Planning Schemes

The Regulations, made under the Planning and Development Act 2005 (the Act), govern the way in which local planning strategies and local planning schemes are prepared, consolidated and amended.

Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015

All local governments in Western Australia are required to have a Local Planning Strategy and Scheme. The Strategy sets out the long term land use planning direction and vision for the City while the Scheme sets out the rules for development in the City that align with this direction and vision. The Local Planning Scheme maps provide the land zoning, which in turn indicates the type of uses that may be possible in each particular area.
