Former Subiaco Councillor | Certified Financial Planner | WA Party Convenor
Mr Abercrombie, owner of the Pavilion Market site, is seeking an extension of time to 25 February 2023 before commencing the 16 storey development in Subiaco.
An application has been sent to the DAP for approval. The DAP have referred the matter to the planning department of Subiaco Council. The staff have written a report to approve the extension of time without any conditions.
This application is to come before Council on Tuesday 14 November at 5.30pm. If you would like to have a say at Council, please come to the meeting.
I have proposed the following condition be added to the DAP application (Responsible Authority Report):
b. The applicant takes all reasonable steps to:
i. make improvements to the site during the extension of time and before the development commences to protect the URBAN CHARACTER of the area essentially identified by open space, streetscape, land use and activity, State Planning Policy 3.5, clause 6.3.
ii. encourage vibrant and diverse uses of the site to promote the area as the Town Centre of Subiaco (ref. TPS4, clause 53(b)) until the approved development commences.
iii. revitalises this site known as the Pavilion Markets, a strategically important site within the Subiaco Town Centre (ref. TPS4, 54B(a)), until the approved development commences.
iv. exercise those portions of the DAP Application approved on 4 September 2015 which permit partial or full demolition of the existing buildings which are required to take all reasonable steps to protect the URBAN CHARACTER of the area.
If you support my condition, please come along to the meeting, otherwise it could be lost by a majority vote!
