Bridge vi­sion takes shape

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
