City Planning Strategy
The City of Perth has prepared a draft City Planning Strategy. In accordance with the City’s Corporate Business Plan and Strategic Community Plan 2029. The Strategy is intended to guide future land use planning and decision-making for Perth city over the next 10 -15 years. The Strategy sets out a shared vision for Perth city and a framework for the coordinated delivery of projects and actions which require stakeholder and government collaboration.
All local governments are required to prepare a planning strategy in accordance with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 (Planning Regulations). This will be the first planning strategy for the city.
Beyond legislative requirements, there are broader reasons which warrant the preparation of a planning strategy. The City’s population is growing and is expected to triple by 2050. The City has a responsibility to ensure that it is prepared and equipped to cater to this growth. State Government policy, such as Perth & Peel @3.5million aim to set out a framework to guide growth over the next 35 years, however a planning strategy plays a critical role in ensuring that a coordinated approach to growth is achieved at a local and sub-regional level.
Over the next 10 -15 years, the City will face opportunities and challenges primarily driven by this population growth. The Draft Strategy identifies the most important land use planning and development issues facing the City moving forward, and presents a framework for the City, community and various government agencies to work together to overcome these challenges and achieve a more sustainable future.
