What's next for draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5 and draft Local Planning Strategy

The city now has four months to collate and evaluate all the responses in order to identify issues and trends raised by the community. Council will consider all feedback and make a recommendation which will be sent to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for consideration.

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

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.
