Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3

In June 2020 the Council of Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, at a Special Council Meeting, supported the Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3.

Council considered the submissions received and supported the Scheme No. 3 requiring some changes to be made as per the Table of Modifications included in the report.

They further requested that the documents be provided to the Western Australian Planning Commission for consideration in terms of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015.

 Special Council Meeting Agenda

On Tuesday, 14 March 2023, the Statutory Planning Committee (SPC) of the Western Australian Planning Commission considered the Shire’s new Local Planning Scheme No. 3. 

The item was considered as a confidential item and other than that there are several minor modifications (the specifics have not been made public).

The next steps in the process are that the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage will advise the Shire to make the necessary changes to the Scheme text and mapping based on the SPC decision.  The process is explained in the flowchart here.

Shire officers will ensure that the modifications are made and that the documents are prepared for gazettal. The modifications will not be made public until gazettal to ensure that the integrity of the document is retained. Once the new scheme is gazetted the new scheme will be published on the Shire’s website in its entirety.
