Draft Redcliffe Station Activity Centre Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Development Area 6 (DA6) is a significant redevelopment area located within City of Belmont which encompasses land bound by Great Eastern Highway, Coolgardie Avenue, Redcliffe Road, Fauntleroy Avenue and Tonkin Highway, as well as Perth Airport’s Airport West Precinct.

Planning for the area is informed by the ‘DA6 Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy’ and centres on the delivery of the new Redcliffe Train Station through the State Government’s Forrestfield Airport Link (FAL) project. DA6 can be easily distinguished into two main areas: Perth Airport’s Airport West Precinct and a portion of the Redcliffe neighbourhood between Perth Airport and Great Eastern Highway.

Perth Airport Pty Ltd undertakes planning work for its Airport West Precinct through the preparation and review of the Perth Airport Masterplan. The City of Belmont is currently preparing the planning framework for the remainder of the DA6 precinct in Redcliffe, which involves establishing an overarching statutory mechanism (either an Improvement Plan and Improvement Scheme or an amendment to Local Planning Scheme No. 15) and preparing an Activity Centre Plan, Design Guidelines and a Development Contribution Plan.

The City of Belmont is undertaking pre-consultation on the draft Redcliffe Station Activity Centre Plan from 26 February 2020 to 14 April 2020. Refer to the following links to find out more about the draft Activity Centre Plan and how you can be involved in the consultation process.

    The City of Belmont is currently preparing the planning framework for the DA6 precinct which will involve:
    • An amendment to Local Planning Scheme No. 15 (LPS 15) to formalise zoning and establish statutory controls over the precinct, unless the State Government resolves to initiate an Improvement Plan and Improvement Scheme over the precinct, in which case an amendment to LPS 15 will not be required.
    • An Activity Centre Plan to coordinate the future development of the precinct through zoning, built form controls, public open space provision, road hierarchy, stormwater management and infrastructure and servicing requirements.
    • A Development Contribution Plan (DCP) to provide a mechanism for the sharing of infrastructure costs amongst developing landowners.
    • Design Guidelines in the form of a Local Planning Policy that outlines specific built form requirements for the precinct.
    Information on the existing and proposed planning framework can be accessed on our website here.

    26 Feb 2020

    • DA6 has been identified as a redevelopment area since 2003 however strategic planning for the precinct stalled pending formal commitment from the State Government to implement the Perth Airport Rail Project.
    • In the lead up to the 2013 State Government Election, both major political parties committed to building the Perth Airport Rail Project.
    • In light of the State’s commitment, the City of Belmont and Perth Airport partnered to prepare a ‘Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy’ for DA6 in 2013. The objective was to identify a vision for the future redevelopment of the area and determine the planning processes required to achieve the vision.
    • In formulating the DA6 Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy, the City undertook extensive community engagement, including undertaking community visioning workshops, community information forums and open days and formal advertising with letters being sent to landowners and key stakeholders. The engagement was undertaken between 2013 and 2015.
    • In August 2014 the then State Government announced the construction of the ‘Forrestfield Airport Link’, a spur line extending from the existing Midland rail line to Forrestfield via a tunnel under the Swan River and Perth Airport. Three new train stations would be provided at Redcliffe, Airport Central (adjacent to Perth Airport’s Terminals 1 and 2) and Forrestfield.
    • The DA6 Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy was initially adopted by Council in December 2013, however in light of the State’s announcement the Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy was required to be revised. The amended DA6 Vision Plan and Implementation Strategy was subsequently readopted by Council in February 2016 as Local Planning Policy No. 14.
    • On 26 August 2014, Council resolved to formally request that the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) support the preparation of an Improvement Plan and Improvement Scheme for DA6 due to the project’s regional significance. Note: To date, the WAPC have not agreed to support the preparation of an Improvement Plan and Improvement Scheme.
    • In August 2015 a Planning Control Area (No. 116) is declared over a portion of the DA6 precinct encompassing the future location of the Redcliffe Train Station. Pursuant to section 112 of the Planning and Development Act 2015, any development within the Planning Control Area requires WAPC approval until such time that it expires in August 2020.
    • On 3 January 2017 the City appoints planning consultant Taylor Burrell Barnett to prepare the planning framework for DA6.
    • On 31 August 2017 the Western Australian Planning Commission approved the full construction of the Redcliffe Train Station with construction works commencing shortly thereafter.
    • On 7 October 2018 Brearley Avenue was permanently closed to traffic at Great Eastern Highway in Redcliffe.
    • On 18 December 2018 the State Government announced that the Forrestfield Airport Link opening has been delayed to the second half of 2021 (i.e. delayed by one year).
    • The WAPC formally declared on 28 May 2019 that the DA6 precinct requires an Activity Centre Plan to coordinate future redevelopment of the precinct in lieu of a Structure Plan.
    • Between July and August 2019, the WAPC advertised Amendment 1355/57 to the Metropolitan Region Scheme which proposes to reclassify land adjacent to Stanton Road and Tonkin Highway from ‘Primary Regional Roads’ to ‘Urban’ under the MRS. The land was previously set aside for expansion works to Tonkin Highway and Perth Airport, but was no longer required for those purposes and was on-sold to the Department of Communities.
    • Council at its meeting of 10 December 2019 endorses the first draft of the Redcliffe Station Activity Centre Plan for pre-consultation to be undertaken in early 2020.
    • Amendment 1355/57 to the Metropolitan Region Scheme was gazetted on 31 January 2020.
    • Pre-consultation of the draft Redcliffe Station Activity Centre Plan is undertaken from 26 February 2020 to 14 April 2020.
