Old Swanbourne Hospital

January 2014 - Local Area Plan Adopted

Aegis Aged Care Group has produced a Local Area Plan (LAP) to guide the development of the historic buildings into a residential Aged Care Facility that will accomodate 80 residents. It also proposes to utilise Montgomery Hall for social events such as weddings, theatre productions, dance preformances, exhibitions, conferences and meetings.

On 2 January 2014, The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) granted conditional approval for the adoption of the LAP. To see the conditional approval please click on the links entitled 'Text to support LAP, revised LAP and conditional WAPC approval.'

March 2012 - Outline Development Plan Approval by WAPC

The Western Australia Planning Commission adopted an outline Development Plan for the Old Swanbourne in March 2012. To view this, please click on the link below.

Proposed Outline Development Plan

In February 2010, the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) approved for advertising, a proposed Outline Development Plan (ODP) for the Old Swanbourne Hospital.

This proposed ODP was approved by the City in August 2010 subject to conditions. The proposal approved for advertising by the WAPC represents a compromise between the proposal submitted by the applicant and the modifications requested by the City.

The proposed ODP is open for public consultation for 3 weeks, with submissions closing on 29 March 2011. ODP details are available for inspection at the City's Administration Centre, libraries, the open day and online.

Open day
Wednesday 16 March 2011
4 pm to 8pm
Mt Claremont Community Centre

These documents are available for download. See related links: Documents for comment and documents for information.

Members of the community are strongly urged to pass on their views about the proposal to the City. The feedback from the community consultation will be included in a report for the Council, which will include a recommendation on the ODP. The City is keen to develop this historical site in a timely manner, but it must be done in a way that takes in the long-term needs of the surrounding area.

Submission to Heritage Council

The City of Nedlands has made a submission to the Heritage Minister, the Hon. John Castrilli, about the Heritage Council of Western Australia's application to have the Old Swanbourne Hospital site referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC), in a bid to have the City's planning powers taken away and given to the WAPC and to remove all of the City's Town Planning Scheme requirements from the site.
