Henry Street Industrial Precinct Structure Plan

The Henry Street Industrial Precinct Structure Plan has been given final approval by the WA Planning Commission (WAPC). 

The Structure Plan provides a framework and guidance on the future subdivision and development of this industrial area. The focus is on land uses to complement the nearby WAMMCO operation and provide a suitable level of industry adjacent to the residential area.

Preparation of the Structure Plan meets statutory obligations and fulfils recommendations and objectives set out in the Shire of Katanning Local Planning Strategy and the SuperTowns Growth and Implementation Plan.

Background

The first draft of the Structure Plan was prepared in 2015, based on the Literature Review, Stakeholder Consultation, Opportunities and Constraints Plan and the findings of the supporting Technical Documents (2014).  It was updated in 2016 to accord with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 and the associated Structure Plan Framework.

The Henry Street Precinct Structure Plan – 969-04 Version F was endorsed for advertising by the Council at its meeting held 24 May 2016.

A public information workshop was held on 21 June 2016 and following advertising, the  submissions were considered by the Council at its meeting held 25 Oct 2016.  The Council resolved to adopt the Henry Street precinct Structure Plan, subject to five modifications (Resolution OC123/16 item 10.1.2 refers).

Updates to the Local Water Management Strategy were completed in August 2017 and subsequently endorsed by the Department of Water, then forwarded to the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage (DPLH).

On 22 March DPLH advised the WAPC required twelve modifications to the Henry Street Structure Plan.  The changes were generally as requested/recommended by the Council and in response to agency comments. The modifications were completed and the documents were submitted to DPLH in July 2018.  WAPC conformance advice was received on 2 August and the Structure Plan received final Approval from WAPC on 6 August 2018.  The Council received and noted the final Henry Street Precinct Structure Plan – version G SPN/2030 at its meeting held 28 August 2018 (Refer Item 10.1.2).
