Closed 29 Sep 2017

Opened 31 Aug 2017


The WAPC’s Guidelines for the Lifting of Urban Deferment specify the requirements to be met before the WAPC will agree to land being transferred from urban deferred to the urban zone in a region planning scheme.

The WAPC has endorsed a draft update to the November 2007 Guidelines for public comment. The key changes include:

  • References inserted to the Peel Region Scheme; Greater Bunbury Region Scheme; and the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015
  • Updated text on environmental requirements
  • New section on hazard and risk
  • New reference to fill requirements, including potential sources and transport implications.
