Planning Cockburn – Our City 2036

Consultation has concluded

June 2019

See the feedback reports on this project by clicking on the links below.

It was wonderful to meet with many of you as part of the Planning Cockburn 2036 workshops.

We collected an enormous amount of input from the workshops and also some emailed comments from those that couldn’t attend on the day.

From this page, select the workshop/s you are interested in. This will take you to a page where you can view a copy of the presentation given at the workshop and the report on the workshop.

The next steps are:

  • The draft Strategy will be developed over 2019

    • Given the Minister's recent refusal of the Lakes Scheme amendment, an increased priority is progression of the Local Planning Strategy.

    • The City have met with Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage staff for guidance in the document drafting stage.

  • Later, formal consultation will be organised on the draft Strategy once Council and the WA Planning Commission give permission for public consultation;

  • Updates on the progress of the draft Strategy will be available on the above webpage.


Previous phases of development...

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.
