Burswood Station East Planning Framework

The Town has prepared a new draft planning framework for the Burswood Station East Precinct (“BSE Precinct”). The new planning framework will be the first step in facilitating redevelopment of the area to a vibrant, urban neighbourhood.

An important part of positive transformation is creating safe, pleasant public places that suit the needs of the local community. The draft planning framework includes mechanisms to assist in the identification, design and funding of these public places. The draft planning framework also places an emphasis on the impact buildings have on the quality of streets and public places they interact with.

The draft planning framework comprises two parts - Scheme Amendment 82 and Local Planning Policy 40. Scheme Amendment 82 will amend the "precinct plan" contained in the Town's Local Planning Scheme to include new development objectives and basic development standards. Local Planning Policy 40 provides additional guidance on how development can meet the new objectives and basic development standards.
