Higher den­sity plans mooted

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion - By ROSANNA CAN­DLER

SU­BI­ACO Coun­cil ap­proved the first stage of a Town Plan­ning Scheme (TPS) amend­ment to al­low higher den­sity in parts of Daglish, in­clud­ing Cun­ning­ham and Stubbs ter­races and Luth Av­enue, in July.

Fol­low­ing as­sess­ment by the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Au­thor­ity, the City of Su­bi­aco will ad­ver­tise the pro­posed amend­ment for public com­ment.

Cun­ning­ham Ter­race res­i­dent Stan Davies op­poses the amend­ment.

“It seems un­fair that some own­ers have the op­por­tu­nity to sub­di­vide and some do not,” Mr Davies said.

Coun­cil­lor Garry Trinder said coun­cil should put the amend­ment out for public com­ment and “get it out to our com­mu­nity”.

“Now is the time to get this done,” Cr Trinder said.

Cr Paul Cle­ments said is would be “a pain” to raise res­i­dents’ hopes if the plan could not be sup­ported on plan­ning grounds.

“Ev­ery­one is lim­ited by the TPS,” he said.
