City of Subiaco and SRA settle AFC legal proceedings
5 July 2011
The Subiaco Redevelopment Authority (SRA) has today announced that it has agreed to settle the legal proceedings commenced by the City of Subiaco (City) late last year in regard to the redevelopment of the Australian Fine China (AFC) site.
The settlement agreement includes some changes to the type of development which may occur on the AFC site.
The changes are as follows:
- The maximum height of buildings on Lots 202 and 203 (both fronting Hay Street) and Lot 208 will be reduced to five storeys (removing the six storey corner element from the three lots).
- The car parking requirements will be fixed (the current planning scheme allows a
15 per cent reduction in car parking at the discretion of the SRA).
- The northern portion of the building on Lot 206 North overlooking Subiaco Common will have a maximum height of three storeys with a gabled roof (the current plan allows for four storeys).
- The AFC Design Guidelines will specify that development on Lots 206 north and 207 are to be designed to reflect the neighbouring townhouse development along Rossello Lane and Darbon Crescent respectively.
The SRA has confirmed that the maximum height of buildings on Lots 209 to 217 will be three storeys.
For the changes to come into effect, the SRA will now commence work to amend the SRA Scheme and AFC Design Guidelines.
The scheme amendment process will take several months and will require the approval of the Minister for Planning and a consultation process with key stakeholders and the community.
SRA Chairman Don Humphreys said that SRA was pleased that the difference had been resolved by the mediation process and the SRA was working collaboratively with the City to ensure the settlement agreement is realised in the AFC development.
More information about the scheme amendment and design guideline review process will be available on the SRA website in the coming weeks.
