Draft Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan

The Golden Gateway precinct encompasses land generally bound by Great Eastern Highway, the Swan River, Resolution Drive (north), Grandstand Road (north), Ascot Racecourse (southern boundary), Carbine Street and Hardey Road.

The draft Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan has been formulated based off community engagement (workshops and surveys) that was undertaken in 2016, including:

May 2016: Three separate workshops with Council officers, Business/Landowners and Community/Residents.

May and November 2016: Two online surveys for the wider community to provide additional comments.

November 2016: One workshop with business/landowners and community/residents to present three draft concepts.

What is the Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan?

The draft Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan has been prepared to coordinate future subdivision, zoning and development of the precinct. It addresses matters relating to infrastructure changes and upgrades to roads, drainage and services and associated land reassembly, provision of pedestrian and cycle paths and the creation of public spaces.

New development standards are proposed to control building height and built form, car parking and residential density, to identify ‘landmark’ building sites and provide for commercial land uses including a ‘main street’ with retail and restaurant/café activities and a local retail centre. In terms of building heights, the suggested heights have come after initial consultation with the community and stakeholders.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 26 February 2019 (Item 12.6), Council considered and endorsed the draft Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan for the purpose of public consultation. Advertising of the draft Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan commences on 3 October 2019 and will conclude on 31 October 2019.
