Swanbourne Street Local Structure Plan – have your say.

The Local Structure Plan is now out for comment for the redevelopment of the former Navy Fuel Depot and the former BP Bunkering Terminal (bordered by Swanbourne Street, Knutsford Street and Amherst Street).

The new proposed Local Structure Plan by LandCorp is a big improvement on the last one which to be blunt wasn’t much more than single-lot residential for McMansions that was going to do littel for affordability and sustainability.

This new one is much more ambitious and better but will no doubtalso be more controversial. It provides the opportunity to transform these vacant sites into a quality medium to high density residential precinct offering a range of housing types.

There is one high rise tower that it would be fair to say is higher than any of us were expecting but is cleverly placed behind the hill where one of the old tanks were located.

One of my favourite parts of the plan is the significant public open space along the highest points of Swanbourne Street consistent with the vision of connected parks and green spaces outlined in the City of Freo’s ‘Green Plan’.

The City of Fremantle commenced advertising the Local Structure Plan on 12 August 2014 and the public submission period closes on 23 September 2014.
