Draft Position Statement - Special Entertainment Precincts

Closed 14 Feb 2020

Opened 22 Nov 2019

Overview

The State Government is seeking feedback on reforms to establish special entertainment precincts in Western Australia. 

The reforms aim to ensure the ongoing viability of our State’s entertainment industry by balancing the needs of venues with other businesses and residents in vibrant entertainment areas.

What is a special entertainment precinct?

A special entertainment precinct is an area with a diverse mix of land uses (both residential and commercial) including entertainment venues which contribute to an active night-time economy.

How can I provide feedback?

There are two individual State Government reform elements needed to establish a special entertainment precinct.

  • Western Australian Planning Commission’s Draft Position Statement: Special Entertainment Precincts

The following survey questions relate to the Draft Position Statement only. The objective of the draft position statement is to provide guidance to local governments on the designation of special entertainment precincts.

Submissions close on 14 February 2020.

  • Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997

If you would like to provide feedback on proposed amendments to the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation’s Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 please visit www.consult.dwer.wa.gov.au.
