Local Planning Strategy

Help shape the City's future

The City is preparing a Local Planning Strategy, which will guide and manage population and activity growth in the City of South Perth over the next 10 to 15 years.

The Strategy will provide the long term strategic direction for a range of topics influencing and influenced by planning and development, including housing, employment and activity, the environment, and transport. It will guide any changes to zoning and development standards set out in the City’s Local (Town) Planning Scheme.

The City is preparing the Strategy as the first step in the process of reviewing its existing Town Planning Scheme No. 6.
