Local Planning Strategy & Scheme

The City is pleased to advise that a decision has been made on our long-awaited Local Planning Scheme No. 2. At this stage the City can confirm that the Concrete Batching Plant sites in Claisebrook will be rezoned to Mixed Use with an R Code of R160 and an Additional Use that will allow them to continue to operate until 30 June 2024. The decision brings much-needed certainty of the future of Claisebrook that will allow the area to develop into a mixed use inner city hub. We are currently working through the details of all the other modifications and will provide detailed updates in the future.

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 zonings for the land, which in turn indicate the type of uses that may be possible in each particular area.

Town Planning Scheme No. 1

The City of Vincent Town Planning Scheme No. 1 was published in the Government Gazette on 4 December 1998. The Town Planning Scheme No. 1 maps are divided into 15 individual Precincts, which can be viewed in the Precinct Plan provided via the link below.

Please note that on the 19 October 2015 the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 came into effect. These Regulations were prepared by the State Government and now apply across Western Australia. Schedule 2 of these Regulations is to be read in conjunction with Town Planning Scheme No. 1. Where there is an inconsistency between Town Planning Scheme No. 1 and the Regulations the provision of the Regulations applies. More information on these new Regulations can be found on the Department of Planning’s website here.

Proposed Town Planning Scheme No. 2

Following extensive consultation in 2014 the City adopted the draft Local Planning Strategy and Town Planning Scheme No. 2.

The City’s Town Planning Scheme No. 2 and Local Planning Strategy represent the culmination of some 10 years of work commencing in 2004 with Vincent Vision 2024. The Scheme and Strategy presents a clear vision and certainty for future development and residents within the City of Vincent while still achieving important State Government objectives.

The City has recently been advised that the new Scheme has been approved, subject to making a number of detailed modifications. Further information will be provided once the City has analysed the details of these changes.
