Local Planning Scheme

Shire of Mundaring's key planning framework includes the Local Planning Scheme No 4 (LPS 4) and Local Planning Strategy No 4. The documents set out the long-term planning directions for the Shire and apply State and regional planning policies.

LPS 4 divides the Shire of Mundaring district into zones to identify areas for particular uses and identifies land reserved for public purposes. Most importantly, the Scheme controls the types of uses and development allowed in different zones. There are particular controls included for heritage and special control areas.

The Scheme Text also sets out the requirements for planning approval, enforcement of the Scheme provisions and nonconforming uses.

The WA Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 were gazetted in August and took effect from 19 October 2015, replacing the Town Planning Regulations 1967. The 2015 Regulations included Deemed Provisions which automatically become part of every local planning scheme. Until an integration amendment has been completed, the Scheme Text of the Shire’s LPS 4 must be read in conjunction with the Deemed Provisions.
