DAP 263-277 Hay Street, Subiaco
Submissions are being called for on this DAP application at 263-277 Hay Street, Subiaco. The closing date is 5pm Friday 9 November 2012
The development is planned for the corner of Hay Street and Olive Street. It will combine 7 lots into one big super block and includes the demolition of all existing buildings to build a five storey mixed use development.
See the plans at: http://subiaco.wa.gov.au/template.asp?navSelect=12&mainNavID=12&pageRecID=985
Local residents and ratepayers have reviewed the development application and have the following comments to make in their submissions:
- The proposed building is a gross over-development of the site.
- It does not comply with the Town Planning Scheme requirements in its plot ratio; building envelope; streetscape; vehicle movements; vehicle access and egress.
- Clause 45(4)(a) of the TPS4 refers to a building height shall not exceed 9 metres overall and 6 metres wall height. Only elected members can vary this height restriction to a maximum height of 12 metres and wall height of 9 metres where they are satisfied that there is to be no undue adverse impact on adjoining sites, streetscape or the amenity of the locality in general.
- The proposed development has a building height of 18 metres (5 storeys plus 2 basement levels). It is a non compliant development application.
- There will be a significant increase in traffic movements and potentially dangerous traffic problems on Churchill Ave and Olive Street as 400 workers jostle for 233 car bays.
- Surrounding streets will be prime targets for office workers’ parking requirements.
- The excessive height and scale of the development with a high proportion of office space in the development are not consistent with the character of the area or the precinct planning.
- The use of highly reflective finishes throughout is not consistent with the character of the Hay Street East Precinct Planning Policy
- The proposed building will tower over the existing streetscape and building heights.
- The site’s service area (rubbish and deliveries for the 400 workers and 50 residents) faces Churchill Ave leading to noisy truck deliveries adjacent to a residential area. The developer also assumes they can cross Council land to gain access to the site’s service area.
- Super blocks in Subiaco are out of character, out of touch with our village lifestyle and a blow to the amenity of the area.
