Consistent Local Planning Schemes

The WAPC has approved the Consistent Local Planning Schemes Final Report and associated Consultation Outcomes Report.

Proposed changes in the Consistent Local Planning Schemes Final Report are not expected to be integrated into the preparation of new local planning schemes or the amendment of existing local planning schemes, until they have been incorporated into the LPS Regulations. Guidance, including a list of variations to the model provisions will be provided in due course to assist with the consideration of these proposed changes in the preparation or amendment of local planning schemes.

In the interim, local governments preparing or amending local planning schemes are encouraged to engage with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage should they wish to discuss these proposed changes.

The Action Plan for Planning Reform (Action Plan) includes initiative (C1) 'local planning schemes are more consistent'. In response, the Consistent Local Planning Schemes Final Report was prepared with a focus on providing greater consistency for zones, reserves and land use definitions in local planning schemes and the permissibility in non-residential zones in Perth and Peel.
