The Urbis Perth planning and design team is proud of its involvement in the Shenton Park Hospital Redevelopment Improvement Scheme, which has received Western Australian Government approval from Planning Minister Donna Faragher.
The decision means that Shenton Park is the first metropolitan Improvement Scheme to be gazetted in the State.
The Scheme will facilitate the redevelopment of a 16ha strategic infill site 5km from the CBD, transforming it from a former hospital to a new urban village – accommodating residential growth and a greater diversity of housing choice within the western suburbs.
Working together with our client LandCorp, we prepared the Improvement Scheme which sets clear expectations for density and land use, while providing flexibility for market factors to respond over time. As one of the very first Schemes to be prepared, Urbis and LandCorp have also been responsible for developing a framework and approach that future Improvement Schemes can now follow.
