Swan Valley Planning Scheme No. 1 - Amendment 2

Closed 1 Nov 2022

Opened 21 Sep 2022


The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend Swan Valley Planning Scheme No. 1. 

The amendment proposes to:

  • Insert a new clause 39A, providing the WAPC with limited discretion to approve subdivision proposals not satisfying certain Schedule 5 subdivision requirements.  
  • Insert a new 'All zones' subdivision requirement within Schedule 5, stipulating necessary exclusions from the minimum lot size requirements (e.g. land required for infrastructure and/or public purposes). 
  • Insert a new Priority Agriculture zone subdivision requirement within Schedule 5, allowing the WAPC to consider/approve subdivision necessary to acquire land for infrastructure and/or public purposes, protect areas of conservation value, or facilitate built heritage conservation. 
  • Modify the succession subdivision criteria applicable in the Priority Agriculture and Swan Valley Rural zones, in order to address identified challenges in the application of certain criteria and avoid duplication with requirements already applicable across all zones.
