NOTICE OF REQUIRED REVIEW OF LOCAL PLANNING SCHEME NO. 21


Notice is hereby provided that the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) has made a determination in regard to the required review of Local Planning Scheme No. 21 (LPS21).

After considering the submitted ‘Report of Review’ adopted by the Council at its Ordinary Meeting of 22 May 2019, the WAPC has resolved not to support the City of Busselton’s proposed options to amend LPS21 and has instead required the City to prepare a new Local Planning Scheme.

The WAPC decision is contained in correspondence from the WAPC dated 1 October 2019 which, together with the Council report and resolution of 22 May 2019, is required to be published on the City Website. Hard copies of these documents are also available for public inspection at the City Administration Offices in Southern Drive, Busselton.

The preparation of a new Scheme provides an opportunity to prepare an innovative and contemporary planning instrument to guide future growth and development, whilst protecting the City's significant landscape values and environmental / cultural heritage.

The preparation of the new Local Planning Scheme commenced in January 2020, following further collaboration between officers from the City and the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage. Both the City and the Department are committed to the timely and effective preparation of, and smooth transition to, a new Local Planning Scheme.

Until such time as the new Local Planning Scheme has been gazetted, the standards, objectives and requirements of the current LPS21 shall continue to apply.

Further information and updates in regard to the preparation of the new Local Planning Scheme will be made available on the City Website at appropriate stages during the Scheme preparation process.
