CLE Town Planning + Design assisted Opal Aged Care to obtain planning approval for a three-storey, 120 bed residential aged care facility within an established low density residential precinct of Alfred Cove. This proposal superseded a previous controversial proposal for the site and delivered a sensitive and place-appropriate outcome through the Joint Development Assessment Panel approval, providing a solution to the undersupply of aged care accommodation within the City of Melville. CLE Town Planning + Design was carefully managed community consultation prior to the lodgement of the application.

 

CLE Town Planning + Design’s experience in residential aged care, the negotiation of proposals through the Joint Development Assessment Panel Process and experience in the delivery of built form projects in established infill areas contributed to a positive planning outcome for the Opal Alfred Cove project.

CLE Town Planning + Design was engaged to obtain planning approval for a residential aged care proposal for Opal Aged Care via the Joint Development Assessment Panel pathway.

 

This project presented challenges given it was for the redevelopment of an existing residential aged care facility in an established, low-density residential precinct. Substantial engagement occurred with the local authority prior to, and following, lodgement with a focus on the potential impacts of development within the surrounding residential context. Community consultation was critical in ensuring a timely and positive planning outcome.

 

CLE Town Planning + Design secured approval for a 3 storey, 136-bed residential aged care facility incorporating a consulting rooms at ground level. CLE Town Planning + Design prepared significant justification for this aspect of the proposal recognising that the consulting rooms were a critical aspect in allowing for ‘ageing in place’, with services readily available to residents and the broader community.
