Set­back changes passed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

FI­NAL changes have been made to the Town of Cam­bridge’s streetscape pol­icy al­ter­ing pri­mary street set­backs in City Beach and Floreat.

The amended pol­icy, which was adopted at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, will al­low more flex­i­bil­ity to build homes closer to the street, thereby re­duc­ing de­vel­op­ments from en­croach­ing into back­yards and af­fect­ing ad­join­ing prop­er­ties.

The coun­cil has also en­dorsed changes to crossover de­signs for Wem­b­ley and West Leed­erville to pre­vent large ar­eas of front yards be­ing hard paved.

The new pol­icy fol­lows feed­back from the Town of Cam­bridge Hous­ing Survey done ear­lier this year.
