A campaign has been launched by residents of the City of Subiaco to commence scheme amendments to LPS5 and a vote against Local Planning Policies (LPPs) which do not positively promote and celebrate single dwelling living in the City of Subiaco.
Local Planning Policies should match the promises made by the planning officers and Mayor Penny Taylor that Subiaco’s charm and amenity would be preserved in Local Planning Scheme 5. Mayor Taylor claimed “the City of Subiaco could be an example of best practice urban design in an inner-city setting, all while retaining character and identity.”
According to Richard Shade from Central Ward planning officers promised:
Residents are now campaigning for promises to be kept through scheme amendments to LPS5. These scheme amendments should revert areas changed by the Minister for Planning back to the LPS5 unanimously supported by the community, Mayor Taylor and Councillors on 18 June and 23 July 2019.
Your support would be appreciated by sending me an email which I will forward to Councillors on Monday 6 July 2020 to vote against the Local Planning Policies proposed by planning staff and commence scheme amendments as soon as possible .

R-Code Dwelling types:
R-Code Minimum Site Area per dwelling:
A house separated from other houses (or other buildings or structures) by space to allow access on all sides (at least 1/2 a metre). This category also includes houses which have an attached flat (e.g. a granny flat). The attached flat will be included in the ‘Flat, unit or apartment’ category.
Includes dwellings with their own private grounds and no dwelling above or below. A key feature of these dwellings is that they are either attached in some structural way to one or more dwellings or are separated from neighbouring dwellings by less than 1/2 a metre. Examples include semi-detached, row or terrace houses, townhouses, and villa units. Multi-storey townhouses or units are separately identified from those which are single storey.
Includes dwellings in blocks of flats, units or apartments that are self-contained. These dwellings do not have their own private grounds and usually share a common entrance foyer or stairwell. This category includes houses converted into flats, and flats attached to houses such as granny flats.
Includes all types of accommodation within a caravan park. It also includes all occupied water craft in marinas.
Includes all mobile units, on water or land, occupied on a permanent or semi-permanent basis by people (e.g. caravans, campervans, mobile houses, small boats, houseboats) that are not in caravan parks or marinas.
Includes all structures not elsewhere classified that are occupied by people on a permanent or semi-permanent basis. This category typically includes garages, sheds, tents, shacks, etc. These structures are only included in this category if they are not in a caravan park.
Includes all houses or flats that are attached to a non-residential building. Examples of these dwellings are manses attached to a church, a flat or apartment over a shop, and a caretaker’s house or flat attached to a school, factory or storage facility.
A boarding/rooming house unit is a self-contained unit within a boarding house with separate cooking, bathroom, and toilet facilities. Boarding house units are usually accessed via a common entrance such as a foyer or hallway. Please note: this structure type identifies the individual rooms in a boarding/rooming house, not the complete building.
