Draft Local Planning Strategy and Local Planning Scheme No. 11

The State Government’s Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million land use planning and infrastructure frameworks aim to accommodate 3.5 million people by 2050, encouraging greater housing diversity to meet changing community needs.  Under this framework, the Town is required to deliver at least 4,150 new dwellings, increasing the population to approximately 24,300 people.  The Town is reviewing its current planning framework to support this growth, whilst still maintaining a liveable community, protecting the area’s unique natural environment and heritage.

There is extensive background relating to the preparation of the draft local planning frameworks for certification to advertise. A chronological explanation of the project is detailed in the report presented to the 28 June 2022 Council Meeting.

At that meeting, Council considered the draft Local Planning Strategy and resolved to note that it will be advertised for public comment. That consultation took place in August 2022 and the matter will now be presented back to Council for consideration.
