ASCOT KILNS DRAFT LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND DRAFT LOCAL PLANNING POLICY (DESIGN GUIDELINES)
The Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage has prepared a draft Local Development Plan (LDP) for approval by the City of Belmont. In tandem with the LDP, the City seeks to adopt a Local Planning Policy containing Design Guidelines for the development of the Ascot Kilns site. Further to previous community consultation, minor updates have been made to the documents.
The advertising for comments of the draft LDP and local planning policy (design guidelines) and supporting documents has been completed.
The LDP will guide site layout and access, as well as the relationship and interface of new buildings with the heritage structures and surrounding areas.
The draft Local Planning Policy (Design Guidelines) will outline building design requirements including height (varying from 2-8 storeys), setbacks, orientation, facades and corner articulation, private outdoor and communal space requirements, colours, materials and roof design, as well as public art and signage.
This is the first occasion in more than 25 years that a plan has been developed to support the retention of the heritage listed kilns in perpetuity.
Enquiries in relation to the above can be directed to Planning Officer - Projects, Chantelle Gilbert, on (08) 9477 7459.
Golden Gateway Local Structure Plan
Following the community consultation undertaken in 2016, the City is working with the consultant team to refine the draft Local Structure Plan and supporting information.
It is intended that public advertising of the draft Local Structure Plan will be conducted in the second half of 2017 before Council formally considers adoption of the plan.
