Appeal rejected on South Perth tower

A South Perth resident group claims a Court of Appeals decision to uphold the quashing of a development approval on Mill Point Road confirms the original intent of the suburb’s town planning scheme, but the developer behind the proposal says the judgement only highlights problems with development guidelines in the area.

South Perth
South Perth City Council is obsessed with having a train station next to Richardson Park - there is no room for car parking, so it must be a 'destination' station, hence the need for commercial development to attract commuters. South Perth's bylaws classify short-term or serviced apartments as commercial use; the developers, by adding in floors of serviced apartments, are providing the 'commercial' content required by the Council. The purpose is defeated, because the serviced apartments will employ only a few cleaners and other staff insufficient to warrant a train station.

Victoria Park
If the community had not petitioned against this building they would have had less height and more permanent residents. It is a shame that in this instance neither party has got what they were seeking.
