Local Planning Strategy

The Local Planning Strategy provides a blueprint for the planning and development of neighbourhoods and commercial (activity) centres over the next 10 to 15 years and informs the preparation of a new Local Planning Scheme No.2 to replace Town Planning Scheme No.1.

The final Local Planning Strategy was endorsed by the WA Planning Commission in May 2022.


Draft Local Planning Scheme No.2

The Town has prepared a new draft Local Planning Scheme to guide development of the Town's growing and diverse community.

Local Planning Scheme No. 2 will replace the existing Town Planning Scheme No. 1 to become the primary statutory document of the Town’s planning framework and shape how land within the Town is developed in the future.

The proposed new Scheme is based on the recommendations of the Town’s Local Planning Strategy 2022 and the requirements of the State Government’s statutory and strategic planning framework. 

Following endorsement by Council (August 2022) and the Western Australian Planning Commission (April 2023), the Town is now inviting community feedback on the draft Scheme from 4 May 2023 until 4 August 2023.
