North Subiaco Urban Design Study

Feedback on the North Subiaco Urban Design Study has now closed.

The city has undertaken an urban design study to guide the future planning and development of the area bound by Townshend Road/Haydn Bunton Drive, Railway Road, Thomas Street and Churchill Avenue, to be referred to as North Subiaco. The plan forms part of a broader scheme review process and follows on from the city’s work on the Local Planning Strategy and the draft Subiaco Activity Centre Structure Plan. 

The city invites involvement and feedback on the two frameworks to ensure the plan reflects a shared vision, values and community aspirations. If you live, work or visit North Subiaco, your input is important and we encourage you to get involved and help shape the future of North Subiaco. 

Feedback will close Friday 3 October 2014 at 5pm.

    Background

    The City of Subiaco must ensure that the growth and development of the city meets the future needs of the community. To achieve this, a Local Planning Strategy has been prepared and endorsed by the Western Australia Planning Commission (WAPC). An Activity Centre Structure Plan for the town centre has also been prepared. As part of this process, the area bound by Townshend Road/Haydn Bunton Drive, Railway Road, Thomas Street and Churchill Avenue (referred to as North Subiaco) was identified as an important link between the Subiaco Activity Centre and West Perth and West Leederville.

    Background

    The City of Subiaco must ensure that the growth and development of the city meets the future needs of the community. To achieve this, a Local Planning Strategy has been prepared and endorsed by the Western Australia Planning Commission (WAPC). An Activity Centre Structure Plan for the town centre has also been prepared. As part of this process, the area bound by Townshend Road/Haydn Bunton Drive, Railway Road, Thomas Street and Churchill Avenue (referred to as North Subiaco) was identified as an important link between the Subiaco Activity Centre and West Perth and West Leederville. The area is also of strategic importance to the city and wider metropolitan region as it includes Subiaco Oval and Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH).

    Why are we doing the urban design study?

    North Subiaco is a place under transition and will face major change through the relocation of Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) to the Perth Children’s Hospital at the QEII Medical Centre and AFL football to the new Perth Stadium at Burswood.

    Although the future of these two critical sites is currently unknown, their future is likely to have an impact on the area and on Subiaco as a whole. The focus will need to shift to the area’s other competitive advantages; its role as a link between the Subiaco Activity Centre and West Perth and West Leederville, its growing importance as a place of business for professional services, and its desirability as a neighbourhood with high amenity. 

    In response to the above and to plan for the future, an urban design study has been conducted. This study has considered the zoning, land use and development controls across the area and culminated in the preparation of two urban design frameworks.
