THE ORIGINAL LOCAL HOUSING STRATEGY
MARCH 2010 PROPOSED LHS (for public consultation)
FEB 2011 APPROVED LHS
The Feb 2011 Draft LHS is the version that was sent to the WAPC for endorsement
Joondalup says the Department of Planning were not satisfied with this version and asked for changes.
The only problem we can see with it is that it did not achieve Joondalup's Directions 2031 infill dwelling target.
The reason it didn't meet that target was because it assumed a ridiculously low uptake rate by 2031 of just 35%. At a more realistic uptake rate of 60% it exceeded the target by 910 dwellings
DEC 2012 IN PRINCIPLE VOTE TO INCREASE THE DENSITY
At this meeting the Councillors were asked to approve an increase in the density based on just the revised HOA maps, and were also asked to approve not consulting further with the residents and owners of properties in the HOAs.
They approved yes to both.
APRIL 2013 APPROVAL OF REVISED DRAFT LHS
At this meeting the Councillors were asked to approve the Revised Draft LHS.
Infill (mums and dads developments) has been replaced with Infill (small scale developments) and the Draft Dual Density Code Policy no longer exists.
Apartments were not factored into the potential dwelling figures and no allowance for dwellings in the Mixed use areas is shown either. This is not stated in the LHS document or in the Council Item minutes.
So when the Councillors approved the Revised LHS did they know about the potential impact of Apartments and how much higher the number of dwellings could be.
This FAQ mentions Apartments. The current FAQ on Joondalup's website does not.
The April 2013 Revised Draft LHS was then sent to the WAPC for endorsement.
NOV 2013 WAPC ENDORSEMENT OF REVISED LHS
The WAPC endorsed the LHS on the 12th of November 2013. The linked document here is minus the agenda pages for the City of Joondalup zoning change maps and survey results. The Department of Plannings comments are included.
The full Agenda for that month can be downloaded from the Statutory Planning Committees web page:
PROPOSED AMENDMENT 73
At this meeting the Councillors were asked to approve the proposed Scheme Amendment 73 to implement the LHS for public consultation.
The only provision to restrict Apartments in the proposed Amendment is "Multiple dwellings shall not be developed on a lot less than 2000m2."
AUG 2015 LHS LOCAL PLANNING POLICIES (for public consultation)
At this meeting the Councillors were asked to approve the draft Residential Development Local Planning Policy and draft Height of Non-Residential Buildings Local Planning Policy for public consultation.
These are 'much ado about nothing' and have no provisions to restrict Apartments.
The tree retention provision is missing and a requirement to have verge car bays is added.
Aug 2015 proposed Local Planning Policies
DEC 2015 LHS LOCAL PLANNING POLICIES APPROVED
At this meeting the Councillors approved the Residential Development Local Planning Policy and the Height of Non-Residential Buildings Local Planning Policy.
FEB 2016 - AMENDMENT 73 COMES INTO EFFECT
Amendment 73 was endorsed by the WAPC on 10 Nov 2015 and it was signed off by the Planning Minister and was published in the Government Gazette on the 12th Feb 2016.
The "Multiple dwellings shall not be developed on a lot less than 2000m2." Apartment provision restriction has been removed.
The Amendment 73 FAQs and the Amendments 73 information on the Joondalup website do not mention Multiple Dwellings or Apartments and do not explain the type of Group Dwelling and Multiple Dwelling development that is possible.
