A submission can be made by any interested individual - the Town encourages you to submit your views on the modifications to this important Amendment.


In 2018 the Council adopted a major Amendment to its Planning Scheme for the Roofing 2000 site.  The owner proposes the site be developed for high density residential and commercial uses so the Amendment was required to introduce building and parking development controls.  The Amendment included controls relating to building height and setbacks, floor space, land use, overshadowing, vehicle parking and other matters.

The Amendment was then forwarded to the WA Planning Commission (WAPC) for its consideration.  The WAPC made substantial changes to the Amendment most notably to the building height and setback controls allowing for a greater building height, lesser building setbacks than those endorsed by Council and the potential for additional building height under certain circumstances.  These changes were then reconsidered by the Minister for Planning who has directed that the Amendment be modified and advertised for public comment for 28 days. Following the comment period the Minister will consider public comment (submissions) and Council’s recommendations prior to making a final decision.  

Documents providing full details of the modifications to the Scheme Amendment are available for inspection here or at the Town Hall, 135 Canning Highway, East Fremantle, during office hours up to and including Monday, 25 February 2019

Submissions on the modifications to the Scheme Amendment may be made in writing to the Chief Executive Officer, Town of East Fremantle on Submission Form 3A and lodged on or before Monday, 25 February 2019.
