State planning policies are prepared and adopted by the WAPC under statutory procedures set out in part 3 of the Planning and Development Act 2005. The process of preparing a state planning policy also includes public consultation and consideration by the Planning Minister and the Governor.
The WAPC and local governments must have 'due regard' to the provisions of state planning policies when preparing or amending local planning schemes and when making decisions on planning matters. The State Administrative Tribunal is also required to take account of state planning policies when determining appeals.
State planning policies provided here are not necessarily the official gazetted copies. Gazetted copies should be obtained from the State Law Publisher.
