Modified LPS5 and Local Planning Strategy to be returned this week
In December 2019, the City was informed that the Minister for Planning and the Western Australian Planning Commission required modifications to the Local Planning Scheme No. 5 and the Local Planning Strategy respectively.
The City is required by legislation to make the modifications and return the documents by 23 January 2020.
A Special Council Meeting was held on 6 January 2020 and a letter was subsequently sent to the Minister requesting the modifications be reconsidered.
The City has since received a reply advising that the Minister expects the requested modified documents to be submitted by the due date.
The City will complete and return the amendments as per the instruction from the Minister by 23 January 2020, and as required by legislation.
The final step in the process is the gazettal of the scheme, and endorsement of the strategy.
Thank you for your input during our consultation on the City’s Local Planning Strategy (LPS) and Local Planning Scheme No. 5 (LPS5).
