Hamilton Senior High School

Consultation has concluded

Hamilton Senior High School

A new residential community is set to be developed in Hamilton Hill, following the amalgamation of Hamilton Senior High School in December 2017.

The site is a 15.381ha land parcel located in the south–east area of Hamilton Hill, adjacent to the suburb of Coolbellup.

In 2014, the State Government announced South Fremantle and Hamilton Senior High Schools would be amalgamated as a new independent public secondary college in 2018.

At the request of Government, LandCorp have been working closely with the Department of Education and other Agencies to transition the site to a new residential development.

    On Tuesday 16 October the project team had the chance to meet with the community and take them through the local structure plan for the redevelopment.

    A number of people popped in throughout the evening and it was great to meet the surrounding residents and highlight key features of the plan and listen to their feedback.

    Hamilton SHS officially closed its doors in 2017. The site is now ready for clearing, and demolition work is set to begin from 30 July 2018 August and expected to finish in December 2018.

    Hamilton SHS officially closed its doors in 2017. The site is now ready for clearing, and demolition work is set to begin from 30 July 2018 August and expected to finish in December 2018.

    Located in Hamilton Hill’s south-east, adjacent to Coolbellup, the site’s zoning was formally changed from Public Purpose – High School to Urban by the Minister for Planning, the Hon. Rita Saffioti, in June 2018.
    The Minister’s approval paves the way for a local planning scheme amendment and structure planning.

    The Local Structure Plan for the site was submitted to the City of Cockburn in early June 2018, and we expect these plans to become available for public comment later this year, during the Council’s formal advertising period.

    We’ll keep you updated on when these plans are available for feedback.

    As part of the community consultation process in transforming Hamilton SHS, some nearby residents expressed interest in improving the Purvis and Ralston Street streetscapes to create safe, green and attractive streets surrounding the development. We are now calling for residents around the school to have their say and get involved.

    f you’d like to be part of the streetscape Master Planning process, please contact Naomi Lawrence on 9482 7567.

    We have also been researching how to reduce water and energy usage and looking at innovative building concepts to ensure the development makes the best use of the site.

    Reflecting the sites history

    Most respondents were supportive of the re-use of some materials and public art to reflect the school's history.

    Additionally, potentially reflecting the site’s Aboriginal and school history with future street or park names was a recurring suggestion.

    Trees & Landscape

    Include natives and edible fruit trees throughout the redevelopment was widely supported.

    A number of people supported the use of deciduous trees with the benefit being around maximising winter sun.

    Community Hub Lock & Leave Facility

    Whilst the majority of respondents said that it met their expectations, a number of people indicated they would like to see the provision of kitchen facilities, tables and chairs in a space that could also be used for meetings. The inclusion of communal storage was also suggested.

    Top 4 amenities within the Neighbourhood Park & Bushland area

    Nature play

    Walking trails

    Picnic Benches

    Shade shelters with BBQ facilities

    Proposed Retail Uses

    Survey results indicated overwhelming support for a cafe.

    A proposed small local shop/convenience store was also supported by approximately 75% of respondents.

    Density on proposed multi-dwelling sites

    Majority of respondents were accepting of 3 storey developments

    Frequent comments pertained to the adoption of good design principles (clever orientation and maintaining view corridors)

    So where to from here?

    Following on from the community's comments and further discussions with the consultant team, we will continue to refine the concept plan and we expect the local structure plan to be submitted to the City of Cockburn in late 2017.

    Community feedback is a vital element of the planning process for the Hamilton Senior High School redevelopment, to ensure we create a new residential area that will be enjoyed by all.

    Over the past six months, we have sourced invaluable feedback from a variety of key stakeholders through community forums, as well as online through surveys and story submissions from residents on this website. Stakeholders include the local community and interest groups, Hamilton SHS leadership and students, local Aboriginal leaders, the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council, the City of Cockburn Council, executive and staff,...

Stakeholders include the local community and interest groups, Hamilton SHS leadership and students, local Aboriginal leaders, the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council, the City of Cockburn Council, executive and staff, and key State Government agencies.

    Thank you to all community members who took the time to share stories, ideas and feedback on this exciting new residential development.

    Your feedback will inform the development of a concept plan prepared by our expert consultant team, which includes Hames Sharley (Planners and Urban Design), Josh Byrne and Associates (Landscape, Water and Environment), TABEC (Engineers and Geotechnical) and CodeSwitch (Aboriginal engagement). Based on community feedback, the project team are now exploring:

    • Retention of trees and bushland.

    • Reducing major earthworks by utilising existing levels where possible.

    • Respecting the site’s Aboriginal heritage and culture, especially as an important place to camp, rest and revive.

    • Incorporating the school’s history and stories into future street names and parks.

    • Adding sustainability into the redevelopment with clever lot orientation, lightweight building construction and renewable energy.

    • Considering opportunities for community parks, amenities and facilities.

    • Designing public open spaces that provide great views and connect to the surrounding neighbourhood via a network of paths, roads and cycle lanes.

    Overall, the project planning for this development will focus on the following four key areas:

    1. Community wellbeing – create inviting, user-friendly open spaces with wide community appeal.

    2. Environmental responsibility – maximise tree canopy coverage by retaining or replacing existing trees.

    3. Design excellence – create a high-quality development that encourages adaptable and alternative building techniques.

    4. Economic health – provision of affordable housing options and opportunity to investigate affordable living through reduced energy and water bills.

    Stay informed

    The concept plans will be available for community review in late June through the website. If you’d like to stay informed about development updates, please click here to register your interest.
