    Providing clarity around which policies apply to heritage areas

    Q. If the area becomes a heritage area, is it correct that two heritage policies will apply to the area?

    A. Correct.

    If the area is declared a Heritage Area then Planning Policy 3.13 ‘Daglish First Land Release Heritage Area’ and Planning Policy 3.6 ‘Development guidelines for residential heritage areas’ will apply to the area. The Daglish Precinct Policy also applies however, where there are inconsistencies between the provisions of Policy 3.6 and the Daglish Precinct Policy, the provisions of Policy 3.6 will prevail.

    Draft Planning Policy 3.13 ‘Daglish First Land Release Heritage Area’

    The Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations require that a planning policy be adopted for each individual heritage area. This planning policy:

    • Outlines the boundaries of the heritage area

    • Describes the significance for the area

    • Identifies any key development constraints in the area

    • Refers to Planning Policy 3.6 for the development principles that apply to the area.

    Planning Policy 3.6 ‘Development guidelines for residential heritage areas’

    Planning Policy 3.6 ‘Development guidelines for residential conservation areas’ is a generic policy that applies to all of the city’s residential heritage areas. This policy provides guidance to landowners and the City of Subiaco in preparing and assessing applications for planning approval. It includes provisions relating to demolition; alterations and additions; new building development; off street parking; front fences; and incidental development.

    This policy has recently been reviewed and is being advertised for public comment from 21 April to 19 May 2017. The purpose of the review is to bring the policy in line with new changes to the legislative framework, improve the user-friendliness for the community and city officers, remove the requirement for property owners to prepare Heritage Impact Statements, clarify sight lines for second storey additions and provide definitions to assist with the interpretation of the policy provisions. The modifications proposed do not modify the intent of the policy. To view the revised policy and to make a submission please visit the formal submissions hub of the city’s website.

    Q. What if we don't agree with a development principle in Policy 3.6 for our area? For example, what if we want to retain the ability to have carports in our front setbacks as per the Daglish Precinct Policy?

    A. The benefits of having a specific planning policy for each heritage area are that it allows for consideration of the constraints specific to each area.

    If the policy provisions for carports in heritage areas contained in Planning Policy 3.6 is something Daglish residents feel strongly against, and it is considered that the provisions for carports in the Daglish precinct policy are more appropriate then the Daglish First Land Release Heritage Area Policy can be amended to reflect this. This would involve including the below under Section 6 Development Principles:

    6.0 Development Principles

    In accordance with Planning Policy 3.6 Development Guidelines for Residential Conservation Areas with the exception of the following which will be in accordance with Local Planning Policy 4.2 ‘Daglish Precinct’:

    (i) Garages and Carports

    Q. Is planning approval required for any changes I want to make to my place if the area is listed?

    A. With the introduction of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations in October 2015 only the carrying out of works to the interior of buildings, that do not materially affect the external appearance of a building, do not require development approval. Therefore planning approval is required for any other works.

    The Regulations do however allow Council to exempt other works through policy provisions and the city has developed a policy allowing exemptions from planning approval for alterations and additions that do not adversely affect the cultural heritage significance of a place or an area (Planning Policy 1.8 Development Approval Exemptions). The draft policy will be advertised for public comment from 21 April to 19 May 2017. To view the draft policy and to make a submission please visit the formal submissions hub of the city’s website.

    Approval is currently not required for general maintenance provided the works do not adversely affect the significant fabric of the place.

    It is Council policy to refund or waiver planning application fees for works which would normally otherwise be exempt from planning approval.
