|Queens Park Local Structure Plan|
The Queens Park Train Station lies at the centre of the project area. It is a small station on Perth’s train network, catering for the local community and providing public transport access to adjacent schools. Unlike several stations on the network, Queens Park is not a ‘park and ride’ station, which provides greater opportunity to promote Transit Oriented Development and increase development densities close to the station. Apart from the station, development around it, there remains vacant or underdeveloped land.
In Directions 2031 and Beyond (Directions 2031), the Western Australian Planning Commission identifies several objectives and themes in Perth which can be delivered by the local government through many urban regeneration projects. These include achieving density and infill development targets, promotion of affordability, planning housing supply to meet community needs and providing identity and character. An additional yield of 570 dwellings is identified for the area in Directions 2031 supporting documentation.
The Queens Park Local Structure Plan has been prepared to guide the residential and non-residential development of the precinct towards the objectives of City of Canning’s Strategic Community Plan and Directions 2031. The inclusion of commercial uses and higher density near Queens Park Train Station will provide for the activation of the area and the increased density of the area will create genuine housing choice reflecting changes in society.
