Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of South Perth is inviting stakeholder and community feedback on the draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7 (draft LPS 7). The draft LPS 7 will replace the City’s existing Town Planning Scheme No. 6 (TPS 6) and is a statutory document that guides how land is used and developed in the City.

The draft LPS 7 proposes changes to the ‘zones’ and ‘densities’ (also known as R-Codes) of properties within ‘growth areas’. These changes may affect your property and influence future redevelopment in your local area.

How can I find out if my property is affected by the proposed changes?

Use the mapping tool to find out if your property is in a growth area and if the density code is proposed to change. You can also use this tool to look at any other areas in the City that may be of interest to you. You can also find out information on current and future zones as part of the mapping tool. View instructions about how to use the mapping tool.

How can I find out more?

The draft LPS 7 is a comprehensive document, so we have developed a variety of tools to make it easier to provide feedback.

To find out how the proposed changes may affect your property and influence future redevelopment in your local area, please refer to the Need to know information sheet which in addition explains how to provide the most useful and constructive feedback.

There are also information sheets about Growth Areas, Residential Design Codes and a Planning Framework Overview.

The City is also seeking feedback on the draft Building Height Local Planning Policy and the draft Salter Point Escarpment Local Planning Policy. These policies outline proposed development standards and objectives used by the City to assess and make decisions on planning applications under draft LPS 7, specifically with regard to building height. Find out more about these draft policies and provide feedback online.
