Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5 and draft Local Planning Strategy

Public Advertising of Recommended Modifications to Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5.

At its Special Council Meeting of 7 February 2019, the City of Subiaco Council resolved to Support Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5 with Modifications, and to advertise the modifications for not less than 60 days. Following closure of the advertising process, Council will consider all feedback and make a recommendation with respect to each submission, which will be sent to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for consideration along with all other relevant documentation.

Once submitted, the WAPC has four months to consider the local planning scheme and submit a recommendation to the Minister for Planning, who is the final decision-maker. To stay informed as the project progresses, keep an eye on this page.

The best way to make an effective submission on the modifications is to use the survey provided below. If you prefer to make a written submission by mail or email, you must take care to clarify the modification number you are commenting on.

  • The planning provisions of recent amendments to Town Planning Scheme No. 4 have been included; and
  • The scheme text has been updated for consistency with scheme map modifications, recent scheme amendments to TPS 4, issues raised in submissions, and other administrative changes.

About the project

All local governments in Western Australia are required to maintain a Local Planning Scheme to provide statutory planning controls for land use and development in the area. The Local Planning Scheme also implements the Council’s long term strategic direction, which is set out in the Local Planning Strategy. This includes the long term plan to accommodate increased population, add to the local economy and vibrancy of the Subiaco town centre, while maintaining the single residential and heritage character of significant areas within the City of Subiaco.

The City has revised its existing Local Planning Strategy and prepared draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5. These documents were reviewed by the State Government which required the city to make a number of changes prior to public advertising.

Before coming into effect the Local Planning Strategy will need to be endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission and Local Planning Scheme No. 5 will need to be determined by the Minister of Planning. The Minister’s options are to approve, require modifications, or refuse to approve (as per Part 5, Division 4, s. 87 of the of Planning and Development Act 2005).

The State Government will consider your input and the Council's recommendation when making its final decision.

The draft LPS 5 which was advertised in 2018 included blanket densities around Daglish and Shenton Park which were required to be advertised by the Western Australian Planning Commission.

    On 7 February 2019 Council supported a modified LPS 5 which removed the blanket densities from Daglish and Shenton Park, and allocated appropriate density in key and appropriate locations. These changes were based on community feedback received during the 2018 consultation period. At the 7 February Special Council Meeting, Council resolved to advertise the proposed modifications for public comment.

    The modifications which are currently being advertised are the changes between the advertised version of draft LPS 5 (advertised from 13 April 2018 to 13 July 2018) and the Council supported version of draft LPS 5 from the 7 February 2019 Special Council Meeting. Under the Planning Regulations, public submissions can only be received in relation to these specific changes.

    The following questions will guide you through the proposed modifications on the draft Scheme Map (remember to scroll down to see the map) and Text on which submissions can be made. You can choose which modification you wish to comment on, and you may wish to comment or more than one modification.

    Feedback received during this process will be presented to Council following advertising. Council will consider the submissions in making a recommendation to the Western Australian Planning Commission.
