Local Planning Schemes

Local Planning Schemes establish the planning aims for the district, such as providing suitable housing, protecting the amenity and character of an area or providing opportunities for employment through the provision of commercial and industrial land. Local Planning Schemes are effectively the local planning rules which determine where development can occur, and the manner and form of the development. 

Local Planning Scheme No. 11

Local Planning Scheme No. 11 (LPS 11) was gazetted on 26 April 2024 and is the primary planning instrument guiding across the Town.  The key function of the Scheme is to provide for the zoning and reservation of land, land use permissibility and development controls.

It consists of a Scheme Text and Scheme Maps, which are read in conjunction with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme Regulations 2015) (Schedule 2 – Deemed Provisions). The deemed provisions replace various provisions of the Scheme Text and prevail where there is any inconsistency, while provisions of the Scheme Text which are not inconsistent with the deemed provisions continue to apply.

Town Planning Scheme 4A

Town Planning Scheme No. 4A (the Scheme) is a guided resumptive development scheme relating to Ashfield Flats, Bindaring/Pickering Park and a number of smaller areas in the Town of Bassendean.

The Scheme has been operating since 20 January 1981 and as such, predates the former Town of Bassendean - Town Planning Scheme No. 3 which was a land use zoning scheme that applies to the whole district.  Town Planning Scheme No. 3 has been replaced by Local Planning Scheme No. 10.
