Development approvals

The City of Swan is responsible for planning its local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development.

The City does this by preparing and administering a Local Planning Scheme and strategy. This is a formal document that sets out how land in the City of Swan can be used and developed.

You can view and download this document, the City's Local Planning Scheme No. 17 (LPS17)(PDF, 3MB) . (Please note: This document contains recent gazetted amendments emphasised by red text).

If you would prefer, you can purchase a hard copy of the LPS17 by calling 9267 9267 to enquire about the cost and so we can have it ready for you.

You may wish to refer to the basic DA assessment process map to understand the process taken once you submit your DA.
