Heidelberg Park is a regional reserve, located at 420 Canning Road, Carmel and is also bordered by Pomeroy Road.

The community during the engagement process expressed a high level of desire for aged care, protection of environmental values and enhanced public open space.

Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) Amendment

Due to the community’s desire for aged care, the City after consultation with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) sought to initiate an MRS Amendment at Heidelberg Park. At the November 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to request the Western Australian Planning Commission to rezone a portion of Heidelberg Park from Parks and Recreation to Urban.

On 6 May 2020 the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) resolved to initiate the MRS Amendment. On 24 June 2020 the Environmental Protection Authority determined not to assess the Amendment.
