Mayor Penny Taylor: Save Subi! Support our History & Homes not Highrise!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

We, the undersigned, respectfully request the Mayor and councillors of the City of Subiaco to reject the Draft Local Planning Scheme 5 as amended by the Department of Planning, Land and Heritage and, further, we ask that the Mayor and councillors seek a minimum of 24 months period of time to develop an alternative Local Planning Scheme that protects the historical neighbourhoods of the City of Subiaco.

The Nyungar area now known as Subiaco, in Western Australia, has a long and rich history with stories from the Early settlers and Benedictine monks, through the first and second world wars, as the state's home of Australian Rules Football for over 100 years, as the birthplace of many and as a vibrant, green group of inner-city suburbs. It has contributed so much to the fabric of Perth and is home to many important landmarks.

Subiaco has consistently led the way in modelling what a successful, higher density, inner-city commercial and residential area can be. It is and always has been such a special and proud place!

Now the State Government is planning to rezone nearly 50% of historic Subiaco, Shenton Park and Daglish for massive high-density development. This is simply unjustified and will permanently destroy these historic neighbourhoods, their amenity and what attracts families and visitors here. Subiaco has already met its density targets, there is no need for this destructive plan so don’t let it happen!

We are calling on the Mayor and elected councillors of the City of Subiaco to stand with its residents and help us Save Subi and protect this important and precious place for current and future generations. This is a fight for us all, because you can’t replace history. Once it’s gone, its gone. Let's create a positive future together instead!
