  • Proposed Town Planning Scheme Amendment Number 129 - Rezoning Lots 88,89 & 90 Leisure Way Halls Head 'Special Development' to 'Residential R30'

    In August 2014 Council adopted Amendment 129 to Town Planning Scheme 3 for advertising.  The proposed Amendment was initiated by Council and seeks to:

    • Rezone lots 88, 89 and 90 Leisure Way from ‘Special Development’ to ‘Residential R30’
    • Identify Lots 88 and 89 Leisure Way as ‘Additional Use No. 16’;
    • Identify Lot 90 Leisure Way as ‘Additional Use No. 17’; and
    • Modify Appendix 2 (Additional Uses) of the Scheme to include specific development criteria in relation to building scale and setbacks.

    It is relevant to acknowledge that Lots 88, 89 and 90 Leisure Way are currently the subject of a proposed modification to the Halls Head Precinct Plan (referred to as Modification 3).  Modification 3 has come about as a result of State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) proceedings related to a Development Guide Plan for Lot 90 Leisure Way which was refused by Council in late 2013.

    Whilst Council’s consideration of Modification 3 will clearly define its position on what is currently proposed  by the Applicant (as an outcome of the SAT Mediation process), the purpose of Amendment 129 is to clarify the type of use and scale of development that Council considers appropriate for this location.

    It is anticipated that Amendment 129 will be considered by Council for approval in early 2015.

  • Halls Head Precinct Plan - Proposed Modification 3

    In August Council adopted Modification 3 to the Halls Head Precinct Plan for advertising.  The proposed modification has been prepared in response to the current State Administrative Tribunal mediation for a proposed Development Guide Plan for Lot 90 Leisure Way which Council refused in December 2013. In summary, the modification proposes to expand the existing Halls Head Precinct Plan area to include Lots 88, 89 and 90 Leisure Way.  The modification also proposes a substantial portion of Lot 90 Leisure Way as ‘Mixed Business’ to provide for future showroom development, with the remaining northern portion of Lot 90 with frontage to Leisure Way, as ‘Residential R30’.  It is also proposed that Lot 88 and a portion of Lot 89 be designated as ‘Mixed Use / Residential R40/60’, with the remaining portion of Lot 89 as ‘Residential R40’

    The City is inviting public comment on the proposed modifications to Halls Head Precinct Plan until Friday 17 October 2014.

  • South Mandurah Rural Structure Plan

    Growth in Mandurah continues to place increased pressure on the Southern Rural Structure Plan area.  Given the environmental sensitivity of the area, which includes  extensive bushland and coastal systems including the Yalgorup National Park and the internationally significant Ramsar listed Lake Clifton and the Peel-Harvey Estuary System, Council has recognised the need to put in place a framework that appropriately balances land use and environmental planning.  In response to this need, in April 2014 Council adopted the Southern Rural Structure Plan for advertising. 

    We seek your feedback on the proposed Structure Plan and Amendment.

  • Budget and Rates 2014-15

    The City of Mandurah is currently preparing to adopt the budget and rates for 2014-2015, and as always, this is a very important time for the City and the Council.

    In considering the new budget and proposed rate increase, we aim to strike the best possible balance between the City’s responsibility to deliver services and infrastructure to our residents, while being mindful of the community’s capacity to pay rates in difficult financial times for some.

    As in years past, the City’s population continues to grow at a rate that is significantly higher than state and national averages, this places an increasing demand on services and facilities in Mandurah.

    It is paramount that our budget reflects value for money while still providing quality projects to our community in the areas of recreation, roads, reserves, buildings and waterways.

    Taking these factors into consideration the City of Mandurah has worked hard to maintain the rate increase for 2014/2015 at 4 percent.
