Old Quinns Rocks Recoding
Draft amended Local Planning Policy 3.1 – Local Housing Strategy Implementation
Closed for public comment
The community consultation period for the revised Local Planning Policy 3.1 has now closed. The City is currently in the process of reviewing the submissions received. A report will be prepared, including an outline of the submissions received, for the Council's consideration.
Background to the proposed LPP 3.1 amendment
In 2005, the City adopted the City of Wanneroo Local Housing Strategy (LHS), which included recommendations to help facilitate the provision of housing to meet the demands resulting from the City’s strong population growth.
The Strategy identified six ‘housing precincts’ that could potentially accommodate an increase in residential density. The area known as ‘Old Quinns’ was identified as one of the six housing precincts within the City, which would undergo further investigations for potential recoding.
To implement the recommendations of the LHS, the City adopted LPP 3.1.
Due to a lack of deep sewerage being available to Old Quinns, Yanchep and Two Rocks at the time; the City progressed with its investigations into the potential for recoding of the three remaining identified ‘housing precincts’; Girrawheen, Koondoola and Wanneroo.
In 2013, the State Government adopted State Planning Policy 2.6 – State Coastal Planning (SPP 2.6), providing guidance for decision-making within the coastal zone. The adoption of SPP 2.6 triggered the requirement for the City to develop a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaption Plan (CHRMAP). The City completed its CHRMAP in August 2018.
In February 2019, the City commenced investigations into the suitability of progressing with a residential recoding of Old Quinns following the completion of the City’s CHRMAP and the provision of deep sewerage to Old Quinns. Hames Sharley undertook the Old Quinns Rocks Landform and Recoding Study (the Study) on behalf of the City, and investigated a number of recoding options having regard to the unique landform and character of the area, and current State Government policies and strategies.
