Metropolitan Region Scheme amendment 1387/57 – Breakwater Drive Other Regional Roads (Lisford Avenue to Mitchell Freeway Reservation)

Closed 20 May 2022

Opened 18 Mar 2022


The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) for land in the City of Wanneroo local government boundary.

The amendment proposes to create an Other Regional Roads (ORR) reservation for Breakwater Drive over a distance of 6.8 kilometres, with sufficient width to allow this existing local road to be duplicated to a four-lane dual carriageway. The proposal aligns with the road’s intended purpose under Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million (WAPC, 2018) and allows for orderly land use planning to occur along the corridor.

The amendment involves transferring 28.6 hectares from Urban, Urban Deferred, Rural zones and Parks and Recreation reservation to ORR reservation in the MRS. It includes 18.4 ha of the existing Breakwater Drive road reserve. 


The WAPC certifies that, in its opinion, the proposed amendment do not constitute a substantial alteration to the MRS.
