Jetty and Mooring Requirements in the Canal Development Zone


Purpose In accordance with Clause 6.2.7 of Councils Town Planning Scheme No 4, Councils prior planning consent is required for all development within the Canal Development zone.

Interpretation For the purpose of interpreting this policy, all terms shall have the meaning given under the provisions of Councils Town Planning Scheme No 4. Note: There is no maximum size applicable to vessels under this policy, but rather specifications which may be utilised by Council to determine applications.

The form should be lodged together with the relevant application fee and three copies of plans of the development, detailing the following matters as a minimum The location of the proposed structure in relation to the existing canal wall, property boundaries and any adjacent structures. A detailed design of the proposed structure, including an elevation of the structure in relation to the high water mark.

LOCAL PLANNING POLICY

Notes: 1. With the exception of certain canal properties (ie. the Moorings and Sapphire Waters), private landowners do not own the portion of the canal where jetties and mooring envelopes are located. Applications for development on Crown Land must be signed by the Department of Planning as landowner (DoP Mandurah Office) prior to lodging with Council. 2. In addition the Shire of Murrays Application for Planning Consent (Form No 1), planning consent is also required under the Western Australian Planning Commissions Peel Region Scheme. Although this application is lodged with the Shire of Murray, a separate form must be completed. 3. Furthermore, once Planning Consent is obtained under both Councils Town Planning Scheme No 4 and the Peel Region Scheme, an application for a licence to construct a jetty must be lodged with the Department of Transport Coastal Asset Management Branch (1 Essex Street, Fremantle). Assessment Criteria In assessing an application for a jetty or mooring envelope in any canal system, the Shire of Murray shall have regard to the following matters, in addition to those considerations outlined by Clause.3.3.2 of the Scheme (a) Unless otherwise approved by Council, jetties and mooring envelopes shall comply with the following (i) with the exception of The Moorings, no mooring envelope shall exceed 3.5 metres in width (as measured from the approved jetty) and no mooring or jetty envelope shall encroach within 1.5 metres of a propertys side boundary; (ii) jetties shall be wholly located within the jetty envelope as shown on the concept plan for the relevant estate, as adopted by Council from time to time. (iii) jetties shall not exceed 2.5 metres in width, with a walkway or platform extending to the jetty being not more than 1.5 metres in width and fixed in such a manner as to facilitate removal; (iv) the length of vessels to be berthed at a jetty approved under this policy shall not exceed 50% of the Clearwater adjacent to the jetty, to the satisfaction of the Director Technical Services. (b) Variations of the side setback specified in Clause (a) (i) above may be approved provided the proposal is referred to any affected landowner for comment over a 14-day period and any submissions are considered. Where there is insufficient room to accommodate individual property jetties, the Shire of Murray will consider shared jetties between landowners.
