Development Area 6 (DA6) is a significant redevelopment area located in the City of Belmont.

This area can be easily distinguished into two main areas:
At the 23 March 2021 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to adopt, for the purposes of undertaking public advertising, the draft Activity Centre Plan and proposed Amendment No. 15 to Local Planning Scheme No. 15.
In December 2022, the Western Australian Planning Commission wrote to advise landowners about the initiation of Improvement Plan 45 – Redcliffe Station Precinct.
The Improvement Plan itself does not change the development potential of land at this point in time. Initiating the Improvement Plan is the first step of the planning pathway to establish the appropriate development potential and planning standards for future development in the precinct. The Improvement Plan sets out the broad objectives for the redevelopment of the area, after which an Improvement Scheme is prepared. The Improvement Scheme will set out the specific standards for future development.
The Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage has been tasked to prepare the Improvement Scheme and has advised that the City will continue to play an important role in the development and delivery of this planning framework for the precinct.
The Department is currently making arrangements to progress an Improvement Scheme for the Development Area 6 Precinct, which will take several months to prepare. Once drafted, there will be a minimum 90-day consultation period. The Department will subsequently review submissions and assess if any modifications to the Improvement Scheme are necessary, prior to making a recommendation to the Minister for Planning.
