Bellevue Terrace apartment stalled

PLANS to develop a $4 million six-storey, nine apartment building at 4 Bellevue Terrace, West Perth have been stalled by council.

Councillors voted to hold over the development until the developer could address setback issues and other concerns from residents at 6 Bellevue Terrace.

A staff note to council said the development had been designed to comply with the objectives of the Mount Street Design policy and the Mount Street Built Form Guidelines.

The note said it also generally complied with the objectives of the Residential Planning Codes but development standards relating to open space, car parking, height and setbacks needed to be addressed.

Councillor Tess Stroud said the development’s side setbacks and its setback from the escarpment were insufficient.

“Other buildings on Bellevue Terrace obeyed the rules so this one must do so,” Mrs Stroud said.

She said Bellevue Terrace was a sensitive area, being “not in Kings Park, it is of the park”.

Councillor Janet Davidson said a correspondent to council had described the development as “overbearing in the extreme”.

If the application is approved, the current building occupying 6 Bellevue Terrace will need to be demolished.

A staff note to council said the existing building was listed on council’s draft Municipal Inventory of Heritage Places but did not meet the Heritage Council of WA’s criteria for inclusion on the State Register of Heritage Places.
