Zoning and land use

Land development in the Shire is governed by the Shire of Toodyay Local Planning Scheme No 4.  The scheme classifies each piece of land by allocating it to a Zone.

The Scheme Map colour codes each of the zones for ease of reference. 

Each Zone has a set of objectives to guide planning decisions.  There is also a zoning table which sets out for each Zone whether a use is prohibited, permitted or requires a decision from Council.

The Department of Planning provides an interactive map which allows people to check their zoning on line.  If you are new to this system a demonstration video is available.
