Metropolitan Region Scheme Amendment 1415 (Standard) - Children’s Hospice Site

Closed 13 Mar 2024

Opened 30 Jan 2024


The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) for land in the City of Nedlands.

The purpose of the amendment is to rezone approximately 5,945 m2 in Swanbourne from the Parks and Recreation reservation to the Public Purposes - Special Uses reservation in the MRS.

The amendment seeks to align the MRS with the WAPC’s development approval for a children’s hospice which includes patient rooms, family suites, family and play areas and allied health services.

The proposed amendment is to be progressed as a standard amendment as the size and scale of the proposed amendment is not considered regionally significant. It does not reflect a regional change to the planning strategy or philosophy for the metropolitan region.
