Planning and Development Regulations

The Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 were gazetted on August 25, 2015 and took effect on October 19, 2015, replacing the Town Planning Regulations 1967.

The regulations are a major part of Western Australia's planning reform agenda, affecting arrangements for local planning strategies and town planning schemes and amendments.

In addition to a Model Scheme Text, the regulations have now introduced a set of deemed provisions, which automatically apply to every town planning scheme in WA from October 19, 2015.

For more information in relation to Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 please refer to the Western Australian Planning Commission.
