The Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan (KACP) outlines the 10-year vision for the development of the town centre and provides a planning framework to coordinate the future subdivision, zoning and development in the area.
The vision for the Kalamunda Activity Centre is:
Kalamunda is a place borne of community spirit with a strong connection to its heritage. The town centre serves as a gateway to the hills and as a hub connecting both locals and visitors alike. Its natural bushland, setting and traditional village atmosphere are a platform to enhance Kalamunda's unique offerings, activities and events and provides spaces for community interactions and neighbourhood conversations.
The KACP applies to the following area (bound by Elizabeth Street, Kalamunda Road, Canning Road, Railway Road and Dixon Road).
Following the conclusion of Phase 2: Public Advertising, the plan was finalised and presented to Council at the 24 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting. At this meeting, Council endorsed the Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan, subject to a number of modifications to address submissions received during advertising.
The KACP was referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission in April 2020 for final endorsement.
The City is also required to progress an amendment to the Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS 3) to ensure the KACP and LPS 3 Provisions are aligned, and to give full statutory effect. The LPS 3 amendment was adopted for advertising in November 2020 and will take approximately 8-12 months to complete.
At the Special Meeting of Council on 30 June 2020, Council Resolved to commit $2.4 million from the 2020/2021 budget to undertake Central Mall streetscape improvements as outlined in the Kalamunda Activity Centre - Landscape Master Plan. Construction
commenced in late 2021 and is due to be completed in June/July 2022 - Find out more here
Community consultation for the Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan occurred over two phases:
The purpose of the visioning exercise was to discuss and test ideas, aspirations and objectives on the future of the Kalamunda town centre. The engagement exercises mentioned above were specifically structured to ensure a range of stakeholders and user groups’ inputs were received. The outcomes of this process are summarised in the following reports:
The KACP was advertised from June - August 2019. A summary of the survey results and engagement findings is included in:
The KACP comprises a number of elements aimed at facilitating its 10-year vision:
The success of the improvements envisaged in the KACP will depend on significant investment in public infrastructure such as streetscape enhancements, as part of the future capital works programs envisaged in the Landscape Master Plan. This will require further consideration by the Council as part of annual budgeting and setting of the City's Long-Term Financial Plan.
Amendment 106 seeks to introduce a new Centre zone and objectives, rezone the area affected by the draft KACP to the Centre zone, delete the existing Special Control Area provisions relating to the Kalamunda Town Centre Design Control area, and rationalise the existing Additional Uses, Special Uses and Restricted Uses contained within the amendment area.
Amendment 106 was initiated by the Council in November 2020. Consent to advertise was granted in August 2021 and advertising occurred between November and January 2022. The City is in the process of finalising the Amendment document in response to submissions received and anticipate a report to be presented to the Council by mid-2022.
