Planning a better Mosman Park!

Local Planning Scheme No. 3 is close to gazettal, allowing for new development opportunities.

New policies
We are developing new local planning policies to ensure superior design outcomes for the new development that LPS3 will allow. We want to hear from you so that we can refine these policies: 

•    LPP14 – Building Height
•    LPP15 – Development Standards for Multiple Dwellings, Mixed-Use Developments and Non-Residential Developments

LPP14 is a summary of building height rules that apply to all types of development in the Town. Its purpose is to ensure that development is at a scale that is compatible with its neighbourhood.

LPP15 provides development standards for development other than single houses and grouped dwellings (units). The policy emphasises high quality design, liveability outcomes for future residents and integration with the streetscape. 

You can also read the report to Council which discusses the background for the policies here.

How do I comment?
•    Comment period: 2 September to 23 September 2017. 
•    Submissions are preferred by email to admin@mosmanpark.wa.gov.au and you must include “Submission for draft policy LPP14 and/or LPP15” in the subject line.
•    Postal submissions addressed to PO Box 3, Mosman Park, WA 6912.

Preventing Motor Vehicle Crime

The Town of Mosman Park in collaboration with WA Police has developed a new brochure to inform residents about what they can do to help prevent motor vehicle crime.

There is an ongoing problem in the Town with opportunistic theft from motor vehicles while parked on streets, at service stations and even in car parks.

It is imperative that residents heed these warnings and stop making it easy for thieves by not leaving valuables in their cars, as this attracts theft.

The brochure is available in hard copy from the Town's Administration Centre, and can be downloaded here
