Can­ning Bridge vi­sion nears fruition

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Albany Highway Cafe Strip -

A LONG-awaited plan for the fu­ture of the Can­ning Bridge area has been pre­sented to the City of South Perth and will be re­leased pub­licly for com­ment.

The Can­ning Bridge struc­ture plan and de­sign guide­lines were en­dorsed at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing.

A vi­sion for the area was first de­vel­oped by the ci­ties of South Perth and Melville and the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion in 2011. The plan in­cludes com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial build­ings, on both sides of Can­ning Bridge, and a fo­cus on mak­ing use of the nearby train sta­tion and bus routes.

Mixed-use build­ings will be al­lowed up to 15 storeys, pos­si­bly higher un­der cer­tain cir­cum­stances, and res­i­den­tial build­ings to eight storeys.

The plan is open for com­ment for 42 days. The City of Melville has en­dorsed the plan.
