   Local Planning Manual  (2663.76 KB)

A guide to the preparation of local planning strategies and local planning schemes in Western Australia.

The updated manual reflects the changes in legislative requirements introduced with the Planning and Development Act 2005 and replaces the Planning Schemes Manual.

The manual has been expanded to include a section on the application of local planning schemes to assist the general public in gaining a better understanding of the local planning framework

This update is an interim measure until the review of the Model Scheme Text and Planning and Development Regulations has been completed. Following the completion of the review the manual will be updated to reflect any legislative changes.
