Town Planning Scheme

The Town Planning Scheme describes the zoning of land within the Town and specifies where particular land uses are permitted. It also sets out development standards for the development and use of land.

Scheme text

The scheme text should be read in conjunction with Schedule 2 'Deemed provisions for local planning schemes' of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, which are automatically incorporated into the TPS scheme text notwithstanding that they do not appear in the scheme text. For ease of reference a working version of the scheme text (including reference to the applicable deemed provisions) is available for viewing below in addition to a Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) version.

Review report

In accordance with regulation 65 of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, the Town has undertaken a review of its operative town planning schemes. The review recommended that a new Local Planning Scheme should be prepared and the Town of Victoria Park Town Planning Scheme No. 1 should be repealed upon the approval of the new scheme. The Scheme Review Report was approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission in November 2017. The Scheme Review Report can be viewed below.


Proposed Local Planning Scheme No.2

The Town is currently drafting a new Local Planning Scheme. Scheme No.2 is based on the recommendations of the Local Planning Strategy which can be found here(PDF, 11MB).

At the 16 August Council Meeting, Council resolved to endorse the draft Scheme No.2 for public advertising.  A copy of the Council Report can be found here (go to 16 August Council meeting, Item 12.4).  Before the Town can proceed to advertising, the Town must also seek the permission of the WA Planning Commission. This process may take several months, so formal advertising of the draft Scheme won't take place until early 2023 at the earliest.
