Bridge vision takes shape
THE City of South Perth’s Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) will come into effect following the Minister for Planning’s approval of Town Planning Scheme Amendment No. 47.
The amendment is the culmination of an 11-year study of an area centred on the Canning Bridge train station.
The amendment is to give statutory effect to the CBACP, enabling development of the Activity Centre to proceed according to the CBACP’s provisions and desired outcomes.
With increasing interest in the area, the City anticipates that lodging of development applications will commence in the near future.
It is expected that these developments will be between four and 15 storeys.
Mayor Sue Doherty said the precinct surrounding Canning Bridge provided opportunities for revitalisation of the area for a mix of office, retail, residential, recreational and cultural uses.
“The area will become a vibrant community centred on the integrated transport node of the Canning Bridge rail station, with a unique location and local heritage that integrates with regional transport networks while enhancing the natural attractions of the rivers,” she said.
