Local Planning Strategy: Planning Cockburn – Our City 2036

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

The City has advanced preparation of the draft Local Planning Strategy, considering a draft at the 8 October 2020 Ordinary Meeting of Council that has now been referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for certification prior to the document being considered a ‘formal draft’ that can be advertised for public comment.

While timelines will be dependent on when the City receives certification/consent to advertise from the WAPC, progressing the Local Planning Strategy will involve the following steps:

  • 2021 - Formal advertising of draft Local Planning Strategy (following WAPC certification/consent to advertise) - which will include extension community and stakeholder engagement
  • Consideration of submissions
  • Presentation of Local Planning Strategy to Council for support and referral to WAPC for endorsement.

Background Information

In 2018 we advertised a series of local profile papers about the key issues that the City’s new local planning strategy and scheme should address. Read the consultation report here.
