Charles Street (between Carr Street and Green Street)
City of Vincent

General description

The Minister for Planning has granted approval to the declaration of a planning control area over land at Charles Street between Carr Street and Green Street in the City of Vincent as shown on Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) plan numbers 1.7444 and 1.7445.


Charles Street is the subject of Planning Control Area No. 100, it is due to expire on 10 February 2017. The declaration of Planning Control Area No. 125 will renew the existing control measures over this area for a further five year period. The extension of the existing PCA is required to allow the completion of the final design of Charles Street. The Commission considers that the Planning Control Area is required to ensure that no development occurs on this land which might prejudice this purpose until it may be reserved for Primary Regional Roads in the Metropolitan Region Scheme.

Duration and effects

The declaration remains in effect for a period of five years from the date of publication of this notice in the Government Gazette or until revoked by the WAPC with approval by the Minister, whichever is the sooner.

A person shall not commence and carry out development in a planning control area without the prior approval of the WAPC. The penalty for failure to comply with this requirement is $200,000 and, in the case of a continuing offence, a further fine of $25,000 for each day during which the offence continues.

Compensation is payable in respect of land injuriously affected by this declaration, and land so affected may be acquired by the WAPC in the same circumstances and in the same manner as if the land had been reserved in the Metropolitan Region Scheme for a public purpose.
