Residential Design Codes (R Codes)

The Residential Design Codes are commonly called the "R-Codes" and provide a comprehensive basis for local governments to control residential development.

They generally apply to residential zones throughout Western Australia. They also specify the requirements for development control and minimise the need for separate planning policies for residential development.

Where can I view the R-Codes?

You can view the Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes) on the Department of Planning website. If you need a copy you should contact them directly.
