Amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations 2015

Closed 7 Feb 2020

Opened 17 Dec 2019


The State Government is establishing a Container Deposit Scheme for Western Australia to encourage greater recycling of beverage containers.

While primarily an Environment, Water and Regulation portfolio initiative, there are a number of planning considerations associated with the development of the scheme and its implementation.

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) released a position statement which sets out how container deposit scheme infrastructure should be considered and assessed within the State’s planning system.

More recently, to assist with the rollout of associated infrastructure for container refund points, amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 are being proposed.

The Minister for Planning is seeking public comment on the draft amendment, which has been prepared under section 256 of the Planning and Development Act 2005.
