The commercial areas of the City of Belmont are supported by the robust Local Planning Scheme 15 and Development Application process that includes preliminary advice, a whole of Council approach and access to the Planning and Property & Economic Development Team to assist with queries and facilitate your development outcome.
Kewdale Industrial area
Kewdale is known as Perth’s most established and premier industrial location featuring the State’s leading transport, logistics and manufacturing businesses. The area features large lot sizes with a wide range of industrial uses. It is also home to Kewdale Freight Terminal with approximately 17,000 square meters of rail yard and depots. The number of containers that pass through this facility on an annual basis is estimated at 330,000 units.
The Springs is an exciting redevelopment project transforming 12.5 hectares of riverfront land into a high standard residential and commercial precinct just five minutes from the Perth CBD. It is bounded by Graham Farmer Freeway, Great Eastern Highway, Brighton Road and the Swan River foreshore and will form a landmark ‘gateway’ into Belmont.
The City of Belmont has adopted a structure plan and detailed design guidelines to deliver a vibrant area here. Key features include a mix of land uses comprising mainly medium to high density residential and commercial use. The anticipated high density developments within The Springs will maximize river perspectives and residential potential along the freeway. The road network will be reworked to accommodate vehicle, cyclist and pedestrian traffic.
A strong emphasis will be placed on quality architecture and urban design, social and environmental objectives, park and foreshore amenity to ensure it is an attractive, appealing place to live, work and visit.

Belmont Business Park
In its aim to support and facilitate the establishment of more offices in the Belmont Business Park area, the City has established new standards in car parking requirements, setbacks and permitted uses.
This distinct area was created to ensure business is supported and protected from increasing pressure to develop the land for residential use.
In this location we encourage business use such as office, showroom, eating houses and appropriate light industrial.
The future vision is for the zone to rival the suburban office parks of West Perth, Subiaco and Osborne Park . To support the realisation of this vision the City is undertaking the $12m Belmont Business Park Transport Infrastructure Project which will be staged over 5 years from 2015.
An ongoing and significant area of development is the river front strip of land adjacent to Great Eastern Highway that stretches from the Graham Farmer Freeway to Ascot Waters, known as the Golden Mile. The area is characterised by outstanding high rise residential and commercial development.
