1      Appx B       76 Do not support the omission of an urban growth boundary (UGB), particularly as the concept was so well supported by the public in the Dialogue with City process. Strongly                y y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                        disagree that the TPS and MRS are effective in controlling the rate and direction of urban growth and that the use of a UGB is superfluous. Recommend that a UGB is necessary
                        to manage urban growth and should be included as a strategy.
1       Intro       60 Network city refers to a 'slow and slight' shift towards higher density development. Syme Marmion report for City of Wanneroo indicates that trend is at a faster rate.                   y n     Local gov't (outer area)    o    Wanneroo
1       Intro       101 Support key objectives. Comments: Obj 1: low density sprawl has forced unsustainable use of private motorised transport. Consolidation of urban areas is likey to provide better         n y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                        proximity to destinations and increase attractiveness of non-motorised transport. Obj 3: good quality cycling facilities provide accessibility for the community, particularly people
                        who may not be able to own and operate their own car, Obj 4: bicycle transport offers an energy efficient and traffic safety improvement to the city. Obj 6: interpreted to include
                        health - physical, mental and community health costs. Bicycle transport is far less intrusive to communities in terms of traffic impact and from a built environment and pollution
                        point of view, and is also more communicative. Obj 7: consultation with bicycle users , who can be overlooked as a group. Obj 10: the principles endorsed in Network city
                        provide a clear path towards and deliverables for a more sustainable future and should be progressed as a matter of urgency.

                        changes include enhancement of the relationship between State and local government to deliver outcomes directly controlled by local government and which are often
                        sabotaged by NIMBY factors.

                        they are understated) and that population growth needs to be accommodated. (iv) Recommend decentralisation to other regional areas and towns, migration controls and other
                        controls on new arrivals.

                        Objections: 1. It imposes a new set of development strategies over land already developed and owned. 2. Mostly residential landowners will have no say in the changes that will
                        occur in their suburbs. 3. It will create a bonanza for large developers and speculators as people move to try to retain their lifestyle. 4. Public open space decrease as it is used
                        to meet density targets. Our trees provide clean air and any benefits that might be obtained from the increased use of public transport will be lost. Recommend a tree policy
                        similar to the British policy of non-destruction of trees. 5. The City of Joondalup tried to implement Precinct Planning which strongly resembles Network city; however, this has
                        been abandoned due to community resistance. Network city contains no detail on implementation and as such should be resisted. 6. Albany, Geraldton, Bunbury could become
                        larger instead of the infilling of Perth. There is ability to expand these cities without loss of amenity to existing residents. 7. Activity nodes for development are being suggested
                        without detail, which is unacceptable. Employment in the activity nodes appears to be in service or tourism areas. These areas of employment are not sustainable and fluctuate

1   Report in Gen   160 Network city is underpinned by an attitude that 'planning knows best' and informing the community rather than engaging in dialogue. Essentially a marketing exercise to                  y n       NGO/c'ty/academic         i   Not applicable
                        determine the means of absorbing a pre-determine outcome, ie. population growth and how we can accommodate it. The assumption that Perth has to absorb all predicted
                        population growth shows: (i) a lack of holistic State and regional planning; (ii) a shallow interpretation of sustainability; (iii) a lack of appreciation of the value of existing
                        infrastructure, either currently under-utilised or capable of expansion in regional centres and country towns; and (iv) a failure to manage and direct urban growth for the benefit of
                        all West Australians.

1   Report in Gen   100 Several of these generic strategies are found in other government reports; they are 'safe' and reinforce the status quo rather than being used as tools for change.                               n n Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o       Perth

1   Report in Gen   103 Support for the breadth of approach. A concern that duplication of actions and cost shifting to local government does not occur and that sufficient resources being made                          n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o     Belmont
                        available for implementation. Support from State government to local government is essential for progression of Network city . It is important that local governments have input
                        into the development of more detailed policies associated with the Strategy.
1   Report in Gen   103 Network city is the first major update of the metropolitan planning framework since Metroplan was released in 1990. The strategies and actions are wide ranging and importantly                   n n Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o     Belmont
                        the document takes a holistic approach and endeavours to encompass environmental, heritage, transport, employment, industry, community values and urban growth issues.
                        Critically, it recognises the need for a whole of government and partnership-oriented approach and the vital importance of local government in delivering planning objectives, in
                        conjunction with a high level of community involvement. The City of Belmont is dealing with a number of issues that could benefit from this approach and would fit in with the
                        actions proposed.
1   Report in Gen   110 The overarching vision, values, objectives and themes of Network city are strongly supported                                                                                                      n n       Local gov't (outer area)      o    Joondalup
1   Report in Gen   116 Context and scope of Network city requires further work and clarification. While it is referred to as a community planning strategy it focuses heavily on the built and physical                  n y       Local gov't (outer area)      o      Swan
                        environment and pays little attention to the social and community development environment. Further, if the intention is that Network city will replace Metroplan, then it is
                        questionable whether its role is to be a community planning strategy, rather it should concentrate on being an urban development strategy. This may assist with narrowing the
                        scope of the Strategy to focus on key critical factors of the built environment and on a range of strategies and actions that both State and local governments have the capacity
                        and resources to implement successfully.
1   Report in Gen   116 It is the City's view that: (i) the built environment should be seen as a means to an end, not an end in itself, ie. the built environment facilitates quality of life and sustainability. (ii)   n y       Local gov't (outer area)      o       Swan
                        It is suggested that links to the State Sustainability Strategy should be reinforced as Network city is refined and that it develop a strong focus on coordinated urban management
                        and the delivery of infrastructure and services to meet its objectives, rather than viewing the existing planning environment as the primary mechansim for change. (iii) Finally,
                        clarity of context and scope could be enhanced through reference to the State Sustainability Strategy and other key State and metropolitan strategies, eg. State Planning
                        Strategy, the Metropolitan Transport Strategy, WA Greenhouse Strategy, Perth Air Quality Management Plan, State Water Quality Management Strategy, major corridor
                        Structure Plans etc. These relationships could be demonstrated through a digram or flow chart. The Strategy should also identify how it sits within the State Planning Framework.

1   Report in Gen   116 Need for discussion on the role of supporting development of regional areas outside of the metropolitan system, as attracting growth to these areas will impact on the overall                    n y       Local gov't (outer area)      o       Swan
                        sustainability of the metropolitan region.

                        community resistance to urban sprawl due to its environmental and social impact; increasing cost to Government of developing infrastrucutre in new fringe developments; need
                        for higher densities to accommodate population growth; and a trend towards population growth in outer areas with job growth concentrated around central Perth, resulting in
                        increased work related travel. Strongly supports the underlying principles of Network city and commends WAPC on including the provision of affordable housing as one of the
                        eight headline statements in an urban planning strategy. Housing is identified as central to the key Network city themes, in terms of housing affordability impacts on the locations
                        of development and the current mismatch between housing design (particualrly size) and demographic trends.

                        strategy. The result is a tendency to recommend non-binding actions such as the development of handbooks, registers, demonstration projects and advice, rather than binding
                        incentives or regulation. While appreciate that Network city may reflect the political necessities of the day, by opting for non-binding actions, it would be naive to expect the
                        strategy to address the issues it seeks to address without binding solutions.

                        Dialogue participants. The value of the Dialogue with the city process has therefore been overemphasised.

                          Further major elements definitions in this strategy do not appear on the A2 plan. Specific issues: (i) Stirling Highway has only been shown on Figure 1.3 and the accompanying
                          A2 plan from Claremont to and including its continuation as Mounts Bay Road. The section from Claremont to North Fremantle has not been represented although it is a major
                          thoroughfare. (ii) Stirling Highway is designated on Figure 1.3 and A2 plan as a Transport Corridor although it is flanked on both sides by a variety of commercial and civic
                          developments. Development along Canning Highway resembles that of Stirling Highway but it has been designated as an Activity Corridor. (iii) Figure 1.3 and the A2 plan show
                          Railway Parade an activity corridor although for much of its length it may function more as a transport route. (iv) The definition of activity corridor on page 14 discusses transport
                          with cursory mention of land uses that „will occur‟. Perhaps equal emphasis on transport and activities without the use of future tense as many of the designated activity corridors

                         both Strategic Regional Centres strategically (ie. the relevant Structure Plans) and statutorily (ie. zoning under the MRS), which stifles investment and commitments and detracts
                         from existing infrastructure that has been put in place to carry the Regional Centre Plan forward. Disagree that designation of the Strategic Regional Centres under the MCP was
                         based or influenced simply on retail floor space, as suggested in Network city and refers to MCP definition of Strategic Regional Centres. Similar issues apply to the Whitford

                           about the desirability of consolidation in appropriate locations (subject to the availability of services) and the review of housing strategies to consider the extent and practicability
                           of increasing housing densities. 2. That the Department undertake a study of urban growth drivers and the basis for locational decisions of business and other employment
                           generators, with a view to developing a better understanding of how growth can be managed to achieve a more efficient, self-sufficient and sustainable pattern of development in
                           the longer term.
1       1-02         241   Issue raised by a number of local governments is the need to consider long-term planning of Perth and Peel in a statewide context, with particular reference to the South West              n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                           region. The idea of long-term growth management needs to be considered further in the context of the overall development of the State and the growth of regional centres. This
                           involves consideration of the drivers of urban growth, with reference to employment and services as well as the locational preferences of the increasing number and proportion of
                           'footloose' retirees.
1      1-02(a)       110   City of Joondalup has been included in Area 2 which offers fewer opportunities than Area 1 for urban consolidation outside activity centres and corridors. While it is recognised           n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o    Joondalup
                           that the pattern of roads in the subdivisional layout of most residential areas in the City are not conducive to readily facilitating increased residential density and street
                           connectivity, there are nevertheless some opportunities to add additional housing and increase use of the activity centres and corridors. This subdivision layout also needs to be
                           taken into account in relation to achieving the objectives of Network city .
1      1-02(a)       110   The adverse impacts of battle-axe subdivision lay-outs on the amenity of existing streetscapes and social connection to the community need to be acknowledged. Such                         y y       Local gov't (outer area)    o    Joondalup
                           developments also place constraints on redevelopment opportunities in the future because of their layout and due to fragmentation of land ownership that results from this form
                           of subdivision.
1      1-02(a)       110   The plan is of a scale that does not clearly show which suburbs fall within the three defined areas (referred to here as Areas 1, 2 and 3). This may compromise public confidence           n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o    Joondalup

                           which development can occur would be a way of protecting some areas from urban growth whilst leaving corridors free for future development. The strategy as it currently is will
                           not limit sprawl at all, though it may slow it. A major issue here is how many people we wish to fit into the Perth Metropolitan area and how we wish to do it. Network city
                           completely ignores the first question, severely limiting our options for answering the second question. I find all of the arguments against using an UGB either irrelevant or
                           extremely weak.
1       1-03         237   Supported. Limiting urban sprawl should be based on the availability of natural resources such as water and minerals. Recommend the State government investigate the                        n y Resident of inner/middle area     i     Mullaloo

                           needs, rather that generating local housing strategies.
2      1-02(a)       240   Recommend that the government ensures that the land supply program for both greenfield and infill development is responsive to housing demand and takes account of                     n y      Development Industry         o   Not applicable

2      1-02(b)       116   DHW Action 1-2 (b) Recommend that rather than creating a new process of developing sub-regional housing strategies, utilise the current process of preparing Local Planning            n y    Local gov't (outer area)       o      Swan
                           Strategies. These can be place-based to take account of regional differences, as currently occurs in the City's Place Planning Program. This Program also integrates housing

2       2-02         89    Policy makers need to be able to respond quickly to internal and external (national and international) trends and respond quickly to make land available to meet demand. Failure       n y      Development Industry         o   Not applicable
                           to do so will impact on affordability. Affordability will also be impacted on by adding a levy to current developer contributions. There is a need to look at other mechanisms for

                           opportunities for residential purposes; 6. Recognition that the Town's Residential Character Study argues for the sustainability of traditional character and that densities need to
                           reflect that objective. With regard to these areas, Council would be prepared to give consideration to the establishment of a redevelopment authority to facilitate redevelopment

                           that needs to be considered is the impacts of commercial operations adjacent to residential developments, particularly in relation to noise and traffic generation, in order to
                           provide an appropriate level of amenity. (ii) Suggest that new housing in mixed use developments or adjacent to commercial uses could be required to provide soundproofing.
                           (iii) Support for the formulation of development control policies. In addition to a State Planning Policy, local authorities would need to prepare local policies that respond to local

                         affordability is not identified as a key objective of the Strategy and tends to be translated into actions for social housing rather than actions to facilitate home purchase,
                         particularly for the first home buyer. 'Affordable housing' is defined as a specific housing subset for entry level home purchase or private rental and relates primarily to
                         government or privately subsidised housing for low income earners. Provision of subsidised housing may not be sufficient to maintain housing affordability levels in the region.
                         Greater emphasis should be placed on protecting affordability levels within the region overall.

                         are already in various states of development in Western Australia; some of these are described in Shelter WA's State of Affordable Housing in Western Australia, 2004 and
                         National Shelter's 2004 Election Platform. Shelter WA strongly supports the notion of consolidating some of these measures into a statement of planning policy for affordable
                         private, public and community housing. This would be an appropriate way of of consolidating some of the existing proposals into a wide ranging effort to increase the amount of

                         promoted and facilitated in some locations that don't currently have equitable access, as actions relating to public transport will improve access to these locations over time. It is
                         easier to provide access after the built environment is built rather than retrofitting or redeveloping areas. This is especially relevant to outer metropolitan areas which have MRS

                         should also include a range of regulatory measures, eg. minimum density requirement for any development within a certain distance from transport nodes.

3      1-01(a)       134 Support idea of activity centres; however, concern with using encouragement rather than true planning and legislation to control sprawl, which requires a combination of design,        n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

3       1-02         92  60/40 ratio is a substantial challenge. Recommend that strategic densification be considered as a more appropriate strategy, particularly as the implications of the breakdown             n y      Development Industry         o   Not applicable
                         have not been clarified and therefore the economic, social and physical feasibility have not been demonstrated.

                         established to work with local authorities to achieve the 60/40 target, particularly in existing urban areas where there may be substantial opposition to infill. Further, consideration
                         needs to be given to current urban growth patterns, the difficulties of modifying these patterns and the cost efficiency and timeframe required to achieve the objectives. Network
                         city should place increased emphasis on innovative development solutions for greenfield sites.
3       1-02         94 There is a need to ensure that an increased focus on growth from urban consolidation does not lead to inadequate planning for expansion.                                                    n y    Development Industry           o   Not applicable
3       1-02         100 The identification of specific areas of densification with the Network city framework will have the impact of increasing prices on land and property within these land parcels. This       y y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o       Perth
                         will adversely affect affordable housing if a method is not entrenched to avoid profiteering.
3       1-02         103 The 60/40 ratio roughly reverses the current ratio. Under the City of Belmont Housing Strategy, a range in coding of R-20-40 applied throughout the residential area, providing a          y y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o     Belmont
                         spread of housing types and choice and avoiding enclaves of a particular. A review of the Strategy after five years found that while it achieved housing choice, there was no
                         increase in population rather a declining and aging population. Demonstrates that density by itself does not increase population. The City has re-examined its density codes and
                         encouraging families into the area continues to be a prime objective. Network city needs to acknowledge that at the local level many communities are opposed to radical
                         changes in housing form and increases in density. Higher densities in inappropriate locations can alter the character and streetscape of areas, which may work against
                         objectives to attract families to the area.
3       1-02         116 Support for infill where it takes account of local context, in particular local character (which requires further defining) and amenity; however, there will be some challenges in         n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                         some areas, eg.Beechboro and Ballajura. Also Area 1 suburbs are likely to have greatest sense of place and identity. An explanation of how the 60/40 target was derived may
                         assist with implementation across the region. It is critical that the WAPC support implementation through endorsement of Town Planning Schemes, rezoning and structure plans.

3       1-02         116 Query how 60/40 growth target was arrived at. Background data to support the formula should be included as an appendix to ensure accountability and transparency.                          n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
3       1-02         116 Query implications of 60/40 targets for areas already zoned MRS Urban, especially where there are approved Structure Plans.                                                                n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
3       1-02         116 Support that a blanket application of the strategy is not appropriate and suggests that the Strategy contain stronger emphasis that the 60/40 target is aspirational rather than           n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                         mandatory. The City is attempting to get a better understanding of how the targets might apply to the Swan region through the preparation of an Urban Growth Strategy.
3       1-02         116 The implications of directing 40% of growth to new urban areas needs to be more clearly developed and understood in the context of existing urban growth plan and could lead               n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                         to a review of the North-East Corridor Structure Plan and North-East Corridor Extension Strategy, plus a refocusing of redevelopment strategies and targets for land currently
                         zoned MS Urban, especially those with approved Structure Plans.
3       1-02         116 While supportive of infill, there should be a greater focus on increasing densities and more efficient staging of development in new areas. This will ensure land and infrastructure       n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                         provision is more efficient over the next 20-30 years and hopefully alleviate the need to develop new urban areas in the future. This requires implementation through statutory
                         guidance for density and housing choice/mix. E213
3       1-02         120 Support the 60/40 target as a practical way of reducing urban sprawl.                                                                                                                      n n        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
3       1-02         120 Appears to be an implicit assumption that new dwellings within existing areas will be spread reasonably evenly around the urban area. Notes that local resistance to higher                n y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
                         densities may make such an even spread difficult to achieve on an entirely voluntary basis. The solution lies in active encouragement of higher densities by designing a system
                         of appropriate incentives and regulation, eg. financial bonuses for local governments that achieve particular densities, setting minimum targets for population or housing growth
                         at the sub-regional level, or restricting the number of parking bays available per dwelling.
3       1-02         124 Strategy is contradicted by there being enough zoned land in new areas to accommodate 67% (as opposed to target of 40%) of housing growth.                                                 y n       Business Community          o    Cannington
3       1-02         126 Recommend 60/40 target as a guide rather than mandatory. Further, if this represents current trends and is acceptable to WAPC, this should be reflected in the Strategy.                   n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o     Kwinana
3       1-02         130 Strong objection to any further blanket changes to the residential coding within the residential area, or related changes to the housing density of the existing R-Codes, that the         y y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o      Wilson
                         Government might propose. It is equally important that the planning authorities maintain the status quo in established local communities where the majority of surveyed residents
                         have indicated that they are opposed to higher density.

3       1-02         142 Support allocation of targets. However, Network city does not provide adequate justification for the 60/40 split. Issues such as ageing infrastructure, community expectations and n y    Development Industry                  o   Not applicable
                         consultation process must be further addressed. The percentage split should have flexibility to accommodate changes in housing demand and other economic and social
                         imperatives. Further, State and local authority commitment will be necessary, as local stakeholders may be resistant to consolidation and infill. Recommend Table 1 and 2 be
                         supported by a plan detailing the Planning Sectors.
3       1-02         143 Opposed to higher density in the area. Contrasts the community spirit of R-20 zoned areas with absence of R-30 areas within St James. Negative impacts of higher zonings           y y Resident of inner/middle area            o     St James
                         identified as: lack of upgrading of water, sewer and power to meet higher demand creating problems; vehicle congestion on road, verges and footpaths; increased crime.
                         Recommend that councils control density as they know their suburbs and residents should not have higher densities imposed if they have indicated they do not want it.

                         built heritage is evident and take consideration of the following points: 1. Retention of heritage and character buildings vs. requirement for infill development. 2. Economic
                         development of activity or than centres vs. neighbouring residential amenity's. creation of a sense of place. 3. density vs. residential amenity, 4. affordable housing vs. market
                         trends and economic growth. 5. current road widening requirements and transport objectives vs. retention of streetscape value and significant built heritage. Further recommend
                         that the WAPC allow for an equitable balance of infill development within existing urban areas to avoid disproportional burden of infill development being placed in individual local
                         governments.
3       1-02         146 Recommend further clarity for the 60/40 target and the need for a more strategic approach to the UGB.                                                                                     n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Rockingham

3       1-02         165 Support 60/40 target and that (i) priority be given to consolidation in existing areas to limit urban expansion. (ii) Strategy lacks recognition of local opposition to urban             n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o      S-J'dale
                         consolidation in traditional low density neighbourhoods. (iii) Should also clearly quantify and address difficulties faced in the pursuit of consolidation, particularly given the role
                         that cheap fringe land has played in the management of housing prices. (iv) Will need to ensure an appropriate policy context exists for the establishment and fulfilment of
                         minimum thresholds for activity centres, in relation to employment, commercial space, populations etc. (v) Recommend that the strategy specify minimum densities to ensure
                         increased densities result in increased population densities.
3       1-02         165 The need to encourage community development in partnership with neighbourhood design is generally not mentioned in the strategy; it should deal with the ability of new and               n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o      S-J'dale
                         infill neighbourhood development to facilitate and heighten community growth through an appropriate plan and approach, This is particularly important if the decentralisation of

3       1-02         166 Opposed to blanket higher density in the Bentley/St James area. Identify that where there have been higher densities a number of problems have occurred, ie: increased crime              y n        NGO/c'ty/academic          o      Bentley
                         impacting on safety and feelings of safety; more vehicles, creating congestion on footpaths and therefore affecting pedestrian access; insufficient capacity for amenities and
                         infrastructure; less owner occupancy and large number of rentals; lower property values as a result of properties not being cared for; altered streetscapes and loss of street
                         appeal. It is important that local character and public open space are maintained.
3       1-02         172 Recommend that (i) the 60/40 target is not pursued as a matter of fixed ideology. (ii) Recommend that it is reviewed over time in relation to desirability, practicality and              y y    Local government general       o
                         achievability as a principal objective of Network city . (iii) A particular consideration is the importance of the impact of higher densities on local character, heritage and sense of
                         place. (iv) Identify limited opportunities for infill due to current form and distribution of development in western suburbs, including for land on railway reserve land and within
                         identified railway catchments. Therefore support a targeted approach with clear housing objectives rather than a 'blanket' approach to infill, ie. setting aside land close to railway
                         stations for disadvantaged socio-economic groups.
3       1-02         173 Clarification sought as to which suburbs would be designated medium density and which high density. Concerns expressed regarding impact of increased population and                       y y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Joondalup

3       1-02         176 Support for infill development: however, there is a need to ensure that an increased focus on growth and urban consolidation does not lead to inadequate planning for                        n y    Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         expansion. Argue that the principles relating to infrastructure and transit oriented development can equally be applied to centres in new developments and that the strategy
                         therefore place increased emphasis on innovative and sustainable forms of greenfield development. Argue that urban consolidation should not be seen as a panacea and
                         identify a number of negative impacts: ageing infrastructure, traffic congestion, displacement of economic activity and a reluctance at the local level to accept higher densities.
                         Recommendation: It is essential that the opportunities to make more effective use of land on the urban fringe are recognised and that the government works with the industry to
                         ensure that housing outcomes (affordability, appropriateness and choice) are positive for all residents regardless of location.
3       1-02         201 60/40 urban development mix: the relevant department is currently working towards this achieving this geographic emphasis. Regional strategic directions for focusing on                     n y      State government         o   Not applicable
                         consolidation must be based on a strategic approach.
3       1-02         201 60/40 urban development mix, key elements in a strategic approach should include: a strategic identification of areas requiring particular consolidation initiatives involving (inter        n y      State government         o   Not applicable
                         alia) the state government's TOD working group and a review of Metro centres etc.
3       1-02         201 60/40 urban development mix, key elements in a strategic approach should include the implementation of a delivery framework at local authority level (including embodiment of                n y      State government         o   Not applicable
                         strategic 60-40 principles in local housing strategies, town planning schemes and district and local structure plans). Local authority commitment will be necessary as local
                         stakeholders may present resistance to strategic infill projects.
3       1-02         232 Regarding 60% development in existing urban areas. Planning for infrastructure is based on future land release projections provided through MDP and land zonings specified in                n y      State government         o   Not applicable
                         the region and district town planning schemes. Constraints to the upgrading of existing pipelines, storages and treatment utilities will impact on services for significant infill
                         developments. Impact of brownfield development on water consumption is not yet well understood. Recommendation that urban infill developments be identified in the MDP.
                         Appropriate cost apportionment mechanisms for reticulation upgrades may be required.
3       1-02         234 Identify one of effects of infill as the loss of backyard space and mature trees. Ad hoc redevelopment in inner and middle suburban lots has tainted the idea of higher residential          n y      NGO/c'ty/academic        o   Not applicable
                         densities and fuelled concern that public open space will be insufficient to service growing local populations. Recommend an additional action: 'Review open space requirements
                         and measures to protect mature trees when developing local planning strategies'.
3       1-02         240 60/40, concern that the proposal to direct most new housing to established areas rather than greenfield locations may not align with where people who want to buy homes are                  y n    Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         able to buy them.
3       1-02         240 60/40, 'existing urban areas' needs to be specifically mapped and shown in Network city . It also means that lot production tabulation under the MDP will need to be reconfigured            n y    Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         to reflect lots and dwellings in the existing urban areas (as defined) versus new growth areas, as compared to current data which refers to lots approved in the inner, medium
                         and outer regions and for each LGA.
3       1-02         240 Recommend that details on how the Strategy's proposal for 60% of new dwellings to be located in existing urban areas and 40% in new greenfield locations will be implemented,                n y    Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         monitored and enforced should be made publicly available as soon as possible.
3       1-02         240 60/40, clarification also sought regarding whether the split applies to all dwellings constructed or only those on newly subdivided lots, bearing in mind that dwellings are generally       n y    Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         approved at local government level and subdivision by the WAPC. This means that the respective roles of local government and WAPC in collecting and coordinating data to
                         implement the policy will need to be determined. A public reporting system will also need to be established to keep industry and community informed of progress and any
                         attempts to constrain or promote further subdivision or development.
3       1-02         241 General support for the need to coordinate the development of future urban growth areas and ensure services keep pace with development. However, note that the 60/40 split                   n y   Local government general    o   Not applicable
                         begs question of what will happen after existing urban areas are 'full' and how a reduction in rate of peripheral development might impact on the viability of peripheral activity and
                         employment centres and housing affordability.
3       1-02         241 Proposals for (i) a general intensification of existing urban areas are of widespread concern to local governments. (ii) Some confusion as to how global targets will influence              y y   Local government general    o   Not applicable
                         housing targets at the local level. (iii) Also note a lack of recognition of existing local government initiatives. (iv) One of most frequent criticisms of 60/40 target is lack of
                         substantiation and demonstrated applicability. (v) Strategy directions are not new; however, while there are opportunities for redevelopment of brownfield sites and infill, there is
                         substantial opposition by many communities to sacrificing character and amenity for a marginal increase in dwelling density.
3       1-02         241 Of particular concern to councils with infill targets (other than those identified) is who will bear the responsibility and cost for upgrading existing infrastructure that is not capable   n y   Local government general    o   Not applicable
                         of dealing with increased useage. While the use of developer contributions goes some way to providing infrastructure for new subdivisions, this concept is difficult to apply in the
                         case of infill. The cost-benefit analysis to the community in terms of infrastructure upgrades required for infill vs new infrastructure (with developer contributions) needs to be
                         identified.
3       1-02         243 Network city is geared towards infill development in the urban sense. This does not allow for a range of lot sizes and housing styles to be developed. The Shire has numerous                n y    Local gov't (outer area)   o    Mundaring
                         two to four hectare lots which may be capable of infill style development and will be explored as a part of the review of TPS No. 3. Recommend that Network city recognises the
                         potential infill and lifestyle choices offered by the Hills.

                         solution to low and middle income households for a range of reasons. Recommend that Network city include a clearly delineated UGB.
3       1-03         124 There is a contradiction between achieving housing affordability and stopping subdivision. This has not been addressed.                                                                   n y        Business Community           o    Cannington

3       1-03         134 While Strategy 1-2 refers to three indicative areas, in actual fact there is no real land division, as sprawl already connects the three areas. However Strategy 1-3 and Appendix B       n y         NGO/c'ty/academic           o   Not applicable
                         dismiss the concept of an urban growth boundary (UGB). Concern that Network city does not allow for a comprehensive and controlled plan, rather one that will hand control to
                         the development sector. Recommend that UGB could be easily used within Network city and should be located around activity centres rather than a single UGB around the
                         region. This would create truly independent communities that increase access to open space while consolidating transport needs.
3       1-03         147 While a UGB alone may not solve urban sprawl, it is one of the few measures available to slow it. The argument that infinite growth in outer suburbs ensures housing affordability        n y         NGO/c'ty/academic           o   Not applicable
                         is a fallacy. There is a need to consider the full costs of sprawl for individual home owners and the public as a whole, ie.. costs on infrastructure, impact on traffic congestion and
                         ecosystems etc. Concern that UGB has not been included, particularly given strong support for this at Dialogue with the City.
3       1-03         149 Urge WAPC to ensure the final strategy reflects the outcomes of the Dialogue with the City event at which more than 70% of the 1100 participants supported the concept of a               y y         NGO/c'ty/academic           o   Not applicable

3       1-03         174 No substantial assessment of the need to artificially restrict urban expansion; (i) recommend that no action be taken until this occurs. (ii) Concern that a staging strategy will       y y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         remove flexibility from landowners and generate development monoplolies at the edge of the development front. (iii) Reject the argument that frontal development has
                         substantial costs to the whole community, as developers primarily fund infrastructure. Acknowledge that government funds major infrastructure facilities, eg. waste water
                         treatment plants; however, these new services are intended to service both existing and new areas.
3       1-03         178 WAPC 1-3 (a) Strategy is too weak: propose development of a UGB to demonstrate a change in direction and to highlight the need to use existing urban areas more effectively.             n y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

3       1-03         232 WAPC Action 1-3 (a) The key objective of land planning agencies should be to resolve issues before land is rezoned as in WAPC Action 7-1 (d). Include in the WAPC 'staging               n y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         strategy' mechanisms, at the Region Scheme level, to address key infrastructure issues as part of the rezoning process; refer to the City of Wanneroo 'Smart Growth Strategy'.

3       1-03         234 Recommend that a UGB is added to the Strategy to set a clear line in the sand as to where urban development may occur in the medium term. Zoning controls under the MRS                  n y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                         have not been used effectively to manage urban growth. Express lack of confidence in current regulatory and market measures changing the direction of urban growth. Note that
                         a UGB was supported at Dialogue with the city , but left out of the draft due to developer opposition. The review of the growth boundary idea in the strategy (Appendix B) is
                         inadequate and does not support its rejection.
3       1-03         240 Recommend that the government should reject any proposal to introduce an urban growth boundary as the technique for managing urban growth of the Perth and Peel regions.                 n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         Support the proposal to manage urban growth through the timed release of development land, based on developer intentions and infrastructure commitments, via an improved
                         MDP and the statutory provisions of the Metropolitan and Peel Region Schemes.
3       1-03         241 Generally supports strategy and many of the actions accord with current practice. Note however that the management of urban growth towards a more sustainable outcomes                   n y    Local government general     o   Not applicable
                         must address not only the location and form of housing but also the distribution of employment and services. While housing development is amenable to control through
                         conventional planning mechanisms, the distribution of employment is more difficult to manage.

3      1-03(a)       116 Strategies relating to growth management will need to be further developed to provide the necessary direction at the sub-regional and local level. The City is well placed, through     n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                         its own strategic urban growth planning processes, to implement a demonstration model for managing growth in the N-E corridor, linked to the shifting of demand and the
                         delivery of supporting infrastructure to achieve Network city objectives. The City strongly supports the use of the MDP, Infrastructure Co-ordinating Committee and Infrastructure
                         Plans to better manage urban growth and questions why these have not been identified as priority actions.
3      1-03(a)       126 WAPC Action 1-3 (a) Recommend that, while an enhanced role for the Metropolitan Development Program is supported, individual rezoning and subdivision applications should               n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o     Kwinana
                         be determined on their merits, not on inclusion (or otherwise) of land within the enhanced Metropolitan Development Program. Applications beyond the MDP areas may warrant
                         additional justification by proponents.

3      1-03(a)       149 Recommend (i) strengthening action to ensure that the WAPC implements a strong staging program for future urban growth in the region. Public sector infrastructure investment           n y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
                         must be coordinated more effectively and used to trigger future land release according to a set of sustainability principles which line up with the spatial plan. (ii) Also
                         recommends a UGB to unambiguously define the limits to urban expansion. At the very least the UGB should be drawn at the limit of the land currently zoned urban, which
                         already provides a land bank for 30 years of further urban development.
3      1-03(a)       158 Recommend: (i) WAPC implements a strong staging program for future urban growth and that development will only be supported when it is in accordance with the staged                    n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                         program. Further, that public sector infrastructure investment be coordinated more effectively and used to trigger future land releases according to a set of sustainability
                         principles that line up with the spatial plan. (ii) Strengthen any staging program with new regulatory policies such as SPP 5aa. (ii) include a UGB to unambiguously define the
                         limits to urban expansion. At the very least this should be drawn at the limit of the land currently zoned urban. (iv) Develop a process which prevents any new rezoning from
                         urban deferred to urban unless it can be deomstrated that TOD is the priority approach. (v) Strenghten references to the cost of development failing to reflect location-related
                         cost differentials by developing relevant strategies and actions.
3      1-03(a)       175 Recommend that the proposal to manage urban growth through a development staging strategy is not implemented until a much more substantial assessment has been                          n y       Development Industry        o   Not applicable
                         completed of both the need for and the implications of such action. Particular concern is that the proposal will remove flexibility and generate monopolies at the edge of the
                         development front.

                         role it plays in development and infrastructure provision.
3      1-03(a)       240 Recommend that out of sequence urban land should not be subject to higher infrastructure costs than in-sequence urban land if appropriately zoned and supported by an                   y y       Development Industry        o   Not applicable

                         delivered in the ordered and sequential manner proposed. Identifies negative impacts as: disadvantage to developers and new home buyers in certain areas, unnecessary
                         constraint on land supply and consequent increases in land prices.
3      1-03(a)       240 The proposed approach to sequential development is seen as flawed because developers do not purchase land in sequential tracts. If a land owner with land on the urban front            y n       Development Industry        o   Not applicable
                         is unable, or decides not to proceed, then landowners next in line in the agreed urban development path are either left waiting or will be forced to pay higher infrastructure costs.
                         This cost, plus the cost associated with the risk, will be incorporated into lot prices and eventually passed onto the homebuyer. If development is not allowed to proceed it will
                         impact on overall land supply and affordability within the region. Using infrastructure costs in this way is inequitable and goes against the established principles of applying
                         developer contributions for infrastructure on the basis of need, nexus, equity and accountability (as per WAPC Planning Bulletin 18 on Developer Contributions for Infrastructure).

3      1-03(e)       37    Potential negative impact of minimum density codes; eg local governments introducing general down zonings. Policy should be preceded by consultations with local                            n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o     Armadale

3      1-03(e)       79    It is difficult to see how minimum density zoning could be legislated. Its application in established residential areas would likely conflict with other objectives such as the retention   n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o   Victoria Park
                           of character housing, housing diversity and potentially better design outcomes.
3      1-03(e)       130   Strong objection to any suggested change to the R-Codes to impose minimum density requirements instead of maximum density requirements.                                                     y n        NGO/c'ty/academic          o      Wilson

                           established areas. (ii) Revisions to Residential Design Codes should also investigate a change in minimum parking standards so that the number of parking bays per dwelling is
                           reduced to take into consideration proximity to public transport, activity centres and facilities. (iii) Support minimum residential densities in addition to current maximum residential
                           densities as this will ensure that areas coded a higher density in close proximity to public transport will not be developed at low or medium density, contrary to WAPC's intention,
                           as currently occurs.
3      1-03(f)       116   WAPC/Local government Action 1-3 (f) supported. However, a review of Rural Resources (although not adequately explained) would be time and resource intensive.                              n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                           Recommend instead that WAPC should review SPP 2.5 and the Metropolitan Rural Policy to clearly define rural areas, lot sizes and amount of land to be zoned for new
                           special/rural or rural-residential development. Do not believe AgWA is in a position to provide resources or bets placed to lead this review, rather it is the responsibility of WAPC
                           in conjunction with local governments.
3      1-03(f)       234   Recommend introduction of stronger statutory land use controls and consider financial incentives, eg. rate rebates or alternative land valuations, to protect rural land on the             n y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
                           periphery of the region. Productive agricultural land is an important resource that should be maintained; keeping primary production close to urban markets could become more
                           important if transport energy costs climb.
3      1-03(g)       125   Propose changes to the regulations applying to R-Codes to notionally rezone all lots directly across from lots of higher densities to that higher density. Notional rezoning means          n y Resident of inner/middle area     i   Scarborough
                           that owners of such lots are eligible to apply for redevelopment to apply for the higher density and such applications should only be refused if specific and significant objections
                           can be demonstrated. Changes will have the following benefits: (i) will effectively implement what is already policy, ie... the back fence line boundary standard; (ii) will
                           demonstrate to councils and the public that the Government is serious about density increases; (iii) it will lead to faster overall increases in density.
3      1-03(g)       110   WAPC Action 1-3 (g) Comments: (I) Local housing strategies could be incorporated into local town planning schemes to give them statutory effect. In this way, local housing                 n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Joondalup
                           strategies could assist in fast tracking the approval process. (ii) Applying minimum residential densities in addition to the current maximum residential densities is supported as
                           this will ensure that areas specifically coded a higher density in close proximity to transport routes will not be developed at low or medium density, contrary to WAPC's intention,
                           as currently occurs.
3      1-03(g)       126   WAPC/Local government Action 1-3 (g) Recommend a review of the subdivision approval and R-Codes approach and that use of minimum and maximum lot sizes reflected in                         n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o     Kwinana
                           density coding is appropriate to ensure effective use of urban infrastructure and facilities.
3      1-03(g)       234   Recommend that fast tracking proposals should not limit public scrutiny or input. Concern that WAPC will become advocates for developers and query who will protect public                  n y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable

3       2-02         241   Most of the actions appear to represent the continuation and refinement of existing initiatives and to that extent are generally supported.                                                 n n Local government general          o   Not applicable

                           some of the areas for which targets are to be identified are outside the control of local government, eg. housing tenure, affordability, employment. In some instances (eg.
                           employment), factors affecting locational decisions of businesses are not understood and there are no established and accepted mechanisms to determine such decisions. Past
                           experience has shown that zoning of land by itself does not ensure that targets are met and it is important that effective mechanisms be identified and appropriate resources

                         assessment or further complicate/extend the current planning process; and how the working group will oversee/coordinate the local governments' planning approval processes.

                         expectations of landowners wanting to subdivide land for higher density residential properties, residents opposition to infill or higher densities and the potential for a diversity of

                         that will be counter productive to Network city. (ie. Cannington Strategic Regional Centre meets a large majority of Network city priority strategies, eg. Strategies 3-2, 4-3, 6-7, 7-
                         1).
3      2-10(f)       156 Supported. Recommend there is a need to reform the Strata Titles Act 1985 (WA) to better facilitate redevelopments of strata titles properties and would appreciate opportunity           n y      Development Industry         o   Not applicable
                         to make a more detailed submission on this issue. There is also a need to introduce community or master titles to facilitate modern project development and to introduce

                         initial stages. (v) The community's desire for a safe city is not reflected in the values or key objectives. (vi) Need for definition of sense of place. (vii) Need to define parameters
                         for density for new urban areas at R-20, choice of housing and ways to encourage smaller homes. (viii) Need to discuss encouraging longevity of built form and recycling of

3       3-03         72 The strategy's bias towards high density development downgrades and devalues issues of character, heritage and residential amenity and makes no concession or allowance for                 n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o     Mt Lawley

                         line with the legislative requirement for public authorities to develop and implement Disability Access and Inclusion Plans, all infrastructure and access design incorporates
                         universal design principles. To achieve this, universal design will be incorporated into all WAPC strategic and statutory planning requirements. This would include any planning
                         tools, such as BASIX, that may be adopted in the future.

                         The cost of infrastructure to service these areas is largely unknown as there is limited available information on current infrastructure capacity. Spare land capacity (which is yet to
                         be quantified) will not necessarily equate with spare infrastructure capacity. Without the information provided through a mapping exercise, residents will continue to be surprised
                         and object to higher density redevelopment and developers will be asked to pick up the cost of amplifying infrastructure and services to support proposals.

                         the preservation of every bush and wetland site regardless of social, economic and environmental cost will lead to an increase in urban sprawl as development leapfrogs such

                         relinquish their land for development or be 'holding out' for a better sale price and this again may result in leapfrogging of the urban development front.

                           provided with an appropriate range of community facilities. This issue is particularly important in light of the City's Community Infrastructure Needs Study and the Public Accounts
                           Committee Inquiry into Developer Contributions for Costs Associated with Local Developments (October 2004).
3       7-04         116   A concern is that the hidden costs of development beyond the urban fringe need to be taken into account and that infrastructure is not the only issue of public cost associated        n y     Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                           with fringe development. Social and environmental considerations should also inform decision making regarding urban growth management.
3       7-04         156   Recommend Government debt as a viable way to fund infrastructure. This recommendation supported by research by the Allen Consulting Group. Developer levies identified as              n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                           bad public policy because they directly threaten jobs, investment and housing affordability and are therefore not supported.
3       7-04         158   This strategy links to reference on page 20 to cost of development failing to reflect location-related cost differential. Unfortunately this point did not result in a corresponding   n y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                           strategy or actions and the situation remains that the public sector subsidises development on the urban fringe to a far greater extent in Perth than in other Australian cities.
3       7-04         232   Add another key action is needed ie. WAPC Minimise infrastructure costs by identifying and protecting existing and future infrastructure early in the land planing process and         n y        State government         o   Not applicable

                           penalises one land owner and provides incentives to another in order to provide benefit to government. Query the current development costs for existing vs new growth areas.

3      7-04(a)       94    This action is not supported. Recommend that incentives be offered to developers to develop infill locations rather than penalise developers who meet the demand for new               y y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                           housing in outer urban areas, as per WAPC Action 7-3 (e) which is supported. It should also be recognised that infill development is not without significant infrastructure costs
                           and therefore the same incentives should be apply to frontal urban development.
3      7-04(a)       116   Do not necessarily support non-frontal development as may not lead to most efficient provision of infrastructure or services and can often leave communities without transport or      y n     Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan

3      7-04(a)       174   Network city does not clarify or define what is meant by frontal development. Leapfrogging is similarly not defined.                                                                   y y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable

3      7-04(a)       176   Concern regarding impact of developer contributions on housing affordability: developer contributions do impact on housing affordability. There is a need to ensure that house         n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                           and land prices and supply are not adversely impacted by introducing increased developer contributions for frontal development or development beyond the urban front.

3      7-04(a)       176 Concern that inappropriately high levels of developer contributions for development will be imposed for development in frontal areas or in areas beyond the urban front as a             n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         means of controlling urban form. Recommendation: There is a general industry view that prefunding arrangements for the provision of major, necessary infrastructure works to
                         developments beyond the urban front are appropriate. These arrangements should clearly relate to the costs associated with service extensions and should be for prefunding
                         only - the cost should eventually be borne by the responsible agency.
3      7-04(a)       232 The Public Accounts Committee has recommended that developers pay for the extra costs associated with leapfrogging from the urban front. The extra costs should also cover               n y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         ongoing operation and maintenance costs associated with the distance of the development. The Water Corporation has policies and procedures to deal with infrastructure costs
                         for non-frontal and distant developments based on business risk management.
3      7-04(a)       240 Recommend that developer contributions for infrastructure should adhere to the principles of need, nexus, equity and accountability, with an overriding objective of maintaining         n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         housing affordability. Query findings of the Public Accounts Committee Inquiry on Developer Contributions that leapfrog developments be required to completely fund extensions
                         to infrastructure, because it failed to differentiate between development on land zoned and approved for urban development and land which is not yet zoned for development.
                         Network city also fails to make this distinction. Argue that the outcome for developers would be unfair and illogical. Determining infrastructure charges on the basis of urban
                         growth policy rather than the established principles is inappropriate and, by providing a policy mechanism to load infrastructure costs in return for approvals, will lead to planning
                         approval 'blackmail'.
3      7-04(a)       240 Recommend that policy change on urban form should be accompanied by a more equitable policy on urban infrastructure funding so that the costs of urban growth are carried                n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         by the whole urban community, not just new home buyers. Concern that sustainability policy measures are being used to defer government spending on infrastructure and to
                         shift infrastructure costs onto new home buyers. The environmental gain of such policies relative to the delivery of more sustainable metropolitan and regional infrastructure over
                         time is yet to be demonstrated. As a matter of principle, charges for infrastructure on new residential development should only be applied to fund increments to local
                         infrastructure which are related directly to and required at the time of development (eg. local roads, drainage, sewerage, local parks). Community-wide infrastructure (eg.
                         schools, trunk transport, major water and sewerage infrastructure) should be paid for by the whole region through general taxation measures.
3      7-04(a)       242 Recommend that the emphasis of this action be changed to ensure that charges for non-frontal developments reflect the true cost of providing infrastructure in those locations           y y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         (ie. not being subsidised), rather than implying the imposition of an artificially inflated price.
3      7-04(a)       242 The Department is of the view that any expansion of the matters for which developer contributions may be sought should be weighed carefully against the potential impact on              n y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         residential land prices and hence housing affordability.

4       1-01         95    It appears that the entire urban area of Mandurah is categorised 'existing urban area', although this is difficult to determine.                                                          n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Mandurah
4       1-01         96    Recommend that the potential future development of West Martin and Maddington/Kenwick be delineated in Network city , as these areas are shown on Metroplan and                           n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Gosnells
                           considerable resources have been directed towards progressing strategic planning for these areas.
4       1-01         103   Identification of Belmont as an older area with opportunities to strengthen networks and centres will mean that the City needs to explore and market the concept of higher                n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o    Belmont
                           residential densities and mixed uses around its 'centres'. The planning basis of Network city is already in place in Belmont. 'Greenways' represent a significant environmental
                           task.
4       1-01         116   Comments: (i) Query size of activity centre at Ellenbrook and identification as a Regional Centre is not reflected. Any changes to the size of centres should be considered as part       n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o      Swan
                           of the review of the Metropolitan Centres Policy. Reference to Figure 1.3 showing location and relative scale of each centre at 2030 should be indicated on the figure itself. (ii)
                           Question location of activity centre directly north-west of Midland; should be removed and proposed Albion Town activity centre moved further north. (iii) Need to identify
                           Bullsbrook Town Centre as a future town centre. (iv) Need to recognise South Guildford and Hazelmere as other Activity Centres. Bellevue is considered a local industrial area
                           only;
4       1-01         121   Recommend the following issues to be addressed in the document: (i) Transport planning to address the impacts on regional traffic on the Claremont Town Centre and                        n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o    Claremont
                           surrounding residential areas; (ii) Identify the expected number of additional dwellings required to be accommodated by the Town; (iii) Identify who will fund the infrastructure
                           upgrade required to accommodate additional dwellings in the Town.
4       1-01         124   Object to proposals that will potentially compromise the future development of Cannington City Centre as per current planning and initiatives and specifically to the downgrading         y n       Business Community          o   Cannington
                           of Cannington City Centre.
4       1-01         124   Challenges interpretation of Cannington Strategic Regional Centre in the document. Appears to refer to Westfield Carousel Regional Shopping Centre building. However,                     y y       Business Community          o   Cannington
                           through the Metropolitan Centres Policy the 'City Centre' was defined as the area that extends between the Cannington Railway Station and the Canning River. The latter meets
                           the requirements of an activity centre as set out in Network city and in fact is the best placed of all metropolitan centres, apart from the CBD, having the highest level of
                           accessibility and serving the greatest population outside of the CBD. Concern that Network city compromises the ongoing and progressive work being undertaken in
                           Cannington, based on the Metropolitan Centres Policy. This compromises the investment of business owners in the area on the strength of the Policy.
4       1-01         133   The Spatial plan and strategy will have greatest impact on the ARA Redevelopment Area in the planning and position of activity centres and transport corridors. It focuses on the         n y        State government           o    Armadale
                           strategic role of the Armadale City Centre and consolidation of urban areas. Specific comments: (i) Support nomination of Armadale Road as a transport corridor, however
                           recommend that the impact on existing and future residential communities (Brookdale Precinct) must be carefully evaluated by DPI.
4       1-01         133   Recommend that activity centres be adopted in the Brookdale area once structure planning is completed in 2006. (i) Forrestdale Business Park is shown as a Tier 3 activity                n y        State government           o    Armadale
                           centre; however, this is not the ARA's intent and in fact its Redevelopment Scheme does not permit housing and discrete retail uses within the precinct. Following extensive
                           community consultation, this precinct is aimed at providing service commercial, highway service, mixed business and industrial uses.
4       1-01         133   Network city will need to be amended to clarify this role and assess the ramifications on planning of the surrounding areas. (ii) Kelmscott District Centre is shown as a Tier 4          n y        State government           o    Armadale
                           activity centre; however, works to create an at grade crossing between the two halves of the centre will help to unify the centre, resulting in a likely lift in the range and order of
                           activities the District Centre could support. (iii) The location of proposed Tier 4 activity centres on the intersection of Ranford Rd with Warton Southern River Roads respectively
                           are in conflict with the presence of existing and proposed reserves in the Southern River/Forrestdale/Brookdale/Wungong Structure Plan and may need to be re-evaluated.

4       1-01         243 Recommendations: 1. That the concept and extent of activity corridors be reviewed with reference to the implications for viability and development of activity centres and the              n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o   Mundaring
                         efficiency of the regional road network. 2. That the depiction of specific activity corridors and local activity centres be removed from the Network city Framework (Figure 1.3), but
                         that the planning of appropriate activity centres and activity corridors be rather addressed through local strategies. Such strategies should be identified as part of the key action
                         required for the implementation of Network city , being prepared in accordance with the proposed new centres policy. 3. That the existing local commercial strategies directed
                         towards the development of multi-function activity centres, be acknowledged as being relevant to the implementation of the Network city strategy.
4      1-01(a)       48 Metropolitan centres policy broadened to include 'mixed use-high density' so retail floor space limits may be increased.                                                                     n y Resident of inner/middle area     i    Bateman

4      1-01(a)       70 Strongly agrees that the definition of 'centres' should be broadened to encompass non-commercial centres such as educational institutions, hospitals, industrial areas and                   n y Resident of inner/middle area     i   Mt Hawthorn
                         entertainment hubs. These 'new' centres should be reinforced with support from all levels of government in terms of improving infrastructure, public and private transport
                         opportunities and associated supporting and/or complementary land uses.
4      1-01(a)       235 Support for notion of activity centres to create an atmosphere that is more 'alive' and enjoyable. Identified benefits as increased demand and opportunities for businesses,                n n Resident of inner/middle area     i   North Perth

4      1-01(a)       60    The proposal to extend the definition of centres beyond retail functions to incorporate a broad range of activities including housing choice and employment accessible locations is n y        Local gov't (outer area)    o    Wanneroo
                           strongly supported (Strategy 1.1), along with the notion of introducing specialised centres and industrial centres. A report by Syme Marmion argues that the Network city concept
                           may be applicable to many city functions, but not to core (as opposed to local) economic activity. This implies the need for a major new economic anchor to be etablished in the
                           northwest corridor. The Network city strategy should consider this issue rather than putting it off for a review of the Metropolitan Centres Strategy.

4      1-01(a)       65    Supported.                                                                                                                                                                        n n Local gov't (inner/middle area)      o    Fremantle
4      1-01(a)       92    There is little logic in the size and placement of activity centres and in the pattern and continuity of networks.                                                                n y     Development Industry             o   Not applicable
4      1-01(a)       95    WAPC Action 1-1 (a) A review of the Statement of Planning Policy - Metropolitan Centres is critical, particularly given the emphasis Network city places on such centres.         n y    Local gov't (outer area)          o    Mandurah
                           Currently this policy does not include Mandurah, nor recognise the changes in shopping habits over recent years, nor make comment on the urban design of such centres.
                           Recommend that an update of the policy include Mandurah and other non-retail activity centres and provide design guidelines for retail activity centres. Further seeks a whole of
                           government commitment to incorporation of Transit Oriented Design principles within the area, including and immediately surrounding the Mandurah Transit Station.

4      1-01(a)       97 Concern re: potential downgrading of Cannington Retail and Commercial Area from a regional strategic centre resulting from expansion of Westfield Carousel                                y n Resident of inner/middle area   o    Cannington
4      1-01(a)       110 WAPC Action 1-1 (a) Agree the definition of centres needs to be broadened to encompass non-commercial centres such as educational institutions, hospitals, industrial areas              n y   Local gov't (outer area)      o    Joondalup
                         and entertainment hubs. These new centres need to be reinforced with support from all levels of government in terms of improving infrastructure, public and private transport
                         opportunities and associated supporting and/or complementary land uses.
4      1-01(a)       116 Other activity centres, especially industrial centres, need to consider the working population's need to access supporting commercial activities.                                        n y     Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan

4      1-01(a)       133 WAPC Action 1-1(a): (i) In terms of review of classification of all activity centres, recommend Armadale as a Strategic Regional Centre. There should be further reinforcement of        n y        State government         o     Armadale
                         Armadale's strategic role across all levels of government and industry as a major multi-purpose and employment centre with a range of services and facilities is critical in
                         attracting public and private investment. This is particularly important as the SE Planning Sector is projected to accommodate 23% of population growth in the region. (ii) Role
                         and urban design of Armadale as a Strategic Regional Centre has been progressed significantly by ARA through a range of mechanisms. (iii) Recommend that ARA have
                         recognition, support and partnership with DPI in expediting strategic and statutory planning for activity centres and corridors under its development control, and that an explicit
                         role be nominated for redevelopment authorities in achieving Network city objectives.
4      1-01(a)       146 Given that the draft Liveable Neighbourhoods 3 (LN3) refers to the maintenance of the main street model to centres at all levels, the wording should be reviewed to better reflect       n y     Local gov't (outer area)    o   Rockingham
                         the need for a Centres Policy that will mandate minimum levels of compliance, including the setting of a minimum percentage of mixed use, street front development. In addition,
                         the Network city document could more explicitly argue for activity centres to be integrated with the development of a high public space system.
4      1-01(a)       148 The crux to a centres policy is the restriction of major out-of-centre development. There are however a number of these developments being allowed by some councils, and                 n y      Development Industry       o   Not applicable
                         these will invariably generate their own demand for transport infrastruture, at the expense of continuing public investment in designated activity centres. Lack of or inconsistent
                         application of a strong centres policy will undermine confidence of shopping centre developers and investment risk will be increased resulting in decreased investment,
                         deteriorating shopping centre project quality, and decreased investment in community infrastructure Retailers also look to the planning system to provide reasonable confidence
                         in their investments. In this way, Network city objectives will not be achieved. For this reason, SCCA is concerned that Network city does not incorporate a strong and
                         enforceable centres policy and rather states that Perth's existing centres policy will be reviewed. Recommend that the review of SPP 42 Metropolitan Centres be commenced as
                         a priority so that a clear and enforceable centres policy can form the basis of Network city .

                         Support concept of activity centres. Recommend that these be defined in a way that recognises previous investment in many existing centres. This requires that public transport,
                         community facilities at these sites and road links be reinforced and enhanced where possible. They must also be well-defined to avoid problems which can arise when competing
                         businesses commence in areas not zoned for those activities (ie. emergence of retail activities in mixed use and industrial zoned land. It is noted that the strategy refers to the
                         need to protect industrial zoned land from encroachment by other uses, but does not explicitly recognise the need to protect retail areas from retail competition in land not zoned
                         for retail. Activity centres also need to ensure there is sufficient availability of land for commercial uses. The identification of major urban development opportunities may require
                         creation of a redevelopment authority to deliver desired outcomes and oversee shared infrastructure provision. Private sector development involvement in location and operation
                         of these redevelopment sites would strengthen outcomes.

4      1-01(a)       234 Network city pattern is broadly supported. Recommend that examples of a range of activity centres are provided and promoted to give the concept popular meaning.                          n y       NGO/c'ty/academic           o   Not applicable
4      1-01(a)       241 General support for the concept of mixed use development within designated centres, including higher density residential development and employment generators; however,                  n y    Local government general       o   Not applicable
                         little assurance is provided that the resultant dispersion of commercial development and employment will achieve significant improvement in the level of local or sub-regional self-
                         sufficiency or that it would be sufficiently serviceable by public transport. Of particular concern is that dispersion of commercial activity along activity corridors has potential to
                         detract from the viability of designated centres and from development of significant employment nodes in areas serviced by public transport.
4      1-01(a)       241 Identification of specific activity centres and corridors, apart from designated regional centres, generally pre-empts the more detailed planning and consultation needed, except         y y    Local government general       o   Not applicable
                         where they accord with existing local strategies. Note that there are numerous discrepancies in the identification and depiction of activity centres and the detailed planning
                         already undertaken at the local level. In previous metropolitan strategies, while the need for preparation of local strategies to fill in this detail has been flagged, the regional
                         strategy has limited itself to regionally significant elements of the urban structure.
4      1-01(a)       241 To achieve any significant level of employment self-sufficiency in the outer sector and redress the problem of one-way commuter traffic (private and public), there needs to be a         y y    Local government general       o   Not applicable
                         limited number of large activity centres at the outer extremity of each of the main corridors. The fact that existing designated regional centres have not developed to this extent is
                         an indication of difficulty of implementation rather than failure in provision of zoned land. This highlights the need for a better understanding of the locational decisions of
                         businesses, the significance of agglomeration economies and the influence of services and infrastructure. This understanding must precede, not follow, any radical change to the
                         existing centres strategy.

                         of the principal challenges for Network city should be to ensure that the Perth central city area remains the central focus of government action.

                           welcome support for a demonstration project to be undertaken in this respect.
4      4-03(c)       110   Agree that planning policies should have a focus on supporting high levels of employment and transport services and look forward to further dialogue to develop this concept.             n y        Local gov't (outer area)       o    Joondalup
                           Most of the City is already built to full capacity in terms of residential land, however the CBD has vacant land for commercial and high density residential and there is potential to
                           develop it into a vibrant regional centre to service the North West Corridor.

                           support the action.
4      4-05(c)       70    Improved links between existing activity centres has not been addressed and requires attention, particularly with regard to activity corridors/transport corridors.                       n y Resident of inner/middle area         i   Mt Hawthorn
4      5 Gen         126   Concept of local sustainability centres is supported. However these would need office facilities and other resources to be effective. Readily accessible facilities (eg. local halls or   n y   Local gov't (outer area)            o    Kwinana

                           with potential for light rail link to Mandurah and Pinjarra.
5       1-01         73    There is conflict between existing major freight routes and proposed Activity corridors, as a number of freight routes are shown as activity corridors. Affected routes include          y n        State government           o   Not applicable

                           eg. areas may provide little opportunity for increased density due to the objective to maintain residential character.
5       1-01         79    Strategy does not identify appropriate/desirable land uses along activity corridors and there appears to be no distinction between the range of land uses within activity corridors      n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o   Victoria Park
                           and centres. Recommend medium and high density residential development as most appropriate land use between activity centres.

                           (ii) Council has reservations as to the proposal to define Gilmore Ave as an activity corridor as this implies intensification and a tighter urban form, which could undermine the
                           boulevard character which provides a sense of place to the Kwinana Townsite. WAPC should also provide conceptual designs to demonstrate the implications of the activity
                           corridor proposal or provide funds to undertake such a study on the proviso that Council reserves the right to veto the proposal if the study does not demonstrate that the
                           landscape amenity can be preserved. (iii) Clarification of the designation of Gilmore Ave is required (iv) Recommend that the strategy reflect the proposed Fremantle to
                           Rockingham Transit way. A direct link of Gilmore Ave to the Hope Valley Wattleup Redevelopment is not supported.

                         homes, shops etc. Designation as a transport corridor will impact negatively on these land uses in terms of noise, traffic, access (ie. the highway will form a barrier to vehicles,
                         cyclists and pedestrians wishing to cross) thereby decreasing liveability. The same issues apply to the Ranford Road/South Street activity corridor which shows a transport

                           sections of South St, Warton Rd, Armadale Rd and Wanneroo Rd.
6       1-01         100   In the context of the Capital City Perth study, incorporate into strategy 6-8 that the Perth city centre and Perth airport have a direct commuter rail link constructed in the short        n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o       Perth

                           the different routes required by the freight traffic from the Kwinana Port and Kwinana Industrial Area; the Rowley Road linkage to Tonkin Highway should be identified as a
                           transport corridor; and all significant freight corridors as well as areas where high volumes freight control cannot be supported due to the nature of existing or future or planned

                           connectivity to adjoining communities.
6      1-01(a)       170   Support proposing and protecting of transport corridors as this facilitates rubbish collection; however, the ease of movement of waste vehicles within activity centres will be             n y     Local government general      o     Mindarie
                           constrained by decreased traffic speeds and increased priority given to pedestrians. Overall, a more compact city should improve efficiencies of waste collection. MRC will be

                           for development of designated activity centres, given that there is limited overall demand for services and that implicit dispersion of commercial activity is likely to detract from the
                           viability of regional and local activity centres; 3. problems of pedestrian access and movement and potential conflict between pedestrian crossings and vehicular through traffic
                           on the regional road network; 4. a significant amount of the metropolitan freight network is contained within the activity corridors and the use is incompatible. It would be
                           unfeasible and unrealistic to establish new freight networks that are outside activity corridors.
6      1-01(c)       146   This is consistent with the master planning work already undertaken by the RCCTS and Waterfront Village projects. There will be less of an attraction to investors to intensity             n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o   Rockingham

                           (i) the chapter does not refer to the Liveable Neighbourhoods strategy as a mechanism for improving transportation planning in new residential estates; (ii) does not mention the
                           opportunities available to improve public transport infrastructure serving large workplaces, nor does it include these in the definition of 'activity centres'. Universities for instance
                           generate a large number of vehicle trips. The Network city strategy should also support the introduction of facilities on buses to carry bicycles, bikes should be taken on trains
                           during peak hour and carriages for bikes need to be designed as in Europe and in the US.

                           ensure that Network city objectives 3 and 4 are achieved. Also recommend recognition of interrelatedness of transport and other community objectives, eg. health, promotion of
                           community and physical activity and ensure that these are objectives in the planning for transport.
6       6-01         201   Support for the promotion of policies that reduce car dependency. It would be appropriate for Network city to advocate a revision of planning policies that favour car usage (eg            n y          State government           o   Not applicable

6       6-02         241 Concern that the identification of more than 100 kms of the regional road network into activity corridors has the potential to compromise both the designated activity centres and            n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         the regional road network (as per comments in relation to strategy 1-1).

                         catalyst to consolidated TOD. This lack of reference is a serious omission given that the Minister is already talking about the need for such a mode and that it is the favoured
                         mode for the RCCTS.
6      6-05(b)       100 Recommend integrated transport strategies (ITS) be developed for all LGA's, by the LGA's, to meet Network city objectives and the individual needs of each locality. This needs       n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o       Perth
                         to be encouraged, supported and funded across all agencies to ensure that the ITS is effective and will be implemented.

                         service should be extended form Midland to Bellevue, with a single spur line then continued to the original Swan View station (which could be recommissioned as a historical
                         terminus). Limited parking capacity at Midland Station leads residents in the eastern foothills and Darling Range to drive right into Perth city. New stations at Bellevue and Swan
                         View with park and ride facilities would absorb much of this traffic and increase patronage on the eastern line. Swan View station would also offer tourism, recreational and
                         health benefits as it is located at the start of the walk and cycle trail which leads into John Forrest National Park. (ii) Action also does not include consideration of a cross-

                         process that gives weight to the social and environmental impacts of increased automobile use. Network city emphasises relatively weak non-regulatory measures, but to
                         improve the viability of public transport it is likely to be necessary to consider using more disincentives, eg. road pricing mechanisms such as congestion pricing; allocating
                         existing and new road space to public transport; limiting car parking supply, increasing parking charges and increasing taxes on petrol.

                         through stealth. It flies in the face of the current planning framework and, in its attempt to be flexible and accommodate the development industry, is setting the basis to remove
                         homeowner's rights and put rigid rules in place to make lifestyle choices inflexible. It takes away the voice of major stakeholders in development changes, ie. there is no input

A        B            C D: Network city - summary of issues raised during public comment, September 2004 to February 2005                                                                                          E F                 G                 H        I
7   Report in Gen    110 There are a number of issues and concerns with respect to the (i) level of detail provided, including the spatial plan that forms an integral part of Network city . (ii) The document    n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o    Joondalup
                         fails to adequately outline the stakeholder relationships or the mapping of how objectives and actions will be implemented at a local government level. Without sufficiently
                         detailed relationship mapping, the implications for local government cannot be adequately determined. (iii) There are also concerns with respect to the overall resourcing
                         required to implement Network city and what level of resources will be made available to assist in implementation. It is argued that the larger local governments with larger
                         resources will be in a better position to cope with the task. This raises equity and implementation concerns.
7   Report in Gen    116 While the ambitious nature of the Strategy is supported, the City considers it highly unrealistic and questions whether sufficient resources can be mobilised for implementation.         n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o       Swan
                         Conversely, if Network city is to be the overrarching community planning strategy, significantly more attention has to be paid to the social and community development
                         environment of existing and new communities.
7   Report in Gen    126 Recommend that where implementation of Network city by local authorities imposes additional resource requirements on local authorities, then the State government should                  n y      Local gov't (outer area)     o     Kwinana

                         perform.

                         environmental areas, eg. Gnangara Mound and wetland like Bibra Lake and North Lake. 3. The term 'community' is used frequently in the report, however there are few tangible
                         actions. 4. Mixed land use and mixed and affordable housing prices will go a long way to supporting this cause. 5. More is needed in terms of transport and cultural investment to
                         make all residents proud and safe in their neighbourhoods.

                         established plans to changes in political decision making; lack of consistency with delivery of planning goals by the three tiers of government; inadequate addressing of

                         modern standards; and failure to deliver higher density development in existing areas compared to cities elsewhere. Caution that Network city cannot solve all the problems
                         facing the community, nor should it seek to. Can however address some of these to ensure better outcomes as population grows.
7   Report in Gen    163 Network city recognises crime in a general sense and contains some elements found in CPTED; however, the CPTED content and policy context require clarification, definition               n y        State government           o   Not applicable

                         development proposals and in the regeneration and renewal of existing developments. Need to embed the underlying principles of CPTED into Network city to provide support
                         and consistency with the development of a State-wide Designing Out Crime Policy.
7   Report in Gen    163 In order to ensure policy continuity, recommend that Network city make specific reference to recent and planned policy statement including: 1. The Government's commitment to             n y        State government           o   Not applicable
                         designing out crime (parts 2 and 5 of the State Community Safety and Crime Prevention Strategy). 2. The revision to Liveable Neighbourhoods 3 and the discussion paper which
                         highlights community safety (and crime risk assessment) as an emerging urban issue. 3. The forthcoming Designing Out Crime Planning Policy Guidance Manual (due June
                         2005); (v) all relevant Statements of Planning Policy.

                         not considered to represent a manageable form for implementation, in light of the current resource shortages faced by State and local governments. This needs to be addressed
                         prior to implementation
7   Report in Gen    168 Concern regarding a lack of detail in some of the strategies and actions and the lack of linkages to social issues. While Network city acknowledges that there are limitations to         n y        NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
                         addressing social inequities, there should have been a greater attempt to link planning and development issues through social and cultural planning.

7   Report in Gen    241 Common criticism raised by local government is lack of detail and errors and inaccuracies in the detail provided, eg. (local) activity centres. Related to this is lack of information   n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         and consultation regarding proposals of particular relevance to local communities, the implementation of which will ultimately depend on local government. Where detail is
                         provided, much of it goes beyond the regional level, some pre-empts local responses and local solutions which will be critical to implementation and others appear to be included
                         in response to 'good ideas'. Rather than elucidating the Strategy, the multiplicity of proposals and their varying scales of application detract from the strategic focus of Network

7      1-02(c)       70 DPI Action 1-2 (c) It is vital that local authorities participate in the formulation and setting of targets to ensure relevance at the operational level, as well as being representative of   n y Resident of inner/middle area     i   Mt Hawthorn
                         the local communities. This may mean that flexibility will need to be included in the way that these are achieved to take account of specific localised circumstances, recognising
                         that change is not necessarily going to be readily accepted by the community.
7      1-02(c)       85 As this is a long term project that will affect residents and the environment, it is important that consultation is carried out by independent people.                                         n   y Resident of inner/middle area   i    Greenwood

7      2 Gen         63 Recommend confirming Network city as future planning and begin the process of awareness to achieve public acceptance of the concept.                                                           n y        Dialogue participants      i    South Perth
7      2 Gen         160 Regarding planning principles: Query the commitment of planning to community involvement as set out in planning principles, ie. planning references need to make reference to                 n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         i   Not applicable
                         community as well as strategic, statutory and infrastructure planning. Support the move away in the document from a focus on legislative/statutory practice, as communities have
                         a far wider expectation of what planning is and what it can achieve. Good planning, based on effective consultation and community involvement, can provide a flourishing many
                         dimensional city as opposed to standardised placed developed by planners/developers alone.
7      2 Gen         37 Strategies and key actions in Chapter 2 focus on the establishment of broad level partnerships. Recommend that identification of key operational focus points within and between               n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o     Armadale
                         these groups, (ie. empowerment, resources, skills) and of priority policy, strategies and of diverse implementation programs, will be crucial for the establishment and
                         maintenance of the integrated and multi-faceted planning and implementation framework established by Network city .
7      2 Gen         100 The 'partnering', 'reform' and 'engagement' statements require a practical implementation methodology to be put in place simultaneously by a specialist implementation agency                 n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o       Perth
                         with significant funding linked thereto.
7      2 Gen         116 Further work is required in relation to implementation, in particular further detail is required on actions and identification of roles and resources. Propose that it may be more            n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                         effective to fund specific measures rather than develop further strategies, eg. fund more public transport services rather than prepare a public transport strategy.
7      2 Gen         133 Emphasis on implementation is supported; however those actions that rely on the creation of employment, shops and other activities are only influenced, not determined, by                    n y         State government          o     Armadale
                         planning actions. Recommend that the key capacity of planning and redevelopment authorities in facilitating development be acknowledged.
7      2 Gen         142 Implementation needs to be undertaken with care as divergent stakeholders may interpret Network city from different perspectives and derive different conclusions. Requires an                n y       Development Industry        o   Not applicable

7      2 Gen         163 These ideas are clearly linked with CPTED.                                                                                                                                                    n n         State government          o   Not applicable

7       2-01         165 Strategy fails to distil further levels of decision making responsibilities to local government and for such responsibilities to be more autonomous. Particularly where local      n y    Local gov't (outer area)     o     S-J'dale

7       2-01         240 Support whole of government approach, including local government. Commitment to infrastructure spending and coordinated infrastructure programming will be crucial.                n y     Development Industry        o   Not applicable

7       2-01         240 Given that the Strategy is highly dependent on local government support, both in principle and practice, partnership solutions will need to be instituted between State and local  n y     Development Industry        o   Not applicable
                         government, particularly to deal with localised community objections to proposals and to equitable fund infrastructure. The government should ensure that the partnership
                         approach is not used by local or State government simply to impose higher development standards on development or to gain a greater share of infrastructure funds at the
                         expense of regional infrastructure priorities.
7       2-01         241 Generally supported, although it is noted that there is not yet any agreed process to ensure the active participation of other government agencies. This commitment by all         n y Local government general        o   Not applicable

7       2-02         237   Not supported. Alignment of this strategy with strategy 2.5 requires the two strategies to be combined. As the 'means' is to be provided by local government, this places the            y y Resident of inner/middle area     i     Mullaloo

7       2-02         44    Network city is 'philosophically based' and therefore likely to be difficult to apply to local government. Recommend requirement to define equitable statutory roles, (ie. state-local   n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o     Cockburn

                           etc as they play a significant role in implementing Network city outcomes. The strategy in general needs to link to the setting of targets or measures of success relating to

7       2-05         241   Recommendations: 1. That while there is general agreement about the respective roles of State and local government in relation to the implementation of the strategy, it is              n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                           important that local government is engaged in the setting of targets as well as determining how targets are to be pursued, taking into consideration any relevant community

7      2-05(a)       44 Local government is an important component for achieving Network city goals but not central to the planning process, therefore greater balance will be required between roles           n y        Local gov't (outer area)     o     Cockburn
                         and responsibilities of each level of government.

7      2-05(a)       60 Recommends partnerships should occur with each local government and not only through WALGA. Also local government wants to be involved in determining the 'ends' as well                n y        Local gov't (outer area)     o    Wanneroo
                         as being involved with the 'means'.
7      2-05(a)       79 It is critical that there is an initial agreement based on negotiation of the 'ends' and adequate information and support provided by the State for local government to effectively     n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o   Victoria Park
                         participate in both the development of the 'ends' and the ability to deliver.

                         engagement and education; endorsement of the principles of accountability and reporting to ensure that local government and the community is informed regarding progress.
                         Requests that the State government give priority consideration to the significant resource (financial and human) implications at a local government and state government agency
                         level to ensure capacity for implementation of strategies and actions.
7      2-05(a)       103 The roles of State and local government as spelt out in the proposed partnership recognises the current roles, but it does highlight that there is a potential for conflict between    n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o     Belmont
                         State and local objectives. The Council has a strong interest in being involved in a State partnership to progress the upcoming review of the Town Planning Scheme based on
                         Network city principles and seeks to work closely with the State government on this review.
7      2-05(a)       110 Comments: (i) This action is arguably the most important as it is referred to in many other actions. The Council looks forward to progressing this issue, as it is a welcome change    n y        Local gov't (outer area)     o    Joondalup
                         to the current working relationship. (ii) Agree that WAPC should coordinate the process of setting agreed targets and other elements of the partnership, however local
                         government must be permitted to have input into the local direction and be appropriately funded/resourced to successfully implement the agreement. (iii) The State Government
                         should look at how it can integrate the objectives of bodies such as WALGA and WAPC to encourage local governments to enhance their communication, particularly between
                         planners and economic development officers.

7      2-05(a)       126 Recommend this recognises the right for local authorities to make judgements as to 'means' and 'ends' of Planning Policy, particularly where no conflict with Regional Planning        n y    Local gov't (outer area)         o     Kwinana
                         Policy exists. The role of local government in the formulation of Regional Planning Policies and Strategies should be increased beyond the current level of input.

                         development control and the power to facilitate development.
7      2-05(a)       145 Concern regarding how implementation will be delivered at a State and local government level, in relation to what action priorities are to be targeted, including what resources       n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)     o      Vincent
                         will be available to local government.
7      2-05(a)       158 It is likely that some capacity building of local governments will be necessary to enable them to effectively implement relevant strategies and actions. The Dialogue with the City:   n y          NGO/c'ty/academic          o   Not applicable
                         Communities program is a good start, but feedback from local government suggests that it is a complicated process to apply for funding.
7      2-05(a)       172 Support principle; however, remains to be seen if this ideal involves equal partners working together or results in a system where local government are required to implement          n y      Local government general       o

                         large sections of the community. However, community engagement should be carefully reviewed to ensure that the engagement mechanisms do not favour local interests over
                         regional Network city objectives. Likewise they should not lead to protraction and uncertainty in the development process.
7       2-06         241 Limited objections to this proposal; however, local government considers it is well placed to represent the community and to engage the community through consultation about             n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         matters of local relevance. Recommend that some care is needed to ensure the decision making responsibility of local government is not by-passed, or that strategies requiring

7       3-01         163 All these strategies and the issues they seek to address are relevant to designing out crime and CPTED. While 3-15 (a) refers to CPTED guidelines, CPTED is neither designed          n y        State government           o   Not applicable
                         nor explained. Recommend re-wording by adding the phrase: "using the principles of designing out crime and CPTED". Also recommend replacing the word 'encourage' with a
                         stronger reference, bearing in mind the Government's commitment to designing out crime and the ongoing policy alignment based on this commitment. Reference to crime and
                         the fear of crime in the planning process itself could be strengthened by making it 'a material consideration' (as in the UK).

                         be part of the planning approval process.
8      1 Gen         70 Effects of increased density should be considered in relation to environmental, economic and social sustainability. Major issues to be addressed/managed: private vehicle                    n y Resident of inner/middle area   i   Mt Hawthorn

8      1 Gen         116 Support the principle of protecting and encouraging urban agriculture as it has the capacity for economic and employment development, recreational and environmental sink                   n y     Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                         functions but is under constant and increasing pressure for subdivision. Strategies and actions are required to protect these areas and it is suggested that the WAPC urgently
                         reviews Statement of Planning Policy 2.5 and the Metropolitan Rural Policy to provide clear direction for suitable lot sizes, zones and land uses.
8      1 Gen         152 Recommend that wetlands are included under Planning Principles point 3 (see also Chapter 3 Planning principles). Note that discussion of 'habitat' may be considered restrictive            n y        State government         o   Not applicable

8      1 Gen         232 In order to meet the objectives of Strategy 5-4 ie 'Protect and enhance the natural environment' , two additional planning principles should be included, ie. declaring water and           n y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         other catchment areas and land use management.
8       1-01         60 Regional open space 'breaks' at Tamala Park and Eglington should be shown as 'non-development areas.'                                                                                        n y     Local gov't (outer area)    o    Wanneroo

                         areas. Outcomes from the East Wanneroo Land Use and Water Management Strategy (EWLUWMS) process should be included in the final Network city strategy.
8      1-01(a)       160 WAPC Action 1-1 (a) Best practice is an outdated theoretical concept. Sustainability is dependent on Good Practice, local responses to local conditions.                                    y y       NGO/c'ty/academic         i   Not applicable

                         climate. This in turn may require more dwellings to be air conditioned and therefore add to electricity costs. The increased dwelling footprints caused by increased density with
                         the resultant loss of stormwater re-charging opportunities due to increased built/paved areas is also an issue that requires addressing.
8       1-02         152 Land use to accommodate urban infill often results in land use being replaced by more sensitive uses, eg. petrol stations being replaced by residences; therefore the issue of              n y        State government         o   Not applicable
                         contaminated sites requires consideration. Urban infill will also lead to development of sites previously considered too problematic, eg. areas with a high water table, which
                         increases the potential for the disturbance of acid sulphate soils which can have regional environmental, social and economic impacts. This issue requires management at many
                         stages of the planning process and therefore requires identification and consideration within Network city . Recommend reference to WAPC Planning Bulletin No 64 (Nov 2003)
                         Acid Sulphate Soils in Chapter 5.
8       1-02         168 Area 3 land should include extensive consultation with local Indigenous groups who wish to preserve significant Aboriginal heritage sites as well as conserve as much of the                n y       NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

8       1-03         74 Recommend a continuous 5km minimum bush/farmland greenbelt around the MRS/Peel region boundary from coast to coast to provide the metropolitan region with a sense of                        n y Resident of inner/middle area   i    Applecross

                           priority they merit in sustainable urban management. Recommend that land can be zoned for horticulture and that the opportunities to improve agricultural productivity need to
                           be made available and promoted for horticulture in the Perth-Peel region. There is a need for these areas to be protected from development and provision made to increase
                           such areas and support technological improvements/investment in response to increased urban populations.

8      5 Gen         152 Given the variety of strategies which will directly affect air quality (including 1-1; 1-2; 1-3; 3-6; 3-16; 3-17; 5-10; 6-1; 6-2 and 6-6), a priority strategy within Chapter 5:               n y         State government          o   Not applicable
                         Environment & Heritage should be to "Maintain and improve local and regional air quality". Key actions to support this strategy could include, but not be limited to the programs
                         and actions outlined in Initiative 8 of Implementing the Perth Air Quality Management Plan - Detailed Supporting Document (DoE 2002). It is acknowledged that the AQMP has
                         been identified as a key action to support strategy 5-10 (p. 66); however, it is recommended this action be identified as a specific strategy for air quality.
8      5 Gen         152 Introductory passages refer to the need to sustainably manage land and water resources via planning strategies and broadly summarises why and how this could occur. In                         n y         State government          o   Not applicable
                         comparison, the need to manage air quality is also acknowledged, but the why and how are not there. Recommend that this additional information be incorporated into the
                         document. This introductory context is important given the recommendationto include a priority strategy specific to air quality.
8      5 Gen         155 Given that a variety of broad strategies will directly affect air quality (ie. Strategies 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 3-6, 3-16, 3-17, 5-10, 6-1, 6-2, 6-6), recommend that a key priority within Chapter   n y         State government          o   Not applicable
                         5 be to "Maintain and improve local and regional air quality" and that the Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) be included as a specific strategy for dealing with air quality.
                         Recommend that key actions to support this strategy include, but are not limited to the programs and actions outlined in Initiative 8 of Implementing the Perth AQMP - Detailed
                         Supporting Document (DoE 2002). Further, the document stated that DoE is responsible for implementing the AQMP, but this is not the case as it is a whole of government,
                         industry and community document. Recommend, therefore, that the responsibilities of DPI, DoE and MRWA be reflected in the document.
8      5 Gen         163 Comments: (i) Regarding reference to the fundamental concepts of sustainability: wishes to highlight the broadening of the understanding of sustainability to include crime and                n y         State government          o   Not applicable

                         low lying vegetation. The ongoing and routine maintenance of such areas will ensure lines of sight do not potentially impact on personal safety. Care should be taken to avoid

                         consultation is a key action. It is also essential that the strategies developed are implemented, as past experience has been that Indigenous matters are written into strategies
                         but often remain unimplemented. SWALSC can assist by facilitating consultation and raising awareness of particular issues and seeks to enter into a formal relationship with DPI
                         to assist in the policy design and development of management plans through Network city implementation. This would include representation on the proposed Network city
                         Implementation committee.

8      5 Gen         241 Query linkage of environment and heritage, although accept that there is a 'national estate' element associated with certain parts of the natural environment. In other respects,        y y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         the two issues involve substantially different considerations. Note that the issue of heritage is addressed in chapter 3, strategy 3-4.
8      5 Gen         241 Natural resources are largely ignored in the Strategy, apart from a brief mention in chapter 1, planning principles. As water resources are included in chapter five, the inclusion of   n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         other natural resources such as agricultural land and basic raw materials would seem a natural extension. Recommends that (for chapter 5) the environment could be more
                         appropriately associated with the new category of natural resources and include components such as agricultural land and basic raw materials, as well as water resources
                         already included in strategy 5-7. This appproach would be consistent with WAPC Action 5-1(a).
8       5-01         70 Effects of increased density should be considered in relation to environmental, economic and social sustainability. Major issues to be addressed/managed: private vehicle                 n y Resident of inner/middle area     i   Mt Hawthorn

8       5-01         87 No mention of heritage is made in this section. The list of actions for 5-1 should include a cross reference to WAPC Action 3-4 (a).                                                      n   y      State government           o   Not applicable
8       5-01         89 Supported, however conflict between higher densities and maintaining local heritage and environmental values needs to be addressed.                                                       n   y    Development Industry         o   Not applicable

                         resources in core urban areas to preserve urban sustainability; if this is intended it should be clearly stated.
8       5-01         229 These actions should take account of the need to preserve access to deposits of strategic resources and basic raw materials for the broader state interest.                              n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
8       5-01         236 Recommend that the environmental component of sustainability be given greater strength. More sensitive assessment of environmental issues needs to be incorporated into                  n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

                         the activities in which local government is already engaged.
8      5-01(a)       46 Strengthen and integrate the roles of the WAPC's environment committees.                                                                                                                  n y Resident of inner/middle area     i     Jolimont
8      5-01(a)       176 Significant work has already been undertaken by the WAPC to develop a process whereby sustainability principles are integrated with decision making through the planning                 n y    Development Industry           o   Not applicable
                         process. Recommend that any actions identified through Network city are integrated with this existing process.
8      5-01(a)       241 Note that this action refers to strengthening of the WAPC's Environment and Natural Resource Management Committee, which adds weight to the idea of an association                       n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         between the environment and natural resources.
8      5-01(b)       44 Develop a set of criteria through the WAPC for strategic and statutory planning to ensure that sustainability principles are incorporated into all planning instruments.                  n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o     Cockburn
                         Consideration be given to using such tools as sustainability scorecards or a Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) form New South Wales, following a comprehensive evaluation
                         of the benefits and costs arising from implementation.
8      5-01(b)       79 It is critical that the Sustainability Principles can be translated into a workable list of criteria, checklist or scorecard to objectively evaluate projects.                            n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o   Victoria Park
8      5-01(b)       102 Recommend: that there is a need to ensure that any proposed sustainability 'scorecards' integrate more than just water and energy considerations; and that the adoption of a             n y Local gov't (inner/middle area)   o     Subiaco
                         minimum rating score for government buildings using an appropriate rating system for energy and/or sustainability be encouraged.

                         Schemes do not assess individual residences. Also difficulties and time frames of developing and applying such a system should be realistically acknowledged and an action
                         listed stating that in the interim existing environmental protection processes will be utilised and improved. Needs also to be focus on sustainability assessment of structure plans
                         especially for new urban areas and significant infill development proposals.
8      5-01(b)       172 Recommend that the proposed sustainability scorecard integrates more than just water and energy considerations and that adoption of a minimum rating score for government                n y     Local government general      o

                         how often it can be updated. Overall, seems unrealistic and requires extensive resources. See also comments relating to action 5-2 (d)
8      5-01(c)       142 Strongly support developing clarity in sustainability objectives, targets, criteria, indicators and provisions to ensure appropriate contextual response. Urge Network city to clearly   n y       Development Industry        o   Not applicable
                         articulate its urban sustainability principles, particularly in relation to natural environment, resource management and circumstances where the loss of natural resources is
                         necessary to preserve urban sustainability. Concern that the environmental sustainability agendas already has a dominant role in the planning system, resulting in the loss of
                         development potential in existing urban areas.

                         unclear whether the intent of these strategies is to give guidance on environmental response and modification in certain urban situations or that planning must avoid
                         compromising environmentally sensitive areas by locating important urban elements well away from them.
8      5-01(c)       230 This action should include CALM as a key agency. Supports refocus of decision making procedures to raise the consideration of environmental and heritage issues in equal                 n y         State government          o   Not applicable

8      5-01(f)       146 As a rapidly growing local government, the City has a particular interest in this issue and is already involved in helping private land owners protect and manage bushland. It is        n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o   Rockingham
                         likely that the environmental objectives will include coastal protection, bushland, wetlands, air quality and waste all of which are of particular importance to the City. Therefore
                         welcome the opportunity to be represented on working groups to consider these matters.
8      5-01(g)       178 Recommend maintaining the role of the EPA as an independent advisor on environmental impacts of major development proposals and planning strategies. The action as it                    n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

8       5-02         116 Object to reference to local government needing to strengthen their performance, as this tier of government is most accountable to the local community for the environment. No          y y       Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                         reference is made to improving the performance of State government, or of land developers, or the community. Majority of actions make no reference to existing plethora of
                         environmental strategies that all suggest implementation through local government and have associated objectives, targets and indicators.
8       5-02         116 Recommend an action of undertaking an audit of existing documents and develop a standardised list of activities for local government, identify priorities for action and any gaps       n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o       Swan
                         and allocate resources for implementation. Concept of real-time monitoring is unrealistic and resource intensive. The establishment of local sustainability centres would be better
                         delivered through a small number of well resourced existing learning facilities, eg. schools and libraries, as opposed to introducing a new range of centres.
8       5-02         126 Recommend that government departments be required to support local government/regional council programs dealing with the community, eg. Green House and ICLEI Water                     n y       Local gov't (outer area)    o     Kwinana

                         priority in non-urban areas. It is important that the importance of maintaining the sustainability of urban systems (as distinct from environmental systems in urban areas) is
                         acknowledged.
8       5-02         241 No major objection to the strategy. Note, however, that it is not clear why similar strategies have not been included in relation to economic and social issues. Local government       n y     Local government general      o   Not applicable
                         already has a range of powers relevant to the management of the environment and recognition of heritage and a number of local government submissions have pointed out that
                         there are already programs in place similar to those identified in the actions. Acknowledgement of these initiatives would be appropriate.
8      5-02(a)       234 Recommend that community environment groups and the Department of the Environment/EPA should also be involved in determining environmental targets and guidelines.                      n y         NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable

8       5-03         234 Recommend that biodiversity conservation receives greater attention in the Strategy overall. The Strategy relies on existing measures such as Bush Forever, which whilst           n y            NGO/c'ty/academic         o   Not applicable
                         important is not sufficient to maintain biodiversity and ecological processes. A more comprehensive treatment of this issue is needed to inform planning strategies and decisions.

                         statements include a number of detailed proposals which would appear to be out of scale for a regional planning strategy (eg. control of weeds; the Local Government
                         Biodiversity Planning Guidelines for the Perth Metropolitan Region; establish a process for local governments to prepare local biodiversity strategies). A framework needs to be
                         developed that provides for the equitable distribution of costs associated with retention, protection and management of regionally significant biodiversity in local reserves.

8      5-03(a)       61    Encourage use of the WALGA's Local Biodiversity Planning Guidelines by local governments.                                                                                           n   y Resident of inner/middle area   i    Bassendean
