What is a scheme amendment?

Town Planning Scheme No. 4 (TPS No.4) is town planning legislation used within the City of Armadale.

A scheme amendment is a proposal that modifies the text or the map zonings under Town Planning Scheme No. 4.

What is an omnibus amendment?

An omnibus amendment is a collection of small or minor amendment proposals that are combined into one scheme amendment. An omnibus will typically occur when there is a collection of smaller matters that do not each warrant an individual scheme amendment process
due to the administration time involved in in progressing a scheme amendment.

How does Scheme Amendment No.109 affect my property?

The City’s Town Planning Scheme No.4 (TPS No.4) was originally approved 2005. Review of the Scheme identified that there needed to be a number of modifications made to the Scheme to take into account changes to planning legislation and practice over the years and to correct minor errors or omissions required to the Scheme text and the Scheme maps. To do this the Council initiated an Omnibus Scheme Amendment, which is an amendment that allows the Council to do multiple minor changes to the Scheme at the same time instead of doing a lot of separate scheme amendments. A total of ten (10) proposals have been identified for inclusion in this omnibus amendment.

Omnibus Amendment No.109 consists of the following proposals:

  1. Zoning Amendments to the Scheme Map (see Tables below);
  2. Adding Bushfire protection to the aims of the Scheme under Clause 1.6 of the text;
  3. Amending the Zoning Table in the text to make the land use of “Consulting rooms” (small medical practices) a Permitted (P) land use in the Strategic Regional Centre Zone and making “”Medical Centre” (a large medical practice) a “Discretionary” (may be considered by Council) in the Mixed Business/Residential Zone;
  4. Adding a new Clause 4.15 to the Scheme text in regard to the new “Design Review Panel” the Council has set up to assess major Planning Proposals;
  5. Adding a new Clause 4.16 that would enable areas of the City of Armadale currently under the control of Development WA in Hilbert and Haynes to easily be brought back under the control of the City of Armadale as a process of normalisation occurs for those areas.
  6. Modifying Clause 4D Landscaping Requirements to include the requirements for a 3 metre landscaping strip at the front of properties in the Forrestdale Business Park. The FBP was previously under the control of Development WA so was not addressed in the City’s Scheme.
  7. Modifying Shade Tree Parking Requirements under parts 4C and 4D of the Scheme Text to allow for variation to the location of shade trees for parking bays directly in front of commercial buildings;
  8. Removing Additional Use 28 under Schedule 2 at former Lot 105 (No.119) Brookton Highway, Hill Street, Kelmscott (former Colli Timber site) as the site has been redeveloped for residential purposes;
  9. Adding a new Additional Use 49 under Schedule 2 for “Bulky Goods Showroom” at Lot 1 (1256) Armadale Road, Armadale (Haynes Shopping Centre) to recognise the existing showroom style stores already developed on site or proposed under the approved Structure Plan for the centre; and
  10. Modifying the car parking requirements related to “Residential Building” under Schedule 7A of the Scheme text. A “Residential Building” is basically holiday accommodation or student accommodation or a boarding house or similar.
