DAGLISH has been classified as a place of heritage for its large streetscapes of interwar homes.

The National Trust of WA (NTWA) added Daglish to its List of Classified Places for its rare streets and housing designs.

Although Daglish has now been classified as a heritage place, there are no restrictions imposed on the City when it comes to planning developments within the suburb.

Mayor Penny Taylor said the City was working to protect Daglish through its modifications to Local Planning scheme No.5 (LPS5).

“The progress on LPS5 is the culmination of more than five years’ work by council and City staff to protect Daglish and our other character suburbs from the threat of imposed densities by the WAPC of up to R100,” Ms Taylor said

“In identifying the eleven areas in the Local Planning Strategy for further investigation, we will keep working to protect our streetscapes and the things we love about Daglish.”

NTWA chief executive Julian Donaldson said the classification supported City of Subiaco’s work to recognise Daglish as a place of heritage significance.

“The National Trust looks forward to working with the City and community to ensure the heritage values of places are conserved into the future,” he said.
