North Beach Urban Renewal Precinct

The Department of Communities is seeking to revitalise its properties and enhance the North Beach precinct. We have listened to you and will focus on Ellingham Street, Cromer Way and Sedgeford Road.

We will provide a range of housing choices, improving accessibility, liveability and the streetscape, and encouraging opportunities for increased social interaction.

Your vision for the North Beach precinct

“The North Beach Urban Renewal precinct embodies the relaxed and coastal character of North Beach, it is a place that connects us with the natural landscape and enables us to evolve as a community.”

What have we been doing?

The Department of Communities has been reviewing the information provided by the community, undertaking detailed market research and discussing with both the City of Stirling and the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage opportunities for the North Beach Precinct. The City of Stirling has also released its Local Planning Strategy that provides further direction on how North Beach will evolve over the next 10 to 15 years.

Based on this research and community feedback, we will not prepare a local development plan over the precinct bounded by Charles Riley Road, North Beach Road and Marmion Avenue. There was general agreement from the community that the current zoning of ‘Residential R30’ enables an increase in density that still maintains the character of the suburb.

As such, we have progressed with the following:
  • Sold several properties within the precinct, including vacant lots on Charles Riley Road. We also intend to sell three Communities-owned properties that front Mundford Street.
  • Continued assessing other Communities-owned properties that may be suitable for sale, based on tenant needs and age of the properties.
  • Engaged new architects Gresley Abas and urban planners CLE to prepare draft scheme amendment documentation to be taken to the community with concepts for the Cromer Way precinct.
  • Held an expo on 27 June 2019, where the community had an opportunity to view and provide feedback on a new pre-concept option for the Cromer Way Sub-Precinct. The pre-concept option is available to view online.

Next steps

Thank you to everyone who attended the community expo and submitted your valuable feedback on 27 June 2019. All the responses received may be used to inform the next iteration of the pre-concept for the Cromer Way Sub-Precinct.

This pre-concept plan will assist the rezoning proposal for the Cromer Way Sub-Precinct that will be submitted to the City of Stirling for consideration. The City will formally advertise this proposal, as part of its statutory requirements, and there will be an opportunity to provide a written submission.

The online survey has now closed and we thank everyone who took the time to provide responses.

Let’s keep the conversation going

We will continue to provide updates on this page as they are available.

In the meantime, please email if you have any questions or would like to make a comment about the North Beach Urban Renewal precinct project.

Thank you for your interest in the North Beach Urban Renewal Project. Together we can help to create a revitalised precinct with improved amenity that continues to embody the relaxed and coastal character of North Beach.​​​​
