1487. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:
I refer to the Western Australian Planning Commission’s amendments to the City of Subiaco’s Local Planning Scheme 5, and I ask:
(a) how will the Government ensure that the increased density zonings lead to increased liveability for both existing and new residents; and
(b) what measures will be taken to ensure that developers contribute towards enabling:
(i) walkable neighbourhoods;
(ii) active transport choices;
(iii) increased canopy cover; and
(iv) increased public open space?
Hon Stephen Dawson replied:
(a) The City of Subiaco Local Planning Scheme No. 5 (LPS 5) and the associated Local Planning Strategy, drafts of which have recently concluded advertising, will be considered by the City of Subiaco for decision prior to presenting to the WAPC for final consideration and recommendation to the Minister.
(b) (i)–(iv) In making a decision on the scheme, due regard will be given to the liveability for both existing and new residents.
