Rezoning plan to go ahead
A REZONING proposal for Hamersley previously rejected by Stirling Council is being progressed by the State Government.
The council refused a 2016 application to rezone lots on the south side of Beach Road from Glendale Avenue to Erindale Road in Hamersley, opposite Warwick shopping centre, from residential R20 to mixed use and residential to allow commercial and residential uses.
But the Planning Minister ordered the City to proceed with the local planning scheme amendment last November.
The amendment proposes specific design requirements, including that new buildings one to two storeys high have a minimum 6m setback from residential properties, buildings above two storeys to have a 9m minimum setback and new development to only be on land that is at least1500sq m or two amalgamated lots.
The proposal is open for public comment until April 17. Comments must be lodged in writing to the City of Stirling or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
