Local Planning Strategy (draft)

Local Planning Strategy

The draft Local Planning Strategy was presented to Council in February 2013 and forwarded to the Western Australian Planning Commission seeking support to advertise for public comment. The strategy provides guidance for future development of the City, and provides the basis for review of the Local Planning Scheme No.17. 

The strategy focuses on ten themes including:

  • Natural resource management and environmental protection;
  • Population and housing;
  • Economy and employment;
  • Activity centres;
  • Tourism;
  • Open space and community facilities;
  • Rural land uses;
  • Urban design and heritage;
  • Transport, traffic and access; and
  • Infrastructure services
