WAPC submits draft Ascot Kilns Local Development Plan
Plan will guide development of the former Bristile Kilns site in Ascot's Golden Gateway precinct
WA's industrial heritage will be reflected in future vision
Development of the former Bristile Kilns site in Ascot is a step closer with the draft Ascot Kilns Local Development Plan and Design Guidelines, endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for submission to the City of Belmont.
Planning Minister Donna Faragher said the plan provided guidance on the interpretation and management of the site's distinctive heritage elements, as well as looking at how the kilns could be integrated with future developments.
"The State Government is committed to protecting the unique attributes of the Ascot Kilns site," Mrs Faragher said.
"This plan will celebrate the importance of the site's history and character by ensuring the integration of the heritage-listed kilns and chimney stacks into future development."
The plan will also:
- optimise physical and visual access to the kilns and chimney stacks, and encourage excellent design
- provide areas of high-quality public open space
- provide for a range of building heights and designs that respond to surrounding land uses, including development within Ascot Waters
- facilitate connectivity both within and through the site.
"The WAPC has worked closely with the local community and key stakeholders to develop the local development plan, and all input so far has been considered," the Minister said.
The plan will now be submitted to the City of Belmont for assessment and advertising for public comment, in accordance with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015.
"I encourage everyone with an interest in the Ascot Kilns site to take the opportunity to have their say when it is advertised for public comment by the City of Belmont," the Minister said.
The development plan is now with the City of Belmont for advertising and approval
Additional work will be required prior to development, including preparation of detailed heritage conservation strategies and remediation of contamination on the site
