Calls for input on new Subi East planning framework

The State’s commitment to creating transit-oriented communities has progressed with release of a draft redevelopment scheme and associated policies for Subiaco.

Planning Minister, Rita Saffioti said the new planning framework will apply to MRA's recently expanded Subiaco Redevelopment Area and considers important strategic sites including Subiaco Oval and the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) site.

Draft Scheme 2 will consider future land uses for redevelopment of parts of Subiaco and effectively transfer planning authority from the City of Subiaco and the Western Australian Planning Commission to the MRA.

The draft development policies propose to update the existing planning framework including requirements for sustainability, public art, heritage interpretation and affordable housing. The documents are open for public comment until 8 January 2018.

We want to engage the community from these first stages of the project with an opportunity to have their say on the draft planning scheme for Subiaco.

In addition to establishing a new planning framework, design work is progressing for the new inner city college and early site works will commence in February 2018 to prepare the Kitchener Park site for construction.

Minister Saffitoi remarked that the new Inner City College would provide much needed education and employment opportunities for the local community now and into the future. 

We are getting on with delivering the school in time for 2020 enrolment however there will be more opportunities for the local community to have their say on the future uses of the iconic Subiaco Oval and PMH sites as planning progresses.

The McGowan Government’s METRONET plan will ensure the new education facility benefits from key public transport infrastructure to create more liveable, better connected communities.
