity Centre Structure Plan.
The purpose of a Structure Plan is to provide a holistic document which provides a framework for development in the area. It coordinates elements such as provision of land use, community facilities, services and infrastructure. The Structure Plan requires approcal from the Western Australian Planning Commission.
The City is currently in the process of developing the Structure Plan. The Structure Plan will build on the principles of the Leederville Masterplan, however will provide greater details for the development of the centre.
