Council supports planning changes

Extensive community feedback has helped the City of Gosnells finalise two important planning documents – the Local Planning Scheme 24 (LPS 24) and Local Planning Strategy.

Council endorsed these two planning its meeting on 23 February 2021.

The decision followed a six-month period of public consultation. The City received 183 submissions from landowners, residents and government agencies, prompting a number of changes in relation to higher density development around train stations and activity centres, and proposed zoning in the City’s Rural areas.

Council supported almost half of the 183 submissions received, either in part or in full – and this resulted in the adoption of many extra refinements to the draft Scheme.

The documents have now been submitted to the Western Australian Planning Commission for consideration, with a request that the Minister for Planning grant final approval of the LPS 24.
