RED TAPE REDUCTION IN FREMANTLE CBD

I accept that amendments to our local planning scheme are not super interesting to most but this latest is a good one as Amendment 52  will mean that the following changes of use no longer require Planning Approval;

  1. Use of an existing building in the City Centre zone for Shop, Office, Restaurant, Small Bar and Consulting Rooms, and
  2. Restaurant to Small Bar or vice versa where an existing approval exists for a Restaurant or Small Bar in the Mixed Use or Local Centre zone and the new use is consistent with any conditions of planning approval relating to the hours of operation.

This amendment will allow for much greater land use flexibility and streamlining of process, particularly within the CBD, and is an important part of our revitalisation efforts.

The amendment will have effect when it is gazetted, probably in a week or so.

Well done to the planners and council for getting this through.
