Station precinct heritage survey

Consultation has concluded

The outcome of the community’s views on heritage and the potential for increased density in the areas surrounding Daglish and Shenton Park train stations is now available.

In May 2015 the State Government released Perth and Peel@3.5million, a suite of draft planning documents to guide the development of the Perth metropolitan area as it reaches a predicated population of 3.5 million by 2050. These documents identify areas for potential increases in residential density and infill within the City of Subiaco (documents can be viewed in the document library).

The areas around Daglish and Shenton Park train stations have been identified as station precincts within the central sub-region and could be areas for future increased residential density or more commercial / mixed use land uses.

In order to ensure a balance between new development and the recognition of heritage values the city engaged and consulted the community through an online (and hard copy) survey to determine their thoughts and opinions on heritage and the future development of the station precinct areas. The survey was open from Friday 4 December 2015 to Monday 8 February 2016 and the city received 221 responses. The results of this survey have been summarised and can be found here.


In conjunction with the community survey the city also undertook an independent preliminary heritage review of the station precinct area to identify places or streetscapes that may be of heritage value. A copy of the preliminary heritage survey (17MB) is now also available in the document library.

Heritage
As there appears to be considerable value placed by residents on the character and heritage of the station precinct areas Council has recommended the following:

1. Undertaking further heritage assessments of the areas identified in the Preliminary Heritage Survey of the City of Subiaco Station precincts as potential heritage areas.

2. Undertaking further assessment of individual heritage places identified as potentially being of a level of significance to warrant heritage listing in their own right.

An independent Heritage Consultant will be commissioned to undertake these assessments. Residents within these areas and the owners of individual places will be contacted by the city and kept informed throughout the process. No decisions will be made without their knowledge and prior consultation. Further information about heritage areas can be found in this Heritage area FAQ fact sheet contained in the document library.

Increased density
As a result of the survey of residents the city has also gained a general understanding of how residents view the prospect of increased density in their immediate area, the type of increased density that they consider appropriate and the locations where it could be achieved. This information is included in the Summary of Responses and will be considered during the preparation of the city’s new Town Planning Scheme.
